Stephen Miller, a top aide to President Donald Trump, married Katie Waldman, Vice President Mike Pence’s spokeswoman, in a wedding on Sunday evening at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C.
The president made an appearance the event at his hotel, which is located a few blocks from the White House.
Miller has largely led Trump’s efforts to crack down on legal and illegal immigration to the United States. He is also a frequent speech writer for the president.
The Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan was among those who objected to the wedding being held at a Trump property. Critics of the president have often said that his wealth creates potential conflicts of interest.
Many liberals directed their outrage at The New York Times for writing up the event without calling Miller an “white nationalist.”
Christian Michael Exoo, an anti-fascist activist known for doxxing his political opponents under the pseudonym AntiFash Gordon, accused the newspaper of “journalist malpractice.”
Exoo suggested the Times report on Miller’s wedding should have been headlined “NICE DAY FOR A WHITES-ONLY WEDDING.”
On Thursday, Democrats in the House and Senate introduced a joint resolution demanding Miller resign for having “advocated racist and white supremacist ideology in our nation.”
