Donald Trump Is Not The First To "retire" In Florida: Democrats

Miami.- The president of the Florida Democratic Party (FDP), Terrie Rizzo, responded with irony this Friday to the announcement of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, that he changed his residence from New York to Palm Beach: "It is not the first person who lives in Florida to retire. "

Rizzo spoke like this after reporting the steps that the Florida Democrats are going to take to not make "the same mistakes" of 2016 and get the voters of this key state to turn their backs on Trump in the 2020 elections, when he will seek the re-election.

Another is to fight to reduce the number of potential voters who for various reasons are deprived of the right to vote, something that occurs in Florida "365 days a year," according to a statement from the FPD.

This Thursday Trump confirmed that he has changed his address and that of his family in New York, where he was born and lived for decades before arriving at the White House, in Palm Beach (Florida), where he has his mansion and private club, Mar-a -Lake.

Previously The New York Times had reported that change of legal address, which, according to Trump, is due to the fact that in his city he has been "treated badly", but, according to the media, it may be because the Florida tax regime It is more advantageous for large fortunes.
