Twitter Shreds Trump For Hypocritical Tree Planting Ceremony With French President

When French President Emmanuel Macron arrived at the White House Monday for his first official state visit since President Donald Trump was elected, he brought a gift for the American head of state: A young European sessile oak tree, which the two men proceeded to plant on the grounds of the White House.

The tree has special historical importance, as the Huffington Post noted:

“It came from Belleau Wood, some 60 miles northeast of Paris, which was the site of a World War I battle where more than 9,000 American Marines died in combat.”

But to see climate change denier Donald Trump planting a tree was too much for many on Twitter, and if the president took time to read their barbs, he must have been enraged. Take a look at a few of the best postings:

It remains to be seen if Trump will allow White House groundskeepers to give the tree any water.
