The calendar turned and the dawn of the new year was upon us. With people pouring their wishes onto the social media, there was one person who lost no time in making his stand absolutely clear.
This man was none other than President-Elect, Donald Trump.
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. Love!

In reply against Trump’s childish New Year tweet was Obama’s humble message for his citizens. In a video message posted on Facebook, Obama said:
“It’s been the privilege of my life to serve as your President. And as I prepare to take on the even more important role of citizen, know that I will be there with you every step of the way to ensure that this country forever strives to live up to the incredible promise of our founding—that all of us are created equal, and all of us deserve every chance to live out our dreams. And from the Obama family to yours—have a happy and blessed 2017.”
