Florida he's all yours

Trump changes his residence from New York to Florida

Goodbye, Trump Tower. Hello, Mar-a-Lago.

Born and raised in New York City, President Trump lived and worked in Trump Tower before going to the White House, but he's ready to head south. In September, the president and first lady Melania Trump both filed paperwork to change their primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Florida, The New York Times reports.

The documents, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, state that their new permanent residence is Mar-a-Lago, Trump's private club. Trump's "other places of abode" are the White House and his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Since becoming president, Trump has spent 99 days at Mar-a-Lago, compared to 20 at Trump Tower, NBC News reports.

There are two reasons for the change, a person close to Trump told the Times, and they both involve taxes. Trump is mad that the Manhattan district attorney is trying to get his tax returns, and Florida also does not have a state income tax or inheritance tax. Take a look at the change of residency documents here.
