President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump changed their primary residence in September to Palm Beach, Fla., the New York Times reports

Why it matters, per the NYT: "White House officials declined to say why Mr. Trump changed his primary residence, but a person close to the president said the reasons were primarily for tax purposes." That same person also reportedly told the Times that Trump was "infuriated" by a Manhattan lawsuit that sought the president’s tax returns. Since taking the oath of office, Trump has spent 99 days at Mar-a-Lago, as opposed to just 20 days at Trump Tower, per NBC News.

President Trump's lawyers intend to petition the U.S. Supreme Court by Nov. 14 to review a lower court ruling requiring the president to turn over eight years of his tax returns to a state grand jury, according to a letter written Friday.

Why it matters: This case would mark the first time the Supreme Court makes a decision on Trump's legal argument — that he is immune from criminal investigation while in office — and could "produce a major statement on the limits of presidential power," the New York Times reports.

The big picture: Many members of Mar-a-Lago have left since Trump's presidency began, and now Trump loyalists dominate the club. These groups support the president's right-leaning politics by renting out its ballrooms for lavish private events.
