At the end of last September, according to The New York Times, the president of the united States changed their primary residence from the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan at the club Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.
When he shared the phone video of the incident, Donald Trump Jr. ascribed blame for the show of disrespect to the NYPD to mishandling of the city and state government by Democratic politicians, including Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Senator Chuck Schumer.
In an unconventional presidency with more than its share of surprises, President Donald Trump's decision to move his permanent home from NY to Florida ranks among the most simple, obvious and easy to understand.
Trump has spent the bulk of his time at Trump Tower in NY during the United Nations General Assembly.
An unnamed source told the Times that Trump's decision to move his permanent residence was motivated by tax purposes.
"New York's Finest must be cherished, respected and loved". The state's top estate tax rate - applying to fortunes greater than $10.1 million - is 16 percent.
"Taxes and energy costs are way too high, Upstate is being allowed to die as other nearby states frack & drill for Gold (oil) while reducing taxes & creating jobs by the thousands".
The paperwork lists 1100 South Ocean Blvd.as the president's new home - Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort.
Donald Trump won't be able to avoid investigations back home, as the Manhattan District Attorney's Office is still working to obtain his tax records.
With that many new arrivals each year, they could tip the scales in America's largest swing state, where presidential elections are decided by razor-thin margins.
As news of the change spread, some of those city and state leaders, all Democrats, endorsed Trump's decision.
Since his arrival at the White House the septuagenarian has spent just 20 days at Trump Tower, including to attend the annual United Nations General Assembly, in contrast with the 99 days he's passed at Mar-a-Lago, according to a count from the network NBC. Trump's shift in residences would seem to raise raise the profile of Florida's marketing pitch as a cheaper alternative to NY.
"It's great for Florida", Scott said.
Trump on Twitter attacked Cuomo and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, saying they have let the city become "dirty & unsafe again" and that their mismanagement has driven people away. "Trump can't", Schumer tweeted.
