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?

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
