Governor Andrew Cuomo does not appear to feel at loss over President Trump’s plans to relocate his primary residency from New York to Florida.
President Trump announced his plans in a thread of tweets on Thursday evening.
“1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the White House, is the place I have come to love and will stay for, hopefully, another 5 years as we MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, but my family and I will be making Palm Beach, Florida, our Permanent Residence,” President Trump said.
“I cherish New York, and the people of New York, and always will, but unfortunately, despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state. Few have been treated worse,” he added. “I hated having to make this decision, but in the end it will be best for all concerned. 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!”
In a response to news of President Trump’s move, Governor Cuomo suggested during a MSNBC interview that Trump is making the move as a “legal tactic” to avoid paying taxes. He also tweeted: “Good riddance. It’s not like @realDonaldTrump paid taxes here anyway…”
The President’s son, Donald Trump Jr., responded to Cuomo upon seeing his tweet.
“Nice soundbite,” Don Jr. replied. “Now do the tens of thousands of other successful New Yorkers and businesses fleeing your idiotic policies every week. I’ll wait.”
“Also I don’t remember this sentiment ever stopping you from coming to @realDonaldTrump’s office begging for $,” he added. “I was there. GOOD TIMES.” See Below
