President Trump has been a busy man. He just returned from meeting with world leaders on his first trip abroad and has resumed his work on infrastructure and tax reform. But Saturday night he took a break relaxing at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. While there, he had a little fun; he crashed a wedding being held at the club.
The bride and groom were visibly astonished. Who wouldn’t want the president to attend their wedding? Trump was gracious enough to pose for pictures with the bride and groom and even gave a speech.
He didn’t stay for the entire party, according to one guest who said he only stayed for a few moments. “It was very brief. He waved to everyone. Everyone obviously got very excited, got out of their chairs and came to take pictures,” guest, Sean Burke, told the Washington Post.
“The bride came running out and he gave her a big hug and a kiss so she was just ecstatic. And then the groom found out, too… No one knew it was going to happen,” he added.
Trump picked the right wedding party to crash as many of the guest are adamant supporters of his. Many of the guests allegedly pulled out their Make America Great Again hats as they took pictures with the president.
Reports from various guests at the event claimed that after Trump left, the room burst out in a “USA! USA!” chant. Another guest at the wedding, Kat Kellerman, made a Facebook post about the experience, an experience which she claimed was “once in a lifetime.”
“It was a nice surprise to have the president pop down after dinner & personally congratulate Kristen & Tucker,” Kellerman wrote. “He was very gracious and personable,” she wrote.
This wasn’t the first time President Trump crashed a wedding party. In February, Trump made a surprise appearance at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla., where a wedding was also taking place.
Similar to the response at the New Jersey wedding, guests were in awe and one even made an Instagram post, “Making weddings great again!!”
Trump has always said that he wanted to makes things better for the average American. Showing up to strangers’ weddings and gracing them with his presence is one way he chooses to keep that promise.
