President Donald Trump says he will be making Palm Beach, Florida, his permanent residence after he leaves the White House, rather than returning to Trump Tower in New York City.
Trump tweeted late Thursday that he cherished New York. But he added that “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.”
The New York Times reported earlier Thursday that Trump had filed “declaration of domicile” paperwork changing his “predominant and principal home” to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
Trump, who was born in New York, says “it will always have a special place in my heart!”
Seeing the news, both Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio bid President Trump adieu on Twitter.
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out or whatever. https://t.co/bLu88AzKVf

It’s not like @realDonaldTrump paid taxes here anyway…
He’s all yours, Florida. https://t.co/9AX0q1aBkQ
