What do you give the French President and his wife during their state visit?
Well, according to CNN, if you are President Donald Trump and first lady Melania, a section of framed upholstery from a chair in the White House’s Blue Room.
But, this is no ordinary chair. Adorned with a golden eagle, the chair was commissioned by former President James Monroe who served as a diplomat in France.
According to The Hill, although Former President James Buchanan got rid of the set, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy found the pieces during the Kennedy administration and had a French designer restore them.
French President Emmanuel Macron told FOX News that he will gift President Trump an oak sapling taken from the site of a landmark World War I battle in France in hopes that it will be planted in the White House gardens as a symbol of lasting friendship.
