(Newser) – Donald Trump has decided to finish off his momentous 2016 by taunting his enemies. "Happy New Year 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," the president-elect tweeted early Saturday. "Love!" The Hill notes that Trump has long made a habit of using dates like New Year, Thanksgiving, and even 9/11 to send messages to those he calls "haters and losers." Politico reports that Trump will welcome 2017 at a $525-a-head party at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. A Trump spokesman says guests at the sold-out event will include Sylvester Stallone and Quincy Jones. (On Friday, Trump praised Vladimir Putin as "very smart.")
