However, on the final day of the year, when the president was met by reporters and cameras at his Mar-a-Lago home, the two parties had an uncharacteristically pleasant exchange.

As he walked into the party, the president, accompanied by First Lady Melania Trump and their son Barron, touted some of the economic successes of his first year in office and promised a "fantastic" 2018. Trump said: "Why would smart voters want to put Democrats in Congress in 2018 Election when their policies will totally kill the great wealth created during the months since the Election".

On Friday, Mr Trump invited about 60 members of the US Coast Guard to play golf at his club.

'The president continues to find ways to profit from public office, by exploiting the fact that there are people who will pay to spend time with him and to be seen with him, ' according to Kathleen Clark, who is a government ethics expert at the Washington University School of Law.

The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday that the private helicopter bearing the Trump logo had sat on the helipad for over a week.

The White House goes to great efforts to prevent the media from viewing Trump on the golf course but CNN managed to get a peek at the president one day driving a golf cart.

Donald Trump, Melania Trump and their son Barron arrive at Mar-a-Lago resort.

While some Iranians have shared Mr Trump's tweets, many there distrust him as he has refused to recertify the nuclear deal and because his travel bans have blocked Iranians from getting USA visas.

Trump pledged in October to speed up Lake Okeechobee dike repairs, a top Scott priority, though the White House has not provided a specific timetable or attached a dollar figure to the pledge.

Trump says Iran is "failing at every level", and he is voicing his support for the protesters there.

President Donald Trump is getting in one last round of golf before coming back to D.C. Monday evening.

Trump has encouraged Scott to challenge U.S. Sen.

Bidding farewell to 2017 with a lavish party at his private club, President Donald Trump predicted 2018 will be a "tremendous year".
