President Trump celebrated the end of the 2017 at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla, with first lady Melania Trump and son Baron, before kicking off 2018 with angry tweets about Iran and Pakistan.

Though It wasn't immediately clear what prompted the tweets about Pakistan, President Trump reiterated his support for anti-government protesters in Iran, which have since turned violent early Monday as armed protesters attempted to take over police stations and military bases.

The 45th-commander-in-chief predicted a "tremendous year" for 2018, saying the stock market will continue to rise and that companies will come to the U.S. at "a rapid clip." He also touted his 2017 accomplishments, including the recent tax reform, opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, and repealing the individual mandate from the national health care law.

When asked about his reaction to North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un's annual New Years speech, in which he said he had a nuclear button on his desk, Trump responded, "We'll see."

Among others in attendance at the Mar-a-Lago party included senior White House advisers Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Trump's sons Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

The first family is expected to depart Florida at 4 p.m. Monday.
