US President Donald Trump went from the Daytona 500 on Sunday to attending the wedding of two top members of his administration, senior adviser Stephen Miller and Katie Waldman, press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence.

Shortly after landing at Andrews Air Force Base after a busy day in Florida, the president made a quick stop at the White House. The presidential motorcade then made a five-block jaunt to the Trump International Hotel where the White House announced after press queries that the president was attending “the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Miller.”

Both Miller, 34, and Waldman, 28, are Jewish and descendants of immigrants. Rabbi Aryeh Lightstone, who is a senior adviser to David Friedman, the United States ambassador to Israel, officiated, The New York Times reported.

The combative Miller is one of the White House’s most conservative and influential voices in pushing moves that Trump has taken to curb immigration. He is widely viewed as the driving force behind the administration’s hardest-line immigration policies.

Spectacular and very special wedding tonight with new bride and groom Stephen and Katie Miller! So much fun and still going with ?@realDonaldTrump? having fun and the band is going strong!

Waldman served as a spokesperson for the US Department of Homeland Security, where she defended the policy of separating families of migrants, before moving to the vice president’s office.

The press pool was held outside of the hotel during Sunday’s festivities. Trump spent more than two hours at the event.

  1. I did some googling to learn a little more about Miller’s new wife Katie Waldman. I was shocked to see the twitter comments about her regarding her choice for a husband. Miller is loathsome to many for his hard line on Imigration (God love him for that) and she is constantly insulted for marrying a “scumbag” like Miller. What a smear jopb on this lovely accomplished woman.

  2. Hey, Jews are even marrying into the Brit royal family! Kitty Spencer, Princess Diana’s neice and the daughter of her brother, Lord Spencer, is marrying her boss, a Jewish fashion designer, and is converting to Judaism in order to marry him. She is a professional model, and boy does she look it. Has her aun’t’s good looks. Read the account of their engagement in the Daily Mail. And get a load of the photo shots of her. Her husband may be a multi-millionaire, and her employer, but he is still a very lucky man.

    Read the whole article. It’s fascinating.

    “Princess Diana’s niece Lady Kitty Spencer, 29, is ‘taking religious instruction’ to convert to Judaism to marry £80million fashion tycoon Michael Lewis, 61, a friend tells The Sunday Times
    Lady Kitty Spencer, 29, is set to wed multi-millionaire tycoon Michael Lewis, 61
    Lewis is 32 years senior to model and 5 years older than her father Earl Spencer
    Is demonstrating her commitment by converting to fiancé’s Jewish faith
    Kitty’s cousin Prince William is future supreme governor of Church of England “

  3. This is Israel Hayom’s headline about Kitty Spencer’s marriage plans.”Princess Diana’s niece, Kitty Spencer, converting to Judaism for marriage
    Lady Kitty Spencer, the niece of the late Princess Diana of Wales, is reportedly converting to Judaism to marry Jewish fashion tycoon Michael Lewis.”
    There are beautiful photos of both Kitty and her late aunt Diana. Notice the resemblance.

  4. The Algemeiner has some interesting background information about the “61-year old business tycoon,” Michael Lewis, who is marrying Princess Diana’s neice Kitty Spencer. Also about Lewis’s father and grandfather. Lewis is said to be the heir of a three-generation “dynasty” of Jewish businessmen in South Africa. He is owner of a “retail clothing outlet” based in South Africa, although he now apparently lives in England. As I mentioned before, Ms. Spencer is converting to Judaism in order to marry him.
