On Thursday, the United States President Donald Trump has announced that he will change his permanent residence from New York to Palm Beach in Florida, alleged that he had been “treated very badly” in his native city.
President Trump tweets, “My family and I will be making Palm Beach, Florida, our Permanent Residence.”
He continued, “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,” adding that “few have been treated worse.”
As per the report from The New York Times, Donald Trump is a native New Yorker – and his wife Melania filled individual statements of domicile in September changed their primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach.
The New York Times further motioned that the White House officials have refused to say the reason why the US President desired to change his primary residence but referred to a source close to the President as stating it was primarily for tax purposes.
Besides the White House, President Trump’s main residence will now be their Mar-a-Lago Resort, where the US President has spent ninety-nine days since becoming the President of the United States – compared to only twenty-days at his previous primary residence in Trump Tower, reported news source.
President Donald Trump tweets, “I hated having to make this decision, but in the end, it will be best for all concerned.”
He continued, “New York will always have a special place in my heart!”
However, New York not always loved him back: Demonstrations outside Trump Tower are common, and the US President has butted heads multiple times with the city as well as the state.
