Liquidation sale starts at Trump’s former Taj Mahal casino

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Hundreds of people are swarming the lobby of Atlantic City’s Trump Taj Mahal casino, hoping to score big.

But Thursday’s crowds aren’t gamblers; they’re bargain hunters searching for deals at a liquidation sale of the contents of the casino President Donald Trump built in 1990.

Hot sellers included TVs, chairs and room furnishings.

Political junkies were likely to be disappointed: All items with the Trump name on them were removed from the casino before the sale began.

Hard Rock bought the shuttered casino in March for $50 million from billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

A summer 2018 opening is planned.

Trump cut most ties with Atlantic City in 2009, having lost control of the casino company in a bankruptcy.
