President Trump Tweeted out New Year’s greetings on Sunday, writing that the good tidings extended to his backers, but also to “enemies, haters” and “Fake News Media.”
“As our Country rapidly grows stronger and smarter, I want to wish all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News Media, a Happy and Healthy New Year. 2018 will be a great year for America!,” Trump, who’s spending the holidays at his exclusive resort Mar-a-Lago in Florida, .
The Sunday afternoon Tweet was another in a series of messages in which Trump touted the achievements of his administration, including the $1.5 trillion tax reform bill he signed before Christmas, and looked ahead to the 2018 midterm election.
”Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election. People are much better off now not to mention ISIS, VA, Judges, Strong Border, 2nd A, Tax Cuts & more?,” .
He also found time to take a shot at “Crooked Hillary” Clinton, writing that had she won the 2016 presidential election, Americans wouldn’t have enjoyed the stock market gains during his first year in office.
”If the Dems (Crooked Hillary) got elected, your stocks would be down 50% from values on Election Day. Now they have a great future – and just beginning!,” .
Wall Street powered through 2017, with indexes notching their best years since 2013.
Dow Jones was up 25 percent and passed 24,000 at the end of November.
Nasdaq hit 28 percent and the S&P 500 ended 19 percent higher.
The president and his family will ring in the new year at the West Palm Beach resort where ticket prices for Sunday’s soiree have hit $750.
But it won’t be all fun, the White House said the president will be monitoring security efforts in place across the country, including in frigid Times Square.
“The president has been briefed on security measures that are being taken by federal, state and local authorities to help ensure a safe and festive New Year’s Eve. We will continue to monitor throughout the night,” spokeswoman Helen Ferre said in a statement.
