President Donald Trump is a New Yorker no more. So reports the New York Times, which discovered that back in September the president changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Fla. and more specifically, to Mar-a-Largo Club.
According to the report, both the president and First Lady Melania Trump filed a “declaration of domicile” noting the change.
“If I maintain another place or places of abode in some other state or states, I hereby declare that my above-described residence and abode in the State of Florida constitutes my predominant and principal home, and I intend to continue it permanently as such,” the document filed by Trump reads, according to the Times.
Trump tweeted about the new transition on Thursday evening, noting that while he hopes to be in the White House for the next five years, Palm Beach will be his new permanent residence.
As for New York, he said that he cherishes the state and city but “despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state. Few have been treated worse.”
“I hated having to make this decision, but in the end, it will be best for all concerned,” the president added.
If Trump was looking for sympathy or remorse from the same politicians that he claims have treated him badly, he was looking in all the wrong places, however.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, upon hearing about Trump’s change of residence quipped, “Good riddance.”
“It’s not like [Donald Trump] paid taxes here anyway…He’s all yours, Florida,” Cuomo added.Share :
