Trump, moments after holding a news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, “found it impossible to resist dropping in on a nearby wedding reception,” according to CNN. The wedding was that of Falk and Carl Lindner IV, the son of Carl Lindner III, who is the co-CEO of a multibillion-dollar investment firm and who gave money to multiple pro-Trump super-PACs, according to New York Magazine. The bride’s father is Bob Falk, CEO of Healthcare Corp. of Tennessee.
According to CNN, Trump’s briefing about North Korea’s ballistic missile test was the “first emergency foreign policy statement of his presidency.” He did not take questions.
But he did pose for photos with members of the wedding party.
He also grabbed the mic and said a few words about the couple.
“Ladies and gentleman, all I can say is that I know both families very, very well,” Trump said, according to CNN and New York Magazine. “They’ve been members of this club for a long time. They’ve paid me a fortune.”
“I saw them out on the lawn today and I said to the prime minister of Japan, I said, ‘C’mon Shinzo, let’s go over and say hello.’ “
Here are a few photos from the wedding:
