Lawmakers, political figures share their New Year’s resolutions for 2018

As lawmakers and other high profile figures in Washington prepare to turn the calendar from 2017 to 2018, many are taking to social media to share their resolutions for the New Year.

President Trump shared a video that recapped images of his first year in office.

“What a year it’s been, and we’re just getting started,” Trump tweeted Sunday. 

He later wished a happy New Year to “all of my friends, supporters, enemies, haters, and even the very dishonest Fake News media”.

President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, tweeted earlier in the week that her New Year’s resolution is to “sleep more,” while sharing an article about the negative health effects of sleep deprivation. Her brother, Donald Trump Jr., also tweeted a happy new year wish, offering a “pre-apology” for the upcoming year.



Lawmakers also took to Twitter, with Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) calling for human rights and equality worldwide, and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) asking followers to “unite, resist, & reclaim” the country.

Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who helped lead an effort to bring a vote on impeachment to the House floor earlier this month, said his resolution is to “defend democracy from bigotry emanating from the presidency.”

After the Cleveland Browns lost its game Sunday to become the second NFL team ever to go 0-16 in a season, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) resolved “to make sure that in 2018, the #Browns win more than the #GOP.”


Not every lawmaker shared their personal resolutions, but many made a point to share “Happy New Years” wishes.
