    I still don’t understand the history of Donald Trump. Did he ever go bankrupt or not? I seem to recall a building that he owned or a building that used his name. It was called “Trump Towers”. Didn’t that building file bankruptcy? If so, wasn’t Mr. Trump responsible for it? Will someone please explain this to me – How can Donald say that he was never bankrupt when Trump Towers went bankrupt? The notion of logic and responsibility elude me.

    One of his casinos went chapter 11 (is now out), not bankrupt. His real estate business has always done well obviously.

    He owned the casino? Okay. Isn’t it wrong to let something that you own go bankrupt if you can afford to pull it out of bankruptcy? If I have a hole in back yard and a mound of dirt in my front yard, shouldn’t I use the mound of dirt that is in my front yard to fill in the hole that is in my back yard? I just don’t understand it.

    Yeah it's called the Taj Mahal Casino in atlantic city I believe. He owns a few seperate businesses. His real estate is his baby so I'm sure he spends most of his time and money on it. I suspect it went bad due to poor management. Pouring more money into the casino with poor management is not a good idea. Just bring in new people and in a year or two it gets better, and it did. Smart businessmen don't get wealthy by throwing money around no matter how trivial it looks.

    Keep looking --I'm sure you can find something "wrong" with him.

    Okay. I just have my doubts about him. I hope that he treated his investors and employees at that casino well. I just imagine him leaving it and its people out on a limb.

    Don't get me wrong, Trump may be a genius, but he's also ruthless.
