NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- President Donald Trump took aim -- again --  at Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo late Friday afternoon after both Democratic lawmakers excitedly welcomed Trump's announcement that he will be making Palm Beach, Florida his permanent residence, not New York City.

"I love New York, but New York can never be great again under the current leadership of Governor Andrew Cuomo (the brother if Fredo), or Mayor Bill DeBlasio," Trump tweeted. Fredo is a reference to Cuomo's brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. 

He continued, "Cuomo has weaponized the prosecutors to do his dirty work (and to keep him out of jams), a reason some don’t want to be in New York, and another reason they are leaving. Taxes and energy costs are way too high, Upstate is being allowed to die as other nearby states frack & drill for Gold (oil) while reducing taxes & creating jobs by the thousands. NYC is getting dirty & unsafe again, as our great police are being disrespected, even with water dumped on them, because a Mayor and Governor just don’t “have their backs. New York’s Finest must be cherished, respected and loved."

He concluded, "too many prople are leaving our special New York. Great leaders would work with a President and Federal Government that wants our wonerful City and State to flourish and thrive. I Love New York!

Trump had 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 that Trump had filed "declaration of domicile" paperwork changing his "predominant and principal home" to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Cuomo and de Blasio were quick to comment on the news in typical New York fashion.

Cuomo said "Good riddance" among other things.

While de Blasio said "Don't let the door hit you on the way out or whatever."

Trump will be in Manhattan Saturday night. He reportedly will attend the UFC 244 event at Madison Square Garden.
