President-elect Donald Trump made sure not to forget his enemies in a tweet wishing everyone a happy New Year’s Eve.

Trump tweeted 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 had much to reflect upon on the last day of 2016 as his enemies in both the Democratic and Republican parties first predicted he wouldn’t be able to secure the presidential nomination.

No presidential candidate has ever relied so heavily on social media to relay messages to supporters and voters, and Trump has continued to utilize Twitter on a regular basis as president-elect to comment on the news of the day.

Despite suggestions that Trump refrain from or reduce his use of social media as president, his incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, has already indicated that Trump will continue to conduct social media business as usual after his inauguration.

Spicer said Trump will use “various outlets to continue the conversation.”

“Look, I get it, we’re not going to win a battle whether The New York Times is going to ever give us a fair shake or not,” Spicer said. “But we recognize that there’s, you know, a few thousand readers or so left that still look at The New York Times, and so it’s worth, probably, talking to them,” Spicer said.
