Former President Donald Trump may put aside the last mid-term election on Saturday as he leads his youngest daughter to the aisle of his Florida mansion.
Tiffany Trump will marry businessman Michael Boulos at her father’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Sunshine State, just days after a mid-term election in which famous Trump-backed candidates such as Dr. Mehmet Oz fared poorly.
Tiffany, 29, was photographed at the Mar-a-Lago wedding rehearsal on Friday as the former president was practicing leading his daughter along the aisle to her fiancé.
Trump shared his thoughts on the wedding his social platform Pravda overnight, writing, “My lovely daughter Tiffany is going to marry in Mar-a-Lago today. She and Michael are a beautiful couple who will be very happy together. A big thank you and congratulations to Tiffany’s mom, Marla, on bringing a really wonderful daughter! “
This position followed many others in which the former president challenged the elections in Arizona and Nevada and claimed, without producing evidence, that the US Senate elections in those states had suffered fraudulent activity.
He also challenged the counting of votes in the Arizona governorate election in which Republican candidate Kari Lake stands behind Democrat Katie Hobbs. Trump backed Lake, and she reiterated his unsubstantiated claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“Idiots and possibly corrupt officials have lost control of the tainted elections in Arizona. MACHINES Broken in the REPUBLIC. Trump wrote.
On Saturday morning Hobbs had 50.7 percent of the vote to 49.3 percent of Lake’s, with 83 percent of the vote.
The former president also said the Arizona Senate election was a fraud, saying, “They stole an Electron [sic] from Blake Masters. Make the choices again! “
Democrat Senator Mark Kelly won the Arizona Senate race by defeating the Masters and bringing the Democrats one step closer to maintaining control of the House. The Nevada Senate race between Catherine Cortez Masto and Republican challenger Adam Laxalt has not been called up and remains very close.
Newsweek asked the office of former President Trump for comment.
Republicans fared worse than expected in Tuesday’s mid-term, and it is not yet clear which party will control the Senate or the House of Representatives, while some conservatives have blamed Trump.
In Pennsylvania, Trump backed GOP Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz and Hope for Governor Doug Mastriano, both were defeated. He also supported Masters and Lake.
Tiffany Trump’s wedding is ahead of a scheduled major announcement by the former president on November 15. Trump is widely expected to confirm another White House candidacy for 2024, despite some allies urging him to postpone the second round of Georgia’s Senate elections on December 6.
