Trump Changes Residences To The Sunshine State

Shelby Talcott on October 31, 2019

President Donald Trump, a lifelong New Yorker, changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Florida, court documents show.

Trump has been battling against disclosing his tax records to Manhattan district attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr., a Democrat, filing a lawsuit to combat a subpoena aimed at ordering the president to disclose tax records, and changing his residence will not affect the case, The New York Times reported. Trump changed his residence in late September, the court documents show.

The president tweeted about changing residences Thursday evening, noting that high taxes and being treated “very badly by political leaders” in the state caused him to become a Floridian.

“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!” Trump added.

First lady Melania Trump also filled out documents to change her permanent residence to Florida, The NYT reported, citing court filings. The family filled out a “declaration of domicile” stating that their new permanent residence will be the Mar-a-Lago Club, Trump’s resort.

The president has spent 99 days at his Florida resort and 20 days at Trump Tower in New York, NBC News reported. His New York residence apparently posed challenges for the Secret Service.

“Good riddance. It’s not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway. He’s all yours, Florida,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said when he heard the news, according to The NYT.

By changing his residence to Florida, Trump might be able to avoid New York State’s high tax rates, as the Sunshine State doesn’t have a state income tax or inheritance tax. It’s not clear exactly how much money the president could save, but New York imposes a top estate tax rate of 16% for any estate costing over $10.1 million, The NYT reported.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

  • Trump golfing? You do know he is the President of the USA. Remember obummer golfing while New Orleans drowned. It seems it's OK for obummer, but not for Trump. He does have 25 Generals working for him. I don't think it was a absolute requirement for him to be there.

  • WELL SAID, BLUE SCISSORS!! CA IS SUCKING THE NATION DRY!!

    THE VOTERS OF CA VOTED TO INCREASE GAS TAXES IN ORDER TO FIX THE ROADS - GOVERNOR GAVIN NEWSOME IS CHANGING THE ROAD FIXING TO RAILWAY FIXING.....

    ALL TAXES GO TOWARD THE NON-EXISTENT / HIGH SPEED RAILROAD SO SENATOR FEINSTEIN'S HUSBAND CAN BRING HOME SOME BACON !

    AND WHEN WE RUN OUT OF $$$$ IN CA, WE GRAB IT FROM THE FEDS - THAT MEANS ALL YOU TAXPAYERS ACROSS THE LAND..... RESIST!!

  • I think that this is a very smart move by President Trump. He, like so many other New Yorkers, are abandoning the super high taxes and poor treatment of income earners, so they move south. Florida has captured many New Yorkers who got fed up with New York. Even though Gov Cuomo says that Trump won't be missed, he is such a liar. Yes, New York will miss Donald Trump, as well as so many other millionaires and billionaires who I'm sure have left as well as many other middle class folks. Adios New York.

  • “Good riddance...” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.

    I'm betting that will be exactly what is said by the majority of the citizens once Cuomo and the other dems in NY state are no longer in office.

  • Trump has learned a lot and has always been keen on what is going on and most of all no socialism, We do not need more burden from Big Government. None of this would affect them other than line their pockets. Hope these young kids understand they, the Democrats want their future, like the devil wanting your soul and we sure have witnessed that abuse in the basement of the Democrats.

  • Just because the man chooses to keep his rax returns private (why should we care anyway?) doesn;t mean he doesn;t pay them!!
