3. It's not a casino.

Also: Photoshopped or for real? I haven't seen any news link to this yet.

Trump International Hotel Las Vegas
....

History

In April 2002, Phil Ruffin announced that he had partnered with Donald Trump to build Trump Tower Las Vegas, a $300 million 60-story condominium tower with 300 units and the possibility of a casino, to be constructed on Fashion Show Drive, near Ruffin's New Frontier Hotel and Casino. Trump had initially approached Ruffin two years earlier about developing a property on or near the Las Vegas Strip. Construction on Trump Tower Las Vegas was to begin in six to seven months, and was expected to last approximately 18 months. In August 2003, Ruffin said the tower had been decreased to 43 stories and was expected to cost $272 million.

In November 2003, Trump denied that the project had been delayed or that it was suffering from a lack of financing. Trump also said he was considering "something on a larger scale" for the project. In July 2004, Ruffin said the project had been delayed up to that point because of other business ventures, including Trump's reality television show, The Apprentice. That month, Trump and Ruffin announced revised plans for Trump International Hotel and Tower, a $300 million condominium-hotel with over 1,000 units. Although Trump held a Nevada gaming license, he chose not to include a casino on the property. Donald Trump's son Eric Trump later said, "We have no problem getting a gaming license, but we wanted to do something different here. We wanted a true luxury resort experience. It's hard to have a high-quality product when you walk into 'ding, ding, ding' and there are people walking around in Hawaiian shirts with big plastic drink mugs."

i was going to mention that.
my sister stayed there during a family vacation and i went to her room. long before he was running for president but i felt dirty being there even so. i think it was the birther shit and the golf course in RPV that made him repellent to me.

They broadcast various "messages" based on recent events.

Interesting aside about the Trump Tower in Las Vegas....Phil Ruffin was who Trump traveled with to Moscow in 2013. He actually used his plane.

By October 2008, only 21 percent of condo unit sales had closed, as potential buyers had trouble securing mortgages.[26] As of 2013, Eric Trump oversees operations at the tower.[11]

Gaming License in Nevada. That POS is just a Hotel that is usually less than fifty per cent occupied.

Wonder who Phil Riffin will fire for letting that banner happen?

25. Was at a Campaign Rally for Jackie Rosen

with Harry Reid taking questions as well as Rosen. Someone asked about Gaming Licenses and in particular the Trump Tower Hotel. Reeds comments were,as long as Trump is alive,he will never get a license in Nevada. His Corrupt past and known Mob People as well as his Bankruptcies are noted in the State Gaming Commission files as someone who will never gain a license.

But a former business associate told the Daily News that despite being a self-described “clean hands freak” and germaphobe, Trump has “always been far more focused on creating an image for his properties than in spending what it takes to make them excellent”.

14. Okay, let me rephrase...Trump will never hold an active gaming license in Nevada

“I may not be an expert on a lot of stuff, but I’m an expert on gaming licenses,” Reid, a former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, told Post reporter Ben Terris. “You can’t have filed 14 bankruptcies, cheat people out of stuff. In gaming circles, if somebody does something bad once, you can’t get a gaming license. He’s done something bad his whole life.”
- Harry Reid

44. Not exactly...both are correct. I think the passive gaming license is acquired with the property

but can only be made active with an approval from the gaming commission after an extensive review. I could be in error regarding the procedure. I believe in the article in the Huff Post Reid himself says that Trump was issued a passive license in 2004.

He'll never be able to put the lid back on this can of worms and I hope he ends up paying dearly for it.

I may be totally off base, but I think he was ordered to pull the troops and that it won't be long before the whole truth comes out. This is a disaster from the get-go, which seems to be how he does most everything that grates our nerves. Hell is too good for him or I'd tell him to go there.

Good for them! Was in Vegas at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino. Every morning we opened our window curtains, we would be staring at that ugly building.

He is not only a brazen coward, an openly obvious traitor, but his arrogant ignorant decisions are costing thousands of lives and a fragile reputation that we are ever likely to repair for generations. When the next President has to deal with all the ISIS fighters and their families who escape because of his spineless cowardice, the repuKKKes will be howling at a "weak front on the new ISIS".

This isn't the first time we abandoned our allies. I saw it in Vietnam; we recently did it in Iraq, and we're preparing to do it again in Afghanistan.

I'm truly ashamed of my country for so many reasons. This is one of them.
