This is What’s Trending Today…
A days-long mystery at the White House has been solved.
It involved the disappearance of a small tree. French President Emmanuel Macron and American President Donald Trump planted it last week on the grounds of the White House.
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.
Last Monday, Members of the media took videos and photos as the two leaders planted the sapling.
By the end of last week, though, the tree was nowhere to be found. People questioned why Trump or White House officials would have dug up the tree.
