Trump Starts New Year With Round Of Golf, Foreign Policy Problems

Trump's vacation: golf, tweets and phone calls

On the first day of 2018, the White House released this video looking back on the first year of Donald Trump's Presidency.

However, on the final day of the year, when the president was met by reporters and cameras at his Mar-a-Lago home, the two parties had an uncharacteristically pleasant exchange.

Also, in a series of tweets Sunday, Trump expressed support for the Iran protests, bashed the Democrats, expressed his condolences over the killing of one deputy and injuring of four others near Denver, and posted a video recapping his first year in office.

"We're going to have a great year". He's been playing golf at one of his nearby golf courses, and on Friday invited about 60 members of the Coast Guard to join him.

"These people are putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into Donald Trump's pockets", Dean said of the wealthy party guests.

Mr. Trump had lunch with Florida Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday.

Trump visits the club regularly and White House aides told The Washington Post on Saturday that Mar-a-Lago's members try to take advantage of the president while he is away from the protection of the West Wing, offering their opinions on policy and of his presidency. The president has spent almost one-third of his presidency at a Trump property, the Wall Street Journal reported in December, though a lawsuit alleging that Trump's business interests violated the Foreign Emoluments Clause in the U.S. Constitution was recently dismissed.

Suter helps Wild down Blackhawks
Schmaltz scored his second of the game, picking up Sharp's rebound to beat Condon high and Rutta made it 6-2 with a one-timer. Panik's goal preceded a parade of points from Kane, who had four assists during a five-goal second period.

Mr. Trump has encouraged Scott to challenge Sen.

Since his arrival at the White House, Trump has made frequent visits to his properties.

Trump had the 2018 elections in mind early Sunday. He's already sent his first tweets of the New Year, criticizing the governments of Iran and Pakistan.

Separately, Trump tweeted: " Iran is failing at every level despite the awful deal made with them by the Obama Administration.

"The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!" he added.

He later offered another Twitter message, loaded with his signature bombast: "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".
