ATLANTIC CITY - The list of casinos closing or expected to close here just keeps growing. Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino will likely shut its doors for good in mid-September.

Is he moving to Tunica or Biloxi?
That's an inference on your part.
The new incompetent media can no longer be trusted to try to answer the fundamental question of all news stories : Why?
Maybe it’s a combination of too many casinos per square mile all vying for the same small group of monied tourists. In addition, there may be a lot of online gambling for those who don’t want to stand next to strangers all afternoon in questionable neighborhoods. In addition to that, Obama’s non-recovery recovery in combination with Obamacare rules has skimmed away many people who used to work full time. Less cross country business travelers, because Skype is now available.
Trump is a victim of not just the brutal Obama economy, but a victim of the brutal vengeance of Obama’s retribution for Donald’s calling attention to the fake birth certificate.
so now maybe Atlantic City will relapse back to the dump it was before gambling came to save it
Once there was only Vegas. Then there was Vegas and Atlantic City. Now, here in the Buffalo area alone we have 4, not counting the one across the border in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The gambling pie can only be sliced up so thin.
It never stopped being a dump...
As much as I find the new synthetic “Disney with slots” Las Vegas annoying and even kind of pathetic, you’ve got to admit that reinvention has worked, and quite possibly saved the city as a tourist destination. With Indian casinos everywhere “come across country to gamble here” is simply not a compelling narrative anymore, and Atlantic City hasn’t found anything else to advertise.
Indian casinos ops having any effect, by chance?
Trump is the victim of never actually being as good as his self imposed reputation. The guy’s gone bankrupt more often than most welfare queens.
Pennsylvania is killing Atlantic City. Atlantic city has the better Casinos but it’s much safer in Pennsylvania.
Gambling’s a tax on stupidity. I’d suspect that all the local stupids are happy to lose locally. Why waste any gambling money on travel and a hotel?

‘The new incompetent media can no longer be trusted to try to answer the fundamental question of all news stories : Why?’
I’ll take a shot!
Six years of financial ruin with ZERO new jobs and 20% + real unemployment with no end In site coupled with massive increased competition causes vacation spots dedicated to wasting money up the creek. So to speak.
How did I do?
Trump only let the entertainment group use his name. It is not owned by Trump!
After the casino come tour Soweto across that street!
Can't New Jersey do anything right?
