Donald Trump: US alert to possible human rights violations in Iran

President Donald Trump predicted a "fantastic 2018" as he arrived at Mar-a-Lago on Sunday night for a pricey New Year's Eve party with hundreds of his supporters.

Trump's celebration with the public comes in the wake of recent reports from White House aides fearing that Mar-a-Lago guests try to influence the president.

Earlier in the day, Trump closed 2017 with an auto-tribute video in which he addressed what he considers his most important achievements and the rhetoric of his first year in the presidency.

Through Sunday, Trump had spent almost 10 percent of his presidency at or near Mar-a-Lago.

Funk told CNN, "He wanted to play good golf and we wanted to watch him play good golf".

Trump says on Twitter Monday: "Iran is failing at every level despite the awful deal made with them by the Obama Administration".

Mr Trump flew to his Florida resort on Air Force One a week ago, and his days since have tended to follow the same routine.

President Donald Trump is offering a New Year's Eve message, saying, "What a year it's been, and we're just getting started".

Besides the daily golf outings, Mr Trump has left Mar-a-Lago on two other occasions - for a Christmas Eve mass and for a visit to a local fire station.

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 U.S. visas.

Since his arrival at the White House, Trump has made frequent visits to his properties.

US President Donald Trump has accused Pakistan of lying and deceiving the US while receiving billions of dollars in foreign aid. "2018 will be a great year for America!"

Trump says Iran is "failing at every level", and he is voicing his support for the protesters there. Trump tweeted from Mar-a-Lago about an hour before heading to the golf course. "The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!"

The President also "underscored the importance of Governor Scott's leadership in Florida, and the two indicated that they look forward to working together in the New Year".
