If you have some inside info that absolves Trump, spill it.

I get sick of the number of times some of you jump on me as if I'm some kind of ****ing idiot that doesn't research both sides of an issue before posting an "OPINION" on this forum.

I'm not absolving Trump. I'm simply pointing out (as I usually do whenever I come to this thread), that there are MULTIPLE REASONS behind the downfall of Atlantic City. You just like to grab shitty things Trump does and exaggerate the hell out of them to justify your position. Trump did not single handedly destroy Atlantic City. I'm not arguing anything about Trump, I'm just saying you are factually wrong.

And of that 60% a huge chunk of it is him just pimping out his name to overseas lapdogs who have tons of money to throw away on Trump's celebrity status.

I don't admire that. I understand why you do though.

You do realize that out of the hundreds of millions he generates a big chunk of that goes to payroll in some form or fashion right? Any business as large as his has to write off a lot every year just to remain somewhat profitable.

Stop being passive-aggressive and try to think about what actually goes into a global enterprise for 5 seconds.

So if I don't have first hand knowledge, and have to to rely on everything that's available via dozens of various media and online sources, exactly what am I supposed to do to supplant you ****ers with my opinions?

Rather than jumping on me and what you call "my biases" how about you come up with something to counter the vast majority overview of the actual issue?

Post something that actually proves that Trump didn't **** Atlantic City over big time. That is the subject here. Not what I have to say on the subject.

Come on, provide some defense to what I've said other than "because you said it, it sucks". I dare you.

You're due for a chill pill.

DWV is not arguing that Trump didn't have any effect on Atlantic City, just that he was one of myriad factors and that it's short sighted to point to him as the key cause.

You didn't really give us anything to defend against, unless there was a link to a source or two that I missed. You just kind of dropped an opinion and walked off. That's not how debates work.

What Frown said.. and if you want one of the many examples of the downfall of AC that you can read about with a simple google search, you should try looking into the Revel Casino.

I'm waiting.

I'm not saying other things weren't at play. But admit Trump helped to **** your city over big time.

Or don't.
