PALM BEACH — As he wraps up a holiday stay at Mar-a-Lago, President-elect Donald Trump extended New Year’s wishes via Twitter this morning “to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do.”
His tweet ends in signature Trumpian exclamatory style: “Love!”
Trump plans to ring in 2017 tonight at his Mar-a-Lago Club with Sylvester Stallone and more than 800 others.
Trump’s latest tweet is a reminder that he enjoys winning — and offering barbed magnanimity to those he has defeated.
Less than three weeks away from being inaugurated as America’s 45th president, however, Trump’s latest New Year’s tweet is slightly toned down from his classic New Year’s tweet from two years ago.
With 2014 in its waning hours, Trump looked to 2015 and tweeted: “To EVERYONE, including all haters and losers, HAPPY NEW YEAR. Work hard, be smart and always remember, WINNING TAKES CARE OF EVERYTHING!”
Trump in 2013 and 2014 also wished “haters and losers” a happy Father’s Day, Independence Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving and Memorial Day.
But he has largely retired the phrase since becoming a presidential candidate in 2015.
