Macron presented Trump with the tree as a gift during his state visit to the United States.

The sapling carries special meaning: it came from an oak tree that grew on a World War I battle site. About 2,000 American soldiers died in the June 1918 Battle of Belleau Wood, fighting a German offensive.
