President Trump, who was born and raised in New York, announced on Twitter Thursday evening that he and his family have changed their permanent residency status to Florida. 

He said he’s come to love living at the White House and hopes to stay throughout a second term, but Palm Beach, Florida, where his Mar-a-Lago Club is located, will become his new home. 

“1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House, is the place I have come to love and will stay for, hopefully, another 5 years as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, but my family and I will be making Palm Beach, Florida, our Permanent Residence,” he said. 

While he said he “cherishes” New York, his decision stemmed from the fact that he has been treated very poorly by city and state political leaders, despite paying a tremendous amount in taxes. 

“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. 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!”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio welcomed the news. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, meanwhile, accused Trump of making the move so he could hide tax information from New York authorities.
