Former President Donald Trump recently toasted his future daughter-in-law, Kimberly Guilfoyle at her birthday party with a speech that turned into a rant about illegal immigration before hitting the dance floor. Around 400 guests attended the event in Jupiter, Florida, but Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were nowhere to be seen.
A source told Page Six the former president’s daughter and son-in-law were invited, but had a previous family commitment – their niece’s bat mitzvah. Few celebrities were present at the celebration, with most of the attendees potential donors and neighbors.
Trump’s long-winded speech saw him praise Guilfoyle as he spoke of his excitement of welcoming her into the family when son, Don Jr., finally marries her. He thanked her for help with his campaign describing her as a ‘terrific addition’ while calling her and Don Jr. a ‘wonderful couple.’
Guilfoyle was seen smiling next to her future father-in-law as he took the spotlight in front of her party guests. He then made his way to the dance floor and busted out a few moves before leaving the party before 10 p.m.
”The crowd was not celeb-studded,” the source told Page Six of the party. ”Trump rarely leaves Mar-a-Lago, so it was unusual to see him out in Jupiter . . . He arrived at 8 p.m. and left before 10 p.m. The crowd looked like some neighbors and a lot of potential donors. There were no tickets, but it felt like Kimberly would be calling the guests later for contributions, LOL.”
The absence of celeb guests was noticed, as well as no shows: Ivanka and Jared.
”They were invited to Kimberly’s birthday party and were so sad to miss it. Their niece’s bat mitzvah was Thursday evening and it had been planned a long time ago,” the source said.
The source also said that Trump was dancing the night away and that he ‘gave a big, long speech praising Kimberly and saying, ‘I look forward to officially welcoming Kimberly into the family when Don [Jr.] marries her . . . we all love her.”
