Clinton pokes Trump: 'How can anybody lose money running a casino?'


Clinton mocks Trump’s bankruptcies: ‘How can anybody lose money running a casino?’
Hillary Clinton got more personal with Donald Trump on Monday, poking the presumptive Republican nominee for his businesses' four bankruptcies, including his failed casinos
‘……..on Monday to address the Service Employees International Union’s international convention and ask its 2.1 million workers for help in defeating Trump…..

“Trump economics is a recipe for lower wages, fewer jobs, and more debt. He could bankrupt America like he has bankrupted his companies,” she told a crowd of roughly 3,000 members, all wearing their purple union shirts. The SEIU has endorsed Clinton for president……………

She paused, smiled and threw a punch: “I mean ask yourself how can anybody lose money running a casino? Really?”
Clinton mocks Trump’s bankruptcies: ‘How can anybody lose money running a casino?’

And HRC has just begun………… As I understand it the Clinton strategy to deal with Mr. Trump is to have HRC and surrogates point out issues that can get under Trumps skin………..Since he has little to no self-control he falls into a Twitter rage which at times consumes him for days at a time……….
HRC and friends are going to “tune-up” Dangerous Donald………….

Casinos lose money all the time. We Nevadans know and the people of Atlantic City know. But somebody who's only experience in the private sector involves defending pedophiles in court wouldn't know. That's why Clinton asks the question.

Huh, maybe her campaign is at least wising up enough to figure out how to hit Donald Trump where it hurts --his ability to make money. It'll be interesting to see how Trump responds. He's as touchy about his money as he is about his small penis hands.

This alone won't be enough though, but at least it's a start.

I do not see how any one of the Clintons have any room to talk.

They have not run any business at any time in their entire lives.

Their "Foundation" is NOT a business. It is a bribe money storage facility.

she was also stupid
she accurately pointed out that tRump needs to disclose his tax returns, citing the ones from the 80's showing him not to pay any income taxes

however, the obvious retort is for tRump to respond with an expectation for hillary to release the transcripts of her speeches to wall street; speeches for which she was well compensated by many of those who manipulated our economy into recession

OK Hillary, give it a try if you must, but I think you under estimate Don. This idea that he as poor self control just keeps going, it is amazing, how is it not obvious that he has amazing self control? I also think it is hilarious that she does not understand that most of us are going to assume that any Trump bashing by unknown groups will be assumed to come from her camp. And we already dont like her, she seems to not understand this, but then again I have long said that she is politically incompetent, and clearly her habitually light on sexual consent husband is now too.

Isn't the subject here about how Trump ran the casino into bankruptcy?

BTW

Reporting Trump's past is not "bashing"........it, in this case, a way to measure Trump's character........


And thank you for sharing your opinion./for what ever that may be worth

Was Trump the only person to lose money on casinos in Atlantic City?

I don't think so.

Hillary just proved again she is ignorant about how businesses are run.

She was making fun of Trump losing money with a casino which many people did in Atlantic City.

She is ignorant of how a business is run, and especially the casino business in Atlantic City.

Yes she did, but it was't only Trump that lost money, so her jab is not valid in that it was not anything that Trump did wrong to cause it.

Her comment falls flat for anybody with a brain.

She needs to try again.

she was spot on
that successful businessman failed four times such that bankruptcy was required
how many successful people do you know who have entered bankruptcy four times

None and Trump hasn't either.

His companies have.

It's "Hillary-ous" that any Clinton, all of whom have lived off the public teat or the charity of others for almost all their lives, would criticize anyone who actually created something from nothing, created jobs for a period of time, and profits as well. Atlantic City pretty much tanked before Trump's casinos did, largely because both the City government and the State government did nothing to clean up the image and crime in Atlantic City. When you've got people murdered outside of casinos for their winnings you're not going to have a lot of tourists/customers coming to your establishment.

I also recall that Trump tried to rationalize the salaries paid in the casinos prior to folding, but the unions would rather have no jobs than have lower paying ones.

If you willfully don't want to understand the point, I can't do anything about that.

In answer to your question, I don't know anybody that has had 500 businesses, so I also don't know anybody that has had 4 bankruptcies.

1. he filed for bankruptcy the same number of times Abe Lincoln did: twice.

2. we will never know if Hillary could bankrupt a business because she never ran one(outside of the crooked "Clinton Foundation")

only one in that list was bankrupt FOUR (4) times
and that was because the list included tRump


now i will ask for the third time in this thread; how many of those four chapter 11 bankruptcies were discharged by the bankruptcy court to continue as profitable organizations outside of bankruptcy
i ask this because so many want to pretend that because tRump filed under the chapter 11 reorganization provisions, those four bankrupt businesses were not actually toast

Hillary is an idiot. It's very easy to lose money running a casino. Maybe she wants to talk to the people at Caesar's corporate, which declared bankruptcy last year. Oh and there's Showboat, which went belly up in Atlantic City a couple of years ago. Then there's always Revel, which cost $2.4 billion to build and closed its doors 3 years later after it went bankrupt.

Hillary also needs to do her research on Atlantic City, and the number of casino failures there over the last 30 years. Once upon a time it was the only major place east of Las Vegas where you could gamble. Then every state except NH got licenses, they all built big huge new gigantic casinos, Atlantic City returned to the ghetto it was before the casinos were built, and everyone now goes to the fancy new casinos in PA and DE.

What a pathetic effort on her part. There are tons of things to go after Trump for. If she had any brains, which she clearly doesn't, she'd go after them. This isn't one of them.

The story is the Trump got caught in the political mismanagement of Atlantic City, which had a big hand in almost all of the cities casinos failing. Somehow this is supposed to be Trumps fault that the casinos run under his brand failed with the rest, yet I never hear what he allegedly did wrong to cause the failures. Probably because he did it right. There is a lot more meat on the bone with accusing Trump of wrongdoing with that football league, but the thing is at the time all I can remember hearing was that the enterprise was a fools errand from the jump, so IDK.

Personally I think starting a mortgage company in like 2007 was worse.
