Washington, Nov 1: US President Donald Trump, the lifelong New Yorker, has officially become a Florida resident.
President Trump changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Mar-a-Lago, The Independent reported. In late September, the US President in paperwork filed with the Palm Beach County clerk and comptroller declared, 'I am, at the time of making this declaration, a bonafide resident of the State of Florida.'
In a series of tweets on Thursday evening, Mr Trump said, '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.'
The paperwork lists 1100 South Ocean Blvd. as the president’s new home — Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. In the declaration, he referred to Trump Tower, his home since early 1980s, in the past tense: 'I formerly resided at 721 Fifth Avenue.'
On learning about Mr Trump's decision, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, not mincing words, said, 'Good riddance. It's not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway." He's all yours, Florida." Corey Johnson, New York’s city council speaker, agreed: 'GOOD RIDDANCE!!.'
'Don't let the door hit you on the way out or whatever,' Mayor Bill de Blasio quipped. (UNI)
