NEW YORK CITY-Donald Trump has declared himself a Florida resident, saying goodbye to the “Big Apple” where he and his family have lived operated his business for decades.
Trump cited New York’s high tax rate and hostile conditions in the city as his reason for leaving…same as the millions of others who have made the great exodus to the Sunshine State.
“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. “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!”
