Macron Planted Tree Is Dug Up To Go Into Quarantine

Trump shows Merkel and Macron that Europe's clout is dwindling

The two presidents have gone out of their way to stress their personal chemistry, planting a tree on the White House south lawn, holding a dinner at George Washington's house at Mount Vernon and hugging, hand-holding and cheek-kissing at the White House on Tuesday, where a traditional arrival ceremony featured almost 500 members of the us military and a booming 21-gun salute.

The two heads planted the sapling on April 23 in the South Lawn. She signaled that the close relationship with the USA was changing.

According to US Customs and Border Protection regulations, all plants brought into the country must be declared and inspected by agriculture specialists.

"We've certainly made some (progress with the Europeans)", he claimed.

The leaders of Britain, France and Germany agreed the Iran nuclear deal is the best way of stopping Tehran from gaining nuclear weapons, British Prime Minister Theresa May's office said in a statement on Sunday.

Directing his comments at US President Donald Trump, who is considering scrapping what he calls a terribly flawed agreement in the coming days, Ali Akbar Salehi was quoted by Iranian state TV as saying, "Iran is not bluffing ..." Trump signaled openness to the idea, without endorsing it explicitly.

The leaders "discussed the importance of the Iran nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) as the best way of neutralizing the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran, agreeing that our priority as an global community remained preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon", according to the statement.

The US action would place a 25% tariff on steel products and 10% tax on imported aluminum.

The European Commission, which oversees trade policy for the 28 EU members, has insisted that the United States grant it a permanent exemption without conditions. Europe's plan would impose 25% tariffs on $3.4 billion (€2.8 billion) in various United States exports.

"They've learned that you can't win if you don't play, but also they need to take a long-term view", said Rathke, a former USA diplomat who served in Europe.
