President Trump has gone on the offensive against the state of New York and Governor Andrew Cuomo for what he says are outrageously high taxes and targeted harassment of Trump-related businesses.

According to Fox Business:

President TrumpOpens a New Window. lashed out at New York and its Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday over the state’s high taxesOpens a New Window. and a hostile business climate.

In a series of tweets the president alleged Cuomo was using the state attorney general for his own purposes, which included “harassing” all of his businesses.

He also said that it is no surprise people and businesses are “fleeing New York in record numbers,” since the state has “ridiculously high taxes.”



Data from the U.S. Census Bureau showed that while Florida (which charges no state income tax) received more movers than any other state last year, New York's outflows to the Sunshine State were the highest – 63,772 people. New York had the third-largest outflows of any state, with 452,580 people moving out within the past year.

President Trump also urged New York and other high tax states to rethink their high taxes in favor of lower ones.
