Trump Is Officially A Floridian After Address Change 

President Donald Trump, born and raised in New York City, announced Thursday on Twitter that he has changed his primary residence to Florida, a move that some think could benefit his re-election campaign. 

“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,” the president tweeted late Thursday night. 

“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!”

The president made it clear that his new home is in Palm Beach County, Florida, and he’ll be a “bona fide resident of the State of Florida residing at” his Mar-a-Lago Club. 

The New York Times was the first to publish the president’s change of address, citing court documents, as his address changed from Trump Tower in New York City to Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.

“If I maintain another place or places of abode in some other state or states, I hereby declare that my above-described residence and abode in the State of Florida constitutes my predominant and principal home, and I intend to continue it permanently as such,” President Trump said in court documents. 

The filing also specifies the president’s “other places of abode” as the White House and his other private golf clubs across the country. 

Bloomberg considers the president’s motivation behind the change to be related to his tax overhaul plan: 

“If motivated by tax considerations, it would bolster a point that his political foes have been making for months: His tax overhaul is hurting Democratic-led, high-tax states by prompting the wealthiest residents to move elsewhere.” 

As soon as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo found out about the president’s address change, he tweeted: “Good riddance. It’s not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway… He’s all yours, Florida.”

Shortly after, Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused President Trump of changing his address so he can shield his tax returns from New York officials. 

“Donald Trump doesn’t want the state of New York to see his taxes—I wonder why,” Warren tweeted. “Let’s call this out for what it is: Corruption, plain and simple. Under my anti-corruption plan, all presidential candidates would be required to release their tax returns.”

While there could be several causes for the address change of primary residence, one significant reason could be due to Florida is a mecca for the ultra-wealthy as there is no income tax or an inheritance tax in the state.
