The failure of the now president’s (TRUMP) five Atlantic City businesses resulted in thousands of job losses and put dozens of local contractors out of business because they were, much like the elephant sculptor, unpaid. Yet, during his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump boasted of how he took “incredible” amounts of money out of Atlantic City, borrowing cash from third parties so his own wealth wasn’t affected by his various businesses going under. According to Rose, his legacy is best reflected by Atlantic City’s 7.4% unemployment rate – nearly double the national average. “When Trump failed with his casinos,” says Rose, “he turned Atlantic City into a ghost town. His legacy still haunts the boardwalk.”

After yesterday’s visit to AC, how’s it going with/without our fearless leader. About what you’d expect. Successful? Nah! Empty boasts! Best! Biggest!  – not by a country mile. There remain staunch supporters. When exactly did you guys stop believing in the tooth fairy?
