What is the worst thing that anyone could do to Donald Trump…take money out his pockets and according to him that is exactly what is happening.
It seems Mr. Trump, founder of a casino company in Atlantic City, says it’s time for the United Stated to take steps to approve online gambling. His company, Trump Entertainment Resorts, is making plans to be ready as soon as it happens by establishing its own online betting venue.
His company is close to selecting a joint venture partner to help them run an online gambling operation and hopes it will be sitting on the ground floor ready to launch as soon as online gambling is legalized in the United States.
Trump said that having the best brand is the key to a successful online gambling site and that “We think we have the hottest brand there is, the Trump brand, my personal brand, we think it’s going to do phenomenally well.”
The company’s CEO Robert Griffin had this to say not only about online gambling but also about the resent set back in New Jersey concerning regulating online gambling;
“Currently, millions of Americans engage in online gaming with illegal offshore operators, and do so with no oversight, no regulation or no consumer protections. It makes sense for the state of New Jersey to regulate this activity, enforce strict standards to ensure games are fair and safe, and in turn be able to collect tax revenue instead of having those dollars and the jobs they support leaving New Jersey and going illegally overseas.”
