Trump will move permanent residence to Florida
WASHINGTON: President of the United States Donald Trump He said Thursday that he will make Palm Beach, Florida, his apartment instead of his Trump Tower in New York City.
Trump has owned the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach since 1985 and has spent more time there during his presidency than in his apartment in the attic of Fifth Avenue in New York.
My family and I will make Palm Beach, Florida, our permanent residence, Trump said on Twitter.
Despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in municipal, state and local taxes every year, the political leaders of the city and the state have treated me very badly, he said, referring to New York.
