Donald Trump has stated he would like to spend as much time in New York as possible, according to the New York Times. This means not living full-time at the White House. While presidents are not required to move into the Washington, D.C. residence, it does seem a bit odd for Trump to pass on the opportunity. However, one look at Trump’s Manhattan estate may show why the president-elect is opting out. Take a look inside his “palace,” and see why the Donald may choose his New York digs over the White House.
