Trump offers condolences to France's Macron over Notre Dame fire - White House

President Donald Trump expressed condolences to French President Emmanuel Macron over the Notre Dame fire during a phone call on Tuesday and offered U.S. assistance in the rehabilitation of the cathedral, the White House said.

"Notre Dame will continue to serve as a symbol of France, including its freedom of religion and democracy," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement. "We remember with grateful hearts the tolling of Notre Dame’s bells on September 12, 2001, in solemn recognition of the tragic September 11th attacks on American soil. Those bells will sound again."
