New York Senator Chuck Schumer Mocks Trump Making Florida His New Home, Donald Jr. Fires Back

New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer pulled lyrics from a famous Frank Sinatra song while taking a jab at President Donald Trump on Saturday. The president's son then swiped back at the senator.

First off, President Trump was born and raised in New York, making him a lifelong New Yorker. This week he changed his permanent address to Palm Beach, Florida, saying it was because of his treatment from New York politicians.

Schumer pulled a line from the song, "New York, New York" to say that perhaps Trump wasn't New York tough.

"New York, New York. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere... Trump can't," Schumer tweeted.

Donald Trump Jr. was quick to defend his father during a retaliatory tweet on Saturday.

"Another one that would parade around our offices begging for dollars and laughing about how 99% of his time is raising money for his re-elections," Trump Jr. wrote.

"@realDonaldTrump changed the skyline of NYC. Can anyone name one thing Cryin Chuck has actually done for New York??? Just One?"

The president made his announcement of leaving New York as his permanent home through Twitter, of course.

"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," President Trump wrote.

"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!"

The New York Times first secured Trump's change of address documents. The court papers show he is changing his address from Trump Tower in New York City to his Mar-a-Lago golf resort in Florida. First lady Melania Trump also filed an identical document for the same change of address.

"If I maintain another place or places of abode in some other state or states, I hereby declare that my above-described residence and abode in the State of Florida constitutes my predominant and principal home, and I intend to continue it permanently as such," Trump's file stated.

The document shows that Trump "formerly resided at 721 Fifth Avenue," and also included 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C—the White House—and his private club in Bedminster, N.J. as other places he lives.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told Trump goodbye in a sarcastic Twitter response.

"Good riddance. It's not like @realDonaldTrump paid taxes here anyway... He's all yours, Florida."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, who is one of the remaining 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls, said Trump was moving so he could further hide his taxes from the State of New York.

"Donald Trump doesn't want the state of New York to see his taxes—I wonder why," Warren said in a tweet. "Let's call this out for what it is: Corruption, plain and simple. Under my anti-corruption plan, all presidential candidates would be required to release their tax returns."
