President Donald Trump, in an all-caps tweet Tuesday, wished everyone a Happy New Year, including the “haters and the fake news media.”
“HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA!” he said. “2019 WILL BE A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THOSE NOT SUFFERING FROM TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. JUST CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE, GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING FOR OUR COUNTRY!”
President Trump’s early morning Tweet came after New Year’s Eve post that included a video in which he said he is still in Washington “fighting for you” during the protracted stalemate on the government shutdown over his call for $5-B in border Wall funding.
In his series of other New Year’s Eve Tweets, President Trump insisted Mexico will pay for the wall; Democrats will give anything but funding for the Wall; and walls work.
The President canceled his trip to his estate in Florida for the holidays after lawmakers were not able to agree on border security funding, instead opting to remain at the White House.
