Is Donald Trump Contemplating a Return to Atlantic City?
Following a series of tweets earlier today, Donald Trump says he will take, "a good strong look" at taking back control of the Atlantic City casino company that bears his name.
Just hours after Trump Plaza closed following three decades of gaming in Atlantic City, Trump told The Associated Press that buying back control of Trump Entertainment Resorts is all about the price and if Trump Plaza could still be a viable property. Trump says, "I got out years ago, the timing was good, but I feel really badly about the people. I will be taking a very serious look."
Trump owns a small stake in Trump Entertainment Resorts and went to court last month to try to get his name removed from Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal.
Harry Hurley, morning show host on WPG Talk Radio 1450 AM and former senior hotel executive at the former Trump Marina casino says, "When Donald Trump floats something like this, he really means it. Donald also likes to fix things. It would be great if Mr. Trump decides to return to Atlantic City."
Meanwhile, The Press of Atlantic City reports a Trump helicopter landed at Trump Taj Mahal this afternoon, but Donald Trump says he was not on board.
