It was put in quarantine, according to US and French officials.

A photo shows the empty area where an oak tree was planted by President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron days earlier on the White House's South Lawn.

Trump - a fierce opponent of the agreement signed by Tehran and worldwide powers - must declare by May 12 if he will essentially walk away from the existing deal when the renewal deadline arrives on May 12, or stay in.

The tree that President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron planted at the White House as their wives looked on during the Macrons' state visit to Washington disappeared, causing a mystery to take root as to its whereabouts.

"I'm not telling you what I'm doing, but a lot of people think they know", Trump said during a joint news conference with the president of Nigeria.

Although Germany is unlikely to accept a wholesale rewrite of the Iran deal, Berlin has indicated that it is prepared to consider add-ons that would crack down on Tehran's ballistic missile program and curb Iranian efforts to strengthen its strategic role in the Middle East.

The Kremlin said Putin and Macron were both calling for "strict observance" of the hard-fought 2015 agreement, which Trump has threatened to torpedo. He also wants to scrap the deal's so-called "sunset clauses", one of which allows for the lifting of restrictions on Iran's nuclear enrichment programme after 2025.

When she came to, she said Cosby was penetrating her vagina with his fingers, groping her breasts and making her masturbate him. His lawyer known as Constand a "con artist" who levelled false accusations in opposition to Cosby so she might sue him.

Macron has positioned himself as an emissary for European officials seeking a compromise that would keep the deal intact, and has previously suggested an additional deal that extends Iran's nuclear restrictions. "The possibility of war exists".

Trump is widely expected to withdraw the USA from the worldwide Iran agreement next month, despite pleas from Macron earlier in the week and Merkel on Friday. He made killing the Iran nuclear accord a campaign pledge during his 2016 presidential run.

Well, after all the brouhaha, it turns out the tree planting was only ceremonial as he plant needed to be quarantined before it could be permanently planted, following U.S. Customs and Border Protection guidelines.

But after a state visit to the USA this week, he admitted he had failed to secure any promise from Trump to keep the deal alive.

"I think it would be a great celebration if it works out well", Trump said.

The proposal that Macron put forward to his United States counterpart involves preserving the existing agreement on the first of "four pillars" of a future deal, as mentioned by Le Gal. While some plants can be brought into the United States without advance permission, "certain plants and ANY plant parts intended for growing (propagative) require a foreign phytosanitary certificate in advance". Europe's plan would impose 25% tariffs on $3.4 billion (€2.8 billion) in various USA exports.

Trump has until that date to determine if he will continue to extend sanctions relief on Iran with or without the side deal he has sought from his Western allies.
