Trump Changes Residence from New York to Florida
President Trump, a born-and-bred New Yorker, announced Thursday that he has changed his permanent residence to Florida because of the way politicians in New York have treated him.
“I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, 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,” the president tweeted.
“I hated having to make this decision, but in the end it will be best for all concerned. As President, I will always be there to help New York and the great people of New York. It will always have a special place in my heart!”
Trump filed for a change of address from Trump Tower in New York City to the location of his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida, where he’s built a residence. First lady Melania Trump has also changed her residence to the same location.
His previous formal place of residence was 721 Fifth Avenue. Trump, raised in the borough of Queens, moved into the skyscraper in midtown Manhattan in 1983.
Trump’s “other places of abode” are 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (the White House) and his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Trump has spent 99 days at his Florida resort since becoming president, while he’s spent only 20 days at Trump Tower.
Trump is due to make an appearance in New York City this weekend to attend an MMA fight at Madison Square Garden. He’s scheduled to spend Saturday night at Trump Tower.
