‘Good Riddance, He’s All Yours, Florida’: New York Gov. Responds To Trump Leaving NY
President Donald Trump on Thursday complained that New York leaders have treated him “very badly” and, for that reason, he is changing his permanent residence to Palm Beach, Florida.
Trump has feuded with New York authorities after they launched an investigation into his personal finances and business, including a lawsuit seeking his long-concealed tax returns.
In a series of tweets, Trump on Thursday wrote on that the Empire State would “always have a special place” in his heart, while adding that “few have been treated worse” by its leadership despite paying “millions” in taxes.
It was reported earlier Friday that Trump had officially filed to change his permanent address. New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) responded by tweeting: “Good riddance.”
The news is also welcomed by local officials in Manhattan, who would otherwise be forced to deal with increased traffic and security concerns surrounding Trump’s future stays at his New York residence during and after his White House tenure.
….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!
