Former President Donald Trump crashed a wedding at his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, on Saturday, where he gave a speech ripping his successor, President Joe Biden, over China, Iran, and the Southwest border.
Trump made an unexpected appearance at the wedding of John and Megan Arrigo on Saturday, according to a video obtained by TMZ that shows him wearing a tuxedo and standing in front of the wedding band while making his speech.
"You know, I just got, I turned off the news, I get all these flash reports, and they’re telling me about the border, they’re telling me about China, they’re telling me about Iran – how’re we doing with Iran, how do you like that?
He added, "Boy, they were ready to make a deal, they would have done anything, they would have done anything, and this guy goes and drops the sanctions and then he says, ‘We’d love to negotiate now,’ [Iran says], ‘We’re not dealing with the United States at all,’ Oh, well, they don’t want to deal with us.
"And China, the same thing, they never treated us that way, right?"
Trump went on to say that "You saw what happened a few days ago, was terrible, and uh, the border is not good, the border is the worst anybody’s ever seen it, and what you see now, multiply it times 10." He added that someone named "Jim" is "the only one I know who would handle the border tougher than me."
The former president went on to say, "What’s happening to the kids, they’re living in squalor, they are living like nobody has ever seen anybody, there’s never been anything like what’s, and you’re gonna have hundreds, and you have it now, they have the airplane photos, the shots, and they call ’em shots, and these things are showing thousands and thousands of people coming up from South America and it’s gonna be, it’s just uh, look, it’s a disaster.
"It’s a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint," he continued, "and it’s gonna destroy the country, and frankly, the country can’t afford it because you’re talking about massive, just incredibly massive amounts. Our school systems, our hospital systems, everything.
"So it’s a rough thing, and I just say, ‘Do you miss me yet?’"
Trump went on to gloat that his campaign received "75 million votes" in 2020. Trump officially won 74.3 million votes in the 2020 presidential election, while Biden received 81.3 million.
"Nobody’s ever gotten that," Trump said, adding that his advisors said he would be safe if he surpassed 66 million votes, just more than Hillary Clinton received in 2016.
"They said, 'Get 66 million votes, sir and the election’s over.' We got 75 million and they said … but you know, you saw what happened, 10:30 in the evening, all of a sudden I said, 'That’s a strange thing, why are they closing up certain places, right?'
"Now, a lot of things happening right now. I just wanted to say, it’s an honor to be here, it’s an honor to have you at Mar-a-Lago, you are a great and beautiful couple … have fun."
