US President Donald Trump declared Thursday he will alter his permanent residence from New York to Palm Beach, Florida, claiming he was”treated quite poorly” in his native town.
“I cherish New York, along with the folks of New York, and always will, but sadly, in spite of the fact that I spend countless dollars in town, country and local taxes every year, I have been treated quite badly by the leaders of the state and city,” he wrote, adding that”couple have been treated .”
According to a report by The New York Times,” Trump — who’s a native New Yorker — along with also his wife Melania filed human declarations of domicile in September shifting their main home from Manhattan into Palm Beach.
The New York Times also wrote that White House officials declined to say why Trump shifted his main home but mentioned a source near the president saying it had been primarily for taxation purposes.
Aside from the White House, the Trumps’ most important home will be their Mar-a-Lago hotel, in which Trump has spent 99 days since becoming president compared to only 20 in his preceding main house in Trump Tower, according to the Times.
“I hated having to make this choice, however, in the long run, it’ll be best for all concerned,” Trump tweeted.
However, New York hasn’t always adored Trump back: Demonstrations out Trump Tower are all common, and Trump has butted heads with town and state multiple occasions.
The latest example was at the beginning of the month, when a national judge for the Southern District of New York dismissed the president’s bid to obstruct access for years of his private and corporate tax returns.
New York leadership seemed to concur that Trump had made the correct phone, together with Governor Andrew Cuomo tweeting, “Good riddance.”
“It is similar to @realDonaldTrump paid taxes anyway,” he wrote.
“He is your Florida.”
