Trump wished his 'many enemies' who 'lost so badly' a happy New Year


President-elect Donald Trump took the time to wish his "many enemies" a happy New Year on Saturday morning.

"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!" Trump tweeted.

But Trump isn't the only one calling out haters in New Year's greetings.

Russian President Vladimir Putin congratulated Trump, instead of President Obama, in his annual New Year's greetings to foreign governments.

Putin said that he hopes Russia and the United States, "will be able to take real steps to restore the mechanisms of bilateral cooperation in various areas and take their interaction in the international arena to a whole new level," after Trump is sworn in on Jan. 20.

Putin vowed not to expel American diplomats in response to U.S. sanctions

Friday Putin said he would not deport 35 American diplomats in Russia in response to the United States' sanctions on Russia, according to CNN.

Instead, he vowed to take steps to restore Russian-U.S. relations during the incoming Trump administration.

"It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner," Putin said in a statement.

Trump applauded the move, saying Putin was "very smart."
