Amid speculation, France on Sunday came through with an explanation: the tree, now not just a plant, but a symbol of US-French relations, had been placed in quarantine.

"This oak tree (my gift to [Donald Trump]) will be a reminder at the White House of these ties that bind us".

Australia and France are at the heart of a new Indo-Pacific axis to promote peace and stability in the region, French President Emmanuel Macron says.

The heels seemed somewhat out of place for gardening, but of course, she wasn't really gardening, and it turns out that neither was President Trump nor President Macron since the planting of the oak sapling turned out to be symbolic itself.

President Macron's gift quickly became an internet sensation, with a photo of the two men shovelling earth onto the sapling quickly turning into a meme.

The official added, "Don't worry, the tree is doing very well".

Matt Groening Responds to Apu Controversy: "People Love to Pretend They're Offended"
In this episode , Marge says, "Some things will be addressed at a later date", with Lisa chiming in to add, "If at all". Matt Groening recently responded to the debate about Apu in an interview with USA Today published on Friday.

The planting of the tree was one of many moments from the three-day visit. On January 12, Trump said the United States would quit the deal if certain amendments agreed on with the European countries were not made to it.

The French President has honoured Australian soldiers who put their lives on the line during World War I.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss a dozen or so other issues, and agree partnerships on the establishment of French small businesses in Australia, cooperation between universities, on health research, and on cultural art projects.

The statement said the leaders were also "committed to continue working closely together and with the US on how to tackle the range of challenges that Iran poses - including those issues that a new deal might cover".

Mr Macron said: "This White House so full of history that the British burned down in 1815, and I say this in the most amicable way, and that James Monroe then had the brilliant idea of decorating with French furniture. In fact, he was a former ambassador to Paris".

Or even, a week after his visit to Washington, a parody of President Donald Trump's infamous comments about Macron's wife?
