President Donald Trump returned from the Daytona 500 NASCAR race to attend the wedding of his special advisor Stephen Miller at the weekend.
In a statement issued to reporters on Sunday, the White House said: “The President is at Trump International Hotel for the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Miller,” according to Politico.
Although the White House did not name the bride, Miller was engaged to Katie Waldman, who has been serving as press secretary for vice president, Mike Pence.
One of the few staffers left from the 2016 intake, 34-year-old Miller wrote Trump’s inauguration speech.
He was also central to the Trump administration’s controversial immigration policie, such as the discontinued “zero tolerance” policy, in which adults illegally crossing the border into the U.S. faced criminal prosecution.
This resulted in children being taken from their parents and put into government custody, and was reversed in June 2018.
President Donald Trump spoke at the couple’s wedding
Philip Wegmann from Real Clear News tweeted that Trump spoke at the couple’s wedding, reportedly telling those present: “He is the only one who could have a damn wedding in the middle of Presidents’ Day weekend. I’m sure it didn’t affect anybody here.”
