Skip to comments.Tree Gifted By France Goes Missing From White House
Posted on 04/29/2018 4:31:10 PM PDT by cba123
A tree taken from a World War I battlefield in France and planted during French President Emmanuel Macrons state visit last week has disappeared from the White House lawn.
President Donald Trump, Macron, his wife Brigitte and Melania Trump all posed for photo ops on the south portion of the White House lawn last Monday as they used shovels to unearth a setting for the sapling. The gifted sessile oak tree originated from the site of the Battle of Belleau Wood in Belleau, France, in which American, French and other allied troops fought the Germans during World War One. But a Reuters photograph from Saturday shows the tree is no longer in place.

Yes, it is an international crisis that could affect Franco-American relations for years to come. /sarcasam
Maybe they pretended to plant it for the photo-op but it’s actually going to be planted somewhere else, by experts?
No mystery. It was removed and put in quarantine to address parasites. It will be replanted. They said it is doing well.
Just like the MLK bust?
Why would the MSM post this without doing even a tiny bit of detective work?
The CIA has it in rendition.
“Why would the MSM post this without doing even a tiny bit of detective work?”
Need you ask?
This can’t be true.
The only thing we can hope for is that it was ceremonially symbolic and carefully removed and taken to nurture until fall planting or whenever would be the best chances to survive and flourish.
I hope we are told; the cryptic comment from France might mean they know where it is and is doing all right.
Surprised they didn’t say that they are questioning an old friend of the President, Boris Kadivazinski.
See post 5...for the truth.
No, tree begone!
maybe the tree decided to return home to its friends and family in France?
It’s under quarantine to check for parasites and will be replanted. It’s doing good.
Maybe Mueller suspects it was a Russian tree secretly sent by Putin and it is being water boarded.
