Former President Donald Trump took to the dance floor of his Mar-a-Lago country club that hosted a wedding reception to complain about his election loss and hate President Biden, China, Iran and the current crisis on the southern border, before finally wishing it happy few good.
Trump appeared at the reception dressed in a tuxedo, where it looked like he was going to toast the bride and groom.
But as soon as he got behind one of the band’s microphones, Trump suddenly shifted into a very political gear, as if he were back on the campaign trail.
Donald Trump was supposed to toast a wedding at his country club, but he ended up talking about losing the 2020 election and the border crisis.
The former president was in the spotlight for more than two and a half minutes on the couple’s big day, covering a range of topics including Biden’s shortcomings, foreign policy, China, Iran and the border situation with Mexico.
As at one of his gatherings, he asked the crowd to cheer, “Do you miss me yet?” before finally toasting newlyweds John and Megan Arrigo.
“I get all these splash reports, and they tell me about the border, they tell me about China, they tell me about Iran,” Trump began, picking up the microphone.
‘We were ready to make a deal, they were willing to do anything, they would have done anything. And this man [Biden] go and drop the sanctions and then he says we want to negotiate now.
‘We don’t have any business with the United States now. They don’t want to deal with that stuff. And now China the same. They never treated us like that. What happened a few days ago was horrible. ‘

Trump then doubled down on the trouble at the border, describing it as the “ worst it has ever been ” by saying kids live in “ misery. ”
‘The border is not good. It’s the worst it’s ever been … what happens to the kids, they live in misery. They live like no one has ever seen. There has never been anything like it …
“These things show thousands and thousands of people coming from South America.”
While Trump was on the floor, the band appeared to be getting ready to play for the couple for the first time, but the former president had a few more things to say and seemed more able to debate policy with guests while he further said how the country could not afford illegal immigrants and border blunders.
‘It’s a disaster. From their point of view, it is a humanitarian disaster and it will destroy the country. And frankly, the country cannot afford it.

Rather than talking about the newlyweds, Trump took the opportunity to peek into President Joe Biden’s administration
‘You’re talking enormous sums … Our school systems, our hospital systems. Everything. It’s a tough business. ‘
Before finally turning attention away from himself, Trump felt compelled to ask the public one more time.
“And I just say: do you miss me already?” he asked before the crowd cheered.
But even then, the former president was not ready and managed to file an allegation about electoral fraud, saying that something “ strange ” had happened last November.
“They said they should get 66 million votes, sir, and the election is over. I have 75 million votes, and you saw what happened.
‘At 10.30 pm they suddenly said that that was strange, why are they closing certain places? A lot of things are happening right now. ‘
Finally, after speaking about himself for nearly three minutes, Trump turned attention to the married couple for the first time.
‘It is an honor to be here. It is an honor to have you at Mar-a-Lago. You are a wonderful and beautiful couple, ” Trump said before the clip ended.
An immigrant family who arrived illegally from Mexico across the Rio Grande River lined up at a checkpoint before being detained in a sentry post by border guards in the border town of Roma, Texas on Saturday.
On Saturday night, Donald Trump said he plans to visit the border soon, claiming officials at the border have “ asked me to go. ”
‘A lot of people want me to do that, the Border Patrol and the people at ICE want me to be there and have asked me to go. I feel like I owe them a little bit, ”Trump told Fox News.
‘They are wonderful people who do a fantastic job. It is impossible with what they did to stay in Mexico. Now, by the way, they stay in the United States, stay in and never leave. ‘
He added: ‘Right now, thousands and thousands of people are joining. And millions of people will flow into our country. It will destroy our country. It’s a very, very dangerous situation. ‘
Trump also called the abolition of the Migrant Protection Protocol a “very bad decision” and criticized Biden for reversing his “Stay in Mexico” policy.
‘Millions of people will flow into our country. It is a very dangerous situation. I would like not to be involved. Someone else should. ‘
On Saturday evening, Trump claimed that the United States will soon see “millions of people pouring into our country,” as he called it a “very dangerous situation.”
Trump also praised his relationship with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and condemned Biden for ending it.
“We had a great process with the President of Mexico, a great guy and a friend of mine. It was a strong process. To be honest, they didn’t come to Mexico, ”Trump said.
“By the time we started it, they couldn’t get to Mexico’s southern border because they knew they couldn’t get into the United States.”
Trump also said Mexico had 28,000 soldiers preventing people from entering the United States, before praising its signature border wall.
Trump last visited the border during his final weeks in office when he traveled to Alamo, Texas, to celebrate the completion of more than 450 miles of his border wall.
President Donald Trump takes photos of part of the border wall in San Luis, Arizona in June 2020. Only a fraction of the new wall was ever built along areas where there was no barrier before.
Since Biden’s inauguration, the United States has seen an unprecedented wave of migrants at the border as the number of unaccompanied children is on track to exceed the number as of May 2019.
U.S. border agents carried out 100,441 arrests or expulsions of migrants at the border with Mexico in February – the highest monthly total since a 2019 border crisis, U.S. Customs and Border Protection recently said.
President Joe Biden claimed on Wednesday that a “wave” of migrants began on the southern border during the Trump administration.
Biden also blamed Trump for scrapping a $ 700 million foreign aid program that would have prevented the migration wave by strengthening the economies of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala.
