Donald Trump reminded the nation why he is the least popular first-year president in history by releasing hate-filled message wishing the country a happy new year.
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. 2018 will be a great year for America!

The message above was not fit to come from a president.
Former President Barack Obama’s New Year’s message is what the country should demand from the Commander In Chief:
As we count down to the new year, we get to reflect and prepare for what’s ahead. For all the bad news that seemed to dominate our collective consciousness, there are countless stories from this year that remind us what's best about America.

Trump is unable to do anything but divide people, and appeal to their worst instincts. Obama reminded the nation of what is great about America. Trump used his platform to stomp his feet and rage at enemies real and imagined.
Donald Trump is obsessed with Obama. He is lost in the shadow of the former president, A great president was followed by a weak man who isn’t emotionally or intellectually up to the task of being president.
Trump is lashing out because he is failing, while Obama’s tweet is a reminder that voters will have a chance to begin to right the wrong that is the Trump presidency in less than two years.
Happy New Year, and reminder that each day of Donald Trump’s presidency is one less day that he has in office.
