Trump slams Biden for squalid border crisis during Mar-a-Lago reception asking do you miss me yet

Former President Donald Trump took to the dance floor of his Mar-a-Lago country club which was hosting a wedding reception to bemoan his election loss and rail against President Biden, China, Iran and the current crisis at the southern border, before finally wishing the happy couple well.

Trump appeared at the reception dressed in a tuxedo where it appeared as though he was going to toast the bride and groom.

But no sooner had he got behind one of the band's microphones, Trump suddenly shifted gear turned all political, as if he were back on the campaign trail. 

Donald Trump was set to make a toast at a wedding being held at his country club but ended up talking about losing the 2020 election and the border crisis 

The former president hogged the limelight on the couple's big day for more than two-and-a-half minutes covering a range of topics including Biden's shortcomings, foreign policy, China, Iran and the border situation with Mexico. 

Much like one of his rallies, he then asked the crowd to cheers, 'Do you miss me yet?' before eventually toasting the newlyweds John and Megan Arrigo.    

'I get all these splash reports, and they're telling me about the border, they're telling me about China, they're telling me about Iran,' Trump began as he grabbed the mic.

'We were ready to make a deal, they were ready to do anything, they would have done anything. And this guy [Biden] goes and drops the sanctions and then he says we'd like to negotiate now.

'We're not dealing with the United States now. They don't want to deal with that stuff. And now China the same thing. They never treated us that way. What happened a few days ago was terrible.'

Trump then doubled down on the issues at the border and described it as the 'worst it has ever been' saying children are living in 'squalor'.

'The border is not good. It's the worst that it has ever been ... what's happening to the kids, they're living in squalor. They are living like nobody has ever seen. There's never been anything like this ...

'These things are showing thousands and thousands of people coming up from South America.'

All the while Trump was speaking, the band appeared to be getting ready to play for the couple's first, but the former president had a few more things to say and seemed better placed to debate policy with guests as he went on to state how country could not afford illegal immigrants and border blunders.

'It's a disaster. It's a humanitarian disaster from their standpoint and it's going to destroy the country. And frankly, the country can't afford it.

The wedding toast felt more like one of Trump's traditional campaign speeches

Instead of talking about the newlyweds, Trump used the occasion to take a dig at President Joe Biden's administration

'You're talking massive amounts ... Our school systems, our hospital systems. Everything. It's a rough thing.'

Before finally turning attention away from himself, Trump felt compelled to ask the audience once more question.

'And I just say, do you miss me yet?' he asked, before the crowd cheered.

But even then the former president was not finished and managed to slip in a claim about election fraud saying a 'strange thing' happened last November.

'They said get 66 million votes, sir, and the election is over. I got 75 million votes, and you saw what happened.

'At 10.30pm in the evening, all of a sudden, they said that's a strange thing, why are they closing up certain places. There's a lot of things happening right now.'

Finally, after almost three minutes of Trump talking about himself, he turned the attention to the married couple for the first time.

'It's an honor to be here. It's an honor to have you at Mar-a-Lago. You are a great and beautiful couple,' Trump said before the clip came to an end.
