The president said the country is already "off to a very good start" while highlighting some of provisions included in the GOP tax-cut plan, his administration's first major legislative victory.

He touted opening Alaska's remote Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil and natural gas drilling and repealing ObamaCare’s individual mandate, which requires individuals to buy health insurance or face a fine.

"We’re off to a very good start, as you know, with the great tax cuts and ANWR and getting rid of the individual mandate, which is very, very unpopular, as you know," he said.

"But we are going to have a tremendous year. Stock market, I think, is going to continue to go up. Companies are going to continue to come into the country. And they're doing it now, soon to be a record clip," he continued.

The president did not say much when asked about the latest wave of threats by North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un, who said in a new year speech that he possesses nuclear weapons that are capable of striking the mainland U.S.

“We’ll see, we'll see," he told reporters.

High-profile guests at the president's party included his children and various top government officials.
