NEW YORK — Governor Andrew Cuomo has a message for President Donald Trump amid reports Trump has filed residency paperwork for Florida: "Good riddance."

"It's not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway," Cuomo said in a statement. "He's all yours, Florida."

New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson had the same message for Trump.

"GOOD RIDDANCE!!," he tweeted.

Trump confirmed the report in a series of tweets Thursday night.

"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, he tweeted. "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!"

Trump changed his primary residence from Manhattan to Palm Beach, Fla. in September, the New York Times reported Thursday.

“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,” the document Trump filed reads, according to the New York Times.

The president grew up in Queens and his home was posted for sale.

Friday, Trump took shots at Cuomo and de Blasio in four tweets.
