WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump attended the wedding of senior adviser Stephen Miller on Sunday at Trump International Hotel, according to the White House. Miller married Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary, Katie Waldman.
"The president is at Trump International Hotel for the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Miller," the White House confirmed in a statement sent to reporters Sunday evening.
Miller, a top adviser on immigration policy, is considered a chief architect of some of Trump's hard-line immigration actions, including "zero tolerance."
Waldman was previously a spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security before working in the vice president's office.

Miller came under recent fire by progressive groups and lawmakers after the Southern Poverty Law Center published a report on his emails containing white nationalist talking points. He was called on by multiple Democratic lawmakers to resign from his White House position.
Trump International Hotel, which is blocks from the White House, has been the subject of scrutiny because foreign officials and others with Trump administration business have booked rooms and events there. It has also been at the center of multiple lawsuits related to the Constitution's emoluments clause. The Trump Organization is exploring the sale of the hotel.
Trump attended the wedding for over two hours after returning to Washington from Florida, where he grand marshaled the Daytona 500 race earlier Sunday.
