Scott, Team Trump welcome President Trump to Florida


Some people are speculating that President Donald Trump’s reason for making Florida his permanent home was because of the year-round sunny weather, the Stone Crabs claws, and golfing with Rush Limbaugh at The Breakers or Mar A Lago. 

They may be right, but that isn’t the real reason for the move.

The real reason Trump made the move back in October was because of the high taxes he pays, and the state’s tax-loving politicians and elected officials that dislike him.

Trump made the announcement via what else, Twitter, and mentioning those city and state leaders treated him “very badly.”

“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. 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. 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!

Florida Senator Rick Scott (R), who transformed Florida’s overall economic outlook while governor, welcomed the president, tweeting that he has stated before that “eventually ends up moving to Florida.

Trump’s very own Florida-based presidential election team also welcomed its boss to Florida, releasing a statement outlining Florida’s winning ways.

“Florida welcomes President Trump and First Lady Melania to the Sunshine State! President Trump has continued to deliver results for Florida – with an unprecedented 3.2% statewide unemployment rate, and record low unemployment for African Americans, Hispanics and women. Because of the President’s promises kept agenda, Floridians will re-elect Donald Trump in 2020.” – Trump Victory Spokesperson Danielle Alvarez
