There are some world leaders out there who don’t like President Trump. That makes sense. He represents outsiders and his election was a rebuke to the ruling class. You have to imagine that a lot of world leaders are a little jealous of his success as well. With no political experience, he showed up on on the scene and won the presidential election. That’s a big deal that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.
President Obama was a guy who loved being popular. He loved going on television shows and palling around with late night talk show hosts. He loved that kind of stuff. As you probably remember, a lot of world leaders loved President Obama because why wouldn’t they? He gave them everything they wanted. One of Obama’s buddies during his time in the White House was Prince Harry. Harry is getting married soon and a lot of people have been speculating on whether or not Trump and Obama will get invites.
We know a little more about that now. Sounds like Obama is getting the invite and Trump isn’t.
From Western Journal:
Though the former president is good friends with Prince Harry, the royal family was reportedly worried about upsetting President Donald Trump by inviting his predecessor, but not the current president himself.
It is unlikely that Trump, who Markle has publicly criticized in the past, is going to be invited to the wedding.
The U.K. Daily Star, however, reported Monday that the royal couple has decided to disregard their advisers and invite Obama, along with his wife, Michelle.
Prince Harry and Markle “want to do things their own way,” a royal source told The Star. “They are inviting their own friends, and not on the advice of aides.”
From USA Today:
Any bride and groom run into parental interference in their guest list, whether it’s adding random cousins or forgotten neighbors. Yet Harry and Markle are enduring this phenomenon at a cosmic level due to the royal expectations that come along with being a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.
At least Harry and Markle won’t face the 3,500 guests that his parents, Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer, welcomed to their 1981 “wedding of the century” in St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. They also avoided the warehouse-sized Westminster Abbey, where Harry’s brother Prince William and Kate Middleton packed in 1,900 guests for a 2011 royal wedding extravaganza televised around the world.
Their wedding venue, the 15th-century St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, holds a mere 800 guests. Even so, it’s going to be tough to cut that list.
The British royals’ close relatives alone number over 50 — and this time Princess Eugenie gets to bring a plus-one, fiance Jack Brooksbank. Harry also won’t forget non-royals like Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, her husband James Mathews, and brother James Middleton.
Does anyone really think that Trump cares about this?
Obama can go to all the weddings he wants and pal around with all the world leaders he wants. Trump has more important things to do. Like cleaning up Obama’s mess.
