President Trump dropped in on the wedding of PJ Mongelli and Nicole Marie Mongelli on Saturday night at the Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey, and enthusiastic guests broke into chants of “USA.”
Fox News reported that the bride and groom are huge fans of the president, had dreamed of him attending their wedding and got engaged at the golf club in 2017. Flags and pro-Trump banners could be seen at the event.
The bride said she’d sent numerous requests to the president in hopes he would attend — and Trump ended up paying two visits to separate wedding events. At the first event, he vowed to show up to the second, and kept his word, as per Fox News.
In the video below, President Trump is introduced to the couple, hugs the bride, and briefly talked with members of the family.
A voice can be heard saying, “I’m the father, I’m the father! Thank you so much!” and President Trump responded, “Great job. You did a good job!”
“Where’s the groom? Handsome — look at his shoulders,” President Trump said. “Nobody’s gonna mess with him.” (Continued Below)
The groom asked President Trump if he could come back for a few minutes later and another person begged, “Please, please, it would mean so much to us.”
“Staten Island is the greatest,” the President said when the groom told him told hundreds of guests from the borough would be attending a party later. “I love it. I’ll see if I can stop by.”
“You’re a class act that you came in here, you’re the best,” another person said. (Continued Below)

This isn’t the first time President Trump has crashed a wedding on one of his properties.
Last summer President Trump surprised wedding couple Gerald Papa and Jenna Buchholtz at the Trump National Golf Club.
In the summer of 2017, Kristen Piatkowski and Tucker Gladhill were several hours into their wedding reception when Secret Service agents started filing into the room, followed soon after by President Trump. The President greeted and posed for pictures with the happy couple, shook hands with guests, and even signed a few MAGA hats.
