Donald Trump ditches press pool to play golf

Donald Trump ditches press pool to play golf

He even included his enemies.

At least, that is how it works for most people.

US President-elect Donald Trump launched a fresh salvo of accusations against the United Nations Wednesday, saying the world body had not lived up to its potential and failed to solve global problems.

Ordinarily, there's nothing especially noteworthy about a Florida resort selling tickets to a New Year's Eve "extravaganza", but the circumstances are obviously very different this year.

Although Trump didn't detail his complaints in his morning broadsides on Twitter, the president-elect has made it clear that it didn't sit well with him when Obama recently boasted that he would have won the election if he'd been running.

Donald Trump is a big name in golf.

Keith Olbermann questioned who really lost the election.

Sanders also took the opportunity to Tweet about minimum wage laws in 2016.

Obama Putin
Wishing them Well

Following those comments, however, Russian President Vladimir Putin said he would hold off on expelling diplomats for now and will wait to see if US attitudes toward Russia change after Donald Trump's inauguration in January.

Hope Hicks, the incoming White House Director of Strategic Communications, told Politico, "The transition is not concerned about the appearance of a conflict".

The party, for which invitations cost up to $575, has attracted criticism regarding potential conflicts of interest and the alleged selling of access to the president-elect and his family. Hundreds of guests gathered in the club's grand ballroom, including action star Sylvester Stallone and romance novel model Fabio.

An aide confirmed that the president-elect had made a "last minute trip" to Trump National Golf Club Jupiter about a half-hour drive from the Mar-a-Lago estate, where the mogul has been spending the holidays.

According to CNN, Vladimir Putin congratulated Donald Trump in his annual New Year's statement.

Ever sceptical of the spooks' finding that the Russians had hacked into Democratic Party and the rival Clinton campaign chief's emails, Trump was not impressed.

Putin hopes that Russian Federation and the United States "acting in a constructive and pragmatic manner, will be able to take real steps to restore the mechanisms of bilateral cooperation in various areas and take their interaction in the worldwide arena to a whole new level". On NYE in 2014, he had a similar tweet ending in "winning takes care of everything".

In 2015, however, he opted for a less confrontational tone than he did this year and in 2014.
