"HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE", Trump tweeted at 8 am in all caps, "INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA!"

Suggesting that the new year would be "a fantastic year for those not suffering from Trump derangement syndrome", Trump urged everyone to "just calm down and enjoy the ride", adding that "great things are happening for our country!"

The president is now locked in a stalemate with congressional Democrats over a partial government shutdown. Incoming House speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer unveiled the outline of a bill to end the partial government shutdown as Democrats take control of the House this week.
