"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.

The president canceled his trip to his Mar-a-Lago 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.

‘Fortnite’ Has a New Year’s Eve Event Happening and Everyone’s Invited
Some games, like Fire Emblem Heroes and, in this case, Fortnite , are celebrating through special in-game events. Others speculated that it was a test for the event or a scheduling error on developer Epic's part.

The phrase was used by Mr Trump throughout his presidential campaign.

He fired off an all-caps tweet wishing a happy New Year to everyone, "including the haters and the fake news media".

Trump showed no signs of backing down on Tuesday, however, with another tweet following his New Year wishes.
