President Trump, a native New Yorker, announced Thursday that he has changed his permanent residence in Palm Beach, Fla. because of the way the politicians in New York City and the state treated him.

“I guess, New York, and the people in New York, and will always be so, but unfortunately, in spite of the fact that I have to pay millions of dollars in city, state, and local taxes every year, I was very badly treated by the political leadership of the city and the state. Some were treated worse,” the President tweeted.

“I hated to make this decision, but in the end it will be best for all involved. As President, I will always be there to help, New York, and the great people in New York. It will always have a special place in my heart!”

The New York Times originally, the court received the documents for the Trump of the change of address of Trump Tower in New York City, the location of his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, where he built a residence. The First lady, Melania Trump, also changes their residence to the same place in an identical document.

“If I maintain another place or places of residence in any other state or States, I hereby declare that my above residence and place of abode in Florida constitutes my predominant and principal home, and I intend to continue it permanently as such,” the trump card-the file to read.


“I have said earlier resided at 721 Fifth Avenue,” the document. Trump grew up in Queens, moved into the skyscraper in midtown Manhattan, in the year 1983.

The document lists Trump the “other places of abode” than 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, aka the White house, and his private golf club in Bedminster, N. J.

Trump has spent 99 days in his resort in Florida, since he was President, while he only spent 20 days in Trump Tower, according to NBC News.


In reaction to Trump, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo Good riddance tweeted: “. It is not so, @realDonaldTrump taxes paid here anyway… It’s all sell, Florida.”

Trump is making an appearance in New York City this weekend to participate in a MMA fight in Madison Square Garden. He is to spend Saturday night in the Trump Tower.

While Trump said to his change of residence due to the poor treatment by New York officials, some have speculated he might. so for tax purposes Florida does not have a state income tax or inheritance tax and has long been a haven for wealthy former New Yorker.

In August, Heritage Foundation chief economist Steve Moore appeared on The “Daily Briefing” to say that New Yorkers can escape to Florida for tax purposes, the “largest economic-history” in the country.


He said there are four so-called “states-of-the-apocalypse” – New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Illinois, from where residents are fleeing in droves due to high taxes and the state budget law.

Moore said, the States to benefit most of this population movement are Florida, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and North Carolina.
