Like many other New Yorkers, President Trump is seeking to lower his tax obligations by leaving the Big Apple.

In a tweet fired off on Thursday evening, Trump said that while he hopes to stay in the White House for another five years, his family will be making Palm Beach, Florida, their permanent residence. He added that he will always have a special place in his heart for New York, despite paying millions in taxes and being “treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state.”

Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania, filed documents to change their official residences to Palm Beach, Florida, last month, as first reported by The New York Times on Thursday. Palm Beach is where Mar-a-Lago is located.

Florida has no statewide income tax, estate tax or inheritance tax. Meanwhile, New York’s top income tax rate is more than 8 percent.

Trump was born in Queens and has been a lifelong New Yorker, though he has recently been extremely critical of the state’s tax policies.

In July, the president slammed Cuomo over the state’s high taxes and hostile business climate, saying it is “no wonder” both people and businesses were “fleeing New York in record numbers.”
