December 18th – CNN reported on the 18th that a casino building previously operated by Trump will be demolished by explosion on January 29 next year.
Atlantic City, the home of the casino, has decided to auction the eligibility to press the blast button. This caused eager inquiries from buyers, and the purchase phone number was blown up.
Trump Plaza, a casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, reportedly opened in 1984. Trump once praised that the Atlantic Casino is almost comparable to Las Vegas.
However, as states ease gambling restrictions, fewer and fewer people visited the casino. Finally, it closed in 2014 and is now in a state of disrepair.
Atlantic City has decided to demolish the 39-story building by blasting, which is scheduled for January 29 next year.
Mayor Small said that the auction will be held for the eligibility to press the blast button, which will be auctioned from December 17 to January 19 next year, and the highest bidder will get this opportunity. Small said.
It is hoped that more than 1 million US dollars will be raised, and the funds will be used for a charity organization called Boys and Girls Club.
Small also revealed that people from all over the United States were eager to consult, and even called from Canada, and the phone calls from his office were blown up.
He said that after the casino was demolished, it would discuss with the current landowners how to plan the area, including building some attractions that would attract families to visit.
