President Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that people are "fleeing New York like never before" for Texas and Florida because of taxes and the treatment the National Rifle Association is receiving.

"If they own a business, they are twice as likely to flee," the president tweeted. "And if they are a victim of harassment by the A.G. of the state, like what they are doing to our great NRA, which I think will move quickly to Texas, where they are loved."

"Texas will defend them & indemnify them against political harassment by New York State and Governor Cuomo," he added. "So many people are leaving New York for Texas and Florida that it is totally under siege. First New York taxes you too high, then they sue you, just to complete the job."

New York Attorney General Letitia James earlier this year opened a probe into the NRA's tax-exempt status, issuing letters to top NRA officials and affiliated groups to preserve financial records before issuing subpoenas to some of the NRA's related businesses.

Last year, the NRA sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying a "blacklisting" campaign caused it to lose insurance coverage.

James' office is also currently investigating the Trump Organization for claims it underpaid undocumented immigrants working at a Trump-owned golf club. On Monday, Trump called the investigations a "political witch hunt," reports Fox News.
