The Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal may be closed, but the Donald isn’t through gambling. Donald Trump says he’s going to take a serious look at returning to struggling Atlantic CIty.

“I left seven years ago,” Trump the New York Post at the Central Park Horse Show Thursday. “I had great years in Atlantic City, I did well in Atlantic City. I’m gonna take a look at it. Not the same place, unfortunately.”
And as usual Trump has been on a Twitter tear:

I left Atlantic City years ago, good timing. Now I may buy back in, at much lower price, to save Plaza & Taj. They were run badly by funds! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2014

It is so sad to see what has happened to Atlantic City. So many bad decisions by the pols over the years — airport, convention center, etc.,

Does anybody notice that Atlantic City lost its magic after I left years ago?

Does anybody notice that Atlantic City lost its magic after I left years ago. I had the big boxing, introduced UFC (ask Dana),the best shows — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2014

The Trump Plaza closed Tuesday and Trump Entertainment Resorts, which owns the Trump Taj Mahal casino filed for bankruptcy this month. Trump didn’t own either of the casions.

“I feel very badly for a lot of people that are there,” Trump said. “So many people are being laid off in Atlantic City, there’s so many of them closing up. I will take a good, serious look.” [NYP] Christopher Cameron

    Disappointed in The Real Deal for publishing Trumps’s lies. He doesn’t have a dollar to his name, he just sells his name to others hoping their customers will be gullible before the project declares bankruptcy.

    Mostly all of the negative posts here have the same theme here,Trump is a BUM!!! I was in the Air conditioning field & spoke to many contractors who landed contracts with Trump properties,many of them thought their ship had come in & they were going to be very wealthy! Little did they know how the Trump organization really works! He gives contracts to small companies who cant afford to fight him in court since he has lawyers on retainers to take care of his dirty work when he decides who he will pay & who he will not!!! Ultimately these small companies of hard working people go bankrupt for real,not just so called reorganizing like Trump! Reorganizing is just another word for ” Fk u ur not getting paid!” Very sad how biz works in this Country! His dad may have been a genius but Trump is best served staring at himself in the mirror,because thats the only person who means anything to him!!!, the rest are just pawns in his silly game!!! Donald.how do u sleep at night??? Like a baby or are u tormented by ur EVIL SELF???

      People without souls never have problems sleeping. Bernie Madoff is always well rested. Dick Cheney too. The Donald is not only well rested and confident about his clean conscience, he is also constitutionally unable to conceive himself as being anything other than a good man; he would get along well with George W Bush who goes through life feeling the same way.
