Four weddings and one indictment: Trump hearing disrupts New York nuptials
Donald Trump has made a specialty of inviting himself to weddings celebrated on his golf courses or in his luxury hotels, taking advantage of the opportunity to make political speeches and often ignoring the bride and groom.
He showed on Tuesday that habits die hard: his appearance before a New York judge drew a crowd of protesters, journalists and onlookers who disrupted the day of couples who came to formalize their union at the Marriage Bureau New York, across the street.
“I didn’t realize this was where it was happening,” says NBC Peter Don, 30, who came to spend the Monique Beckford Khalia finger ring. “It's fun, but it won't ruin our day.”
“It's our day,” insists Monique, 25.
Jason Mcfarland and Dominic Lamarco had also chosen this date well in advance to get married, but they had not anticipated the media circus that would surround them.
“It is something we will never forget, that's for sure,” comments Jason, 38.
For Dominic, having Donald Trump indicted on his wedding day makes the occasion “even more joyful”.
