Donald and Melania Trump Had a Rockin' New Year's Eve

US President Donald Trump is set to ring in the new year the same way he has for about two decades - at the lavish party he hosts at his private club at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.

Keith Hernandez is putting 2017 in the books at the party of another guy who spent most of the 1980s making headlines in NY newspapers: President Trump.

Hundreds of guests annually attend the Mar-a-Lago bash, with a four-course meal on offer and a different themes every year, ranging from Las Vegas showgirls and 70s disco.

This year, the party will have a "modern fantasy garden" theme, the Post reported, going against past years' more "garish" decor to opt for something more "muted, sophisticated and fitting for a president". The White House said they discussed hurricane recovery efforts, the need to improve infrastructure "and many other matters important to the people of Florida".

Funk said Trump shot even-par 36 on the front nine and overall surprised Funk, the former Longhorn who helped Texas to the final of the 2016 NCAA Championship before losing a close match in extra holes to Oregon's Sulman Raza.

But tonight President Trump posted a special New Year's Eve message on Twitter looking back at what he considers his greatest hits of 2017.

According to the White House, President Trump spoke about the tax cut bill that he signed into law before the Christmas holiday and "the economic growth it is already unleashing across the country" during the lunch.

Trump tweeted: "The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies & deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools".

Mr. Trump has encouraged Scott to challenge Sen. Trump tweeted from Mar-a-Lago about an hour before heading to the golf course.

Trump supporters said the extra hassle and cost will be worth it.

Trump is expected to return to Washington on New Year's Day.

During an MSNBC segment on Sunday, Dean hammered Trump for hosting a pay-for-access party at his private resort and said it was an inherently corrupt thing to do.
