Trump is Florida resident now

Monday, 04 Nov, 2019

President Donald Trump - a lifelong New Yorker who was for decades one of the city's most prominent denizens - has changed his permanent residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Florida. Trump revealed he made his decision after being "treated very badly" by NY politicians.

New York, says, "you will always have a special place in my heart".

In a tweet on Thursday, US President Donald Trump announced that he has switched his residence from NY to Palm Beach, Florida.

President Donald Trump recently changed his primary residence from NY, where he made a name for himself in real estate and entertainment, to Florida, where owns a Palm Beach resort that he's dubbed the "Southern White House".

According to the New York Times, since becoming president, Trump has spent 99 days at Mar-a-Lago, as opposed to 20 days at Trump Tower.

"I hated having to make this decision, but in the end, it will be best for all concerned", the president added.

Trump's visit to NY comes just two days after announcing he and his family are switching their permanent residency from NY to Florida, a move that was met with cheers from some prominent Democrats in the state.

But his romance with the American financial and cultural capital soured as his deeply controversial presidency triggered angry protests, including outside Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue.

Trump was the first NY resident elected to the presidency since Franklin Roosevelt, ending a presidential dry spell for a large and otherwise politically influential state.

"New Yorkers are pretty strong-willed", Addo said. New York, on the other hand, has a top estate tax rate of 16 percent.

Under New York State law, if a person spends more than 184 days in the state, the person needs to pay state income taxes.

Donald Trump Jr., Mr. Trump's eldest son, chimed in to slam Mr. Cuomo's economic policies as driving the wealthy out of state.

The paperwork lists 1100 South Ocean Blvd.as the president's new home - Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort. The state Attorney General and the Manhattan District Attorney have launched multiple probes of Trump's businesses, charities, political committees and personal conduct.

With that many new arrivals each year, they could tip the scales in America's largest swing state, where presidential elections are decided by razor-thin margins. "New York has a multipart test that takes in everything from where a taxpayer's family is to where he or she keeps 'items near and dear, ' like family heirlooms", James Barron writes at The New York Times.

"Good riddance", Gov. Andrew Cuomo tweeted.

But the state's auditors might not be so willing to say he's a Florida resident.

Trump returns to New York City on Saturday to cheer on a mixed martial arts fight.

"We don't tolerate divisiveness", he said.
