President-elect Donald Trump is putting the “dip” in diplomacy, if his New Year’s Eve tweet is any indication.

The Donald has decided to ring in the New Year with a heartfelt tweet wishing good tidings to all.

Just kidding! That would have been the respectful thing for the soon-to-be leader of the free world to do. Instead, he posted a bitter pill. 

Most politicians are savvy enough to just issue a blanket “Happy New Year” without calling out the haters.

Even Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who threatened to throw corrupt officials out of a plane earlier this year, found a way to simply wish people “Happy New Year” without any passive-aggressive digs.

The first line of Duterte’s tweet below roughly translates as: 

“Happy New Year to all of you, from me, my family and servants in the government.”

 

Meanwhile, Trump’s twisted tweet ― posted at 5:17 a.m. ― sent a message that he will not be letting go of 2016’s slights for the greater goal of running the country in 2017.

At least that’s how it was interpreted by many.
