Following a more than 100 days strike by union members over no health and pensions benifits, Trump Taj Mahal closed down on Monday. The casino, which costed nearly 1 billion dollars and opened 26 years ago, was once called "the eighth wonder of the world" by former owner and republican president candidate Donald Trump.

well me ponders that no one closes such colossal piece of real estate for the reason that bricks are falling from the ceiling onto blackjack players heads. this looks like more of a paper bankruptcy. they will re-open when they reshuffle their main costs and open when ready to do business and actually make some money for the owners instead of generating losses all the time.
most likely it is just another financial transaction ... will destroy the building and in its place are structured new ... many people earn on this good money ... and the people who get fired from work let employed on the construction site of the new building)) Of course this is only my guess is, but everything can be ...

Let's hope the Trump Taj Mahal will reopen someday, like others that have recently gone under. Showboat, which closed its doors two years ago, has reopened as a hotel. And the new owner of the Revel, which also stopped operating in 2014, hopes to launch a new property in Atlantic City soon.

Perhaps not in accordance with the law to the president candidate has business relations with casinos or gambling,surely his advisers have given such instructions I do not believe that they had no customers, such a large casino can not be in the negative balance too bad for workers, many people lost their jobs, everyone is family, no money how will feed I think that there is no economic crisis is concerned, it is a political deal
One of the reasons casinos are having difficulties is that people can now play at home, online in front of their computers. another one is that now a days it is harder to have black money, back in the days a lot of people had a double administration, one for white and one for black money. Casinos made a lot of profit because there were a lot of people spending their black money in casinos. New times and people will loose their jobs, people need to find work in new fields and keep learning new skills.

Why he don´t sell this great Casino, it seems that he closed the Casino definetly forever. It seems, that he do that for his political career, but in the past he did what he want and gives nothing about the People can thinking.
Makes sense. They were on strike to re-establish their gutted benefits, now they have no jobs to return to whatsoever. Looks like everybody got what they wanted. Including the owner who could file a bankruptcy claim 4 the casino and then just manage off the net losses - which come from closing down - from his own tax report. Good con.

So! Whole I don't profess to have any great affiliation towards 'The Donald' I just wonder whether this is news that is news for a reason? If it's one of a number of casinos closing down then it's just anot her casino, but the way the headline is written sounds like it's Mr Trumps fault! Bad news making bad news.
