    What to Know

    • Trump says he will be making Palm Beach his permanent residence after leaving the White House, rather than returning to Trump Tower in NYC

    • Trump has spent far more time at Mar-a-Lago and his golf course in Bedminster than his midtown home Trump Tower since taking office

    • After Trump put his message out on Twitter, Gov. Cuomo didn't seem too broken up about it, saying 'He's all yours, Florida'

    Sounds like New York City is no longer the Big Apple of the president's eye.

    President Donald Trump says he will be making Palm Beach, Florida, his permanent residence after he leaves the White House, rather than returning to Trump Tower in New York.

    Trump tweeted late Thursday that he cherished New York. But he added that "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."

    The New York Times reported earlier Thursday that Trump had filed "declaration of domicile" paperwork changing his "predominant and principal home" to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

    Trump, who was born in New York, says "it will always have a special place in my heart!"

    The president has spent far more time at Mar-a-Lago and his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey, than his midtown home on the 58th floor of Trump Tower since taking office.

    After Trump put his message out on Twitter, Gov. Cuomo and NYC Mayor de Blasio didn't seem too broken up about it. 

    "Good riddance. It’s not like @realDonaldTrump paid taxes here anyway," the governor tweeted. "He’s all yours, Florida."

    De Blasio tweeted: "Our deepest condolences to the good people of Florida as Trump attempts to outrun his past (and near future)."
