During the 2016 Elections, Hillary Clinton was quick to criticize Donald Trump on his business practices and often referenced his failure as a casino owner as evidence that he was inadequate as a leader. Hillary’s speeches on Donald Trump’s failed casino is still echoed to this day when opponents are looking to bash the President of the United States. But was everything that Trump did for Atlantic City, and New Jersey, proven a failure? Trump’s History as a Casino Owner Donald Trump first came to New Jersey in 1982 with a vision to open world-class gambling institutions. He received his gaming license in New Jersey from the Casino Control Commission and spent the better part of the next two decades acquiring a number of casinos in Atlantic City, almost all of which were eventually sold or declared bankrupt. His first casino opened in 1984 under the name Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. In April 1990, the Trump Taj Majal opened as the world’s largest casino-hotel complex, joining Trump’s other holdings already operating in Atlantic City, the Trump Plaza and Trump’s Castle. He also had ownership stakes in Trump Marina, Trump World’s Fair, and Trump Casino. In 1995, Trump established Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts (THCR). Six months later, the Taj Majal defaulted on interest payments to bondholders. In July 1991, Trump’s Taj Mahal filed for bankruptcy, the first and most significant of the four that his companies have experienced. Over the course of the next two decades, THCR would declare…
Hillary Clinton Statements
Hillary Clinton maybe famous for a lot of reasons as she is the first US lady to run for president and also happens to be former president Bill Clinton’s wife. However, there are a few things about her that most people don’t know. Here are those few things. 1) In early 2015, it was revealed that Hillary Clinton used private email server to send emails while she was secretary of state and sent a few emails which was thought as classified. She was supposed to use the official state department server which substantially is a safer way to move classified information. Before long, FBI launched an investigation and discovered, 113 emails contained information which was classified at the time, 65 emails contained mysterious information and 22 were top secret. And then it just worsened, when she erased in excess of 30,000 emails in an attempt to cover up the use of unauthorized server. 2) Many religious individuals claim to have talked with angels and many spiritual figures, however Hillary made one stride additionally claiming to have interacted with apparitions. She claimed that she has taken some advice from former first lady “Elenore Roosevelt”. Be that as it may, Elenore Roosevelt wasn’t the main dead individual she talked with, the other one was “Gandhi “ 3) Everyone knows she’s the first woman in American history to have been nominated for presidential election by a major party and had a chance to be first female president of United States, yet other than…
Quite a few people believe that the majority of people in America are white racist/ misogynistic bigots and that is the reason why they supported Trump and it lead to his win and Clinton’s loss. However, there are more reasons to why Hillary lost the elections. One must acknowledge Trump’s tactics throughout his political campaign for the election. He addressed the most troubling issues in each state and spoke about the real tough problems that the American middle class is facing. Though he had his unrealistic chauvinistic and racist claims and aims he knew what the real American problems were. Whether he knows the solutions to these problems is a of course a different question but one must remember he has a whole group of political professionals aiding him through political policies and moves. When it comes to Clinton’s political agenda and campaign this is what worked against her wishes. There are about 700 districts in the United States that voted twice for Barack Obama, one-third of which turned to Trump in 2016. As per Nate Cohn of The New York Times, around one out of four of President Obama’s 2012 white working-class supporters defected from the Democrats in 2016, either supporting Mr. Trump or voting for a third-party candidate. As Democratic surveyor Stan Greenberg has pointed out, a considerable lot of these working-class Obama-Trump voters were not by any means white. The Democrats don’t have a ‘white working-class issue,’ Greenberg composed as of late in the American Prospect….
On Tuesday, Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). This the first time the group has ever endorsed a presidential candidate. In a statement, Roger Bryant, president of the RamsdenLaw.com.au Gold Coast, said “Hillary Clinton is an environmental champion with the passion, experience and savvy to build on President Obama’s environmental legacy. More than any other candidate running, Hillary Clinton understands the environmental challenges America faces, and her approach to solving them is grounded in the possibility and promise our democracy affords us.” Clinton released a statement in which she spoke about the importance of protecting the environment, and she pledged to fight alongside groups, such as the NRDC, who are fighting to protect the environment and fight climate change. Her full statement is below: “I am honored to have earned the first-ever presidential endorsement of the NRDC Action Fund. Climate change is real, it is being driven by human activity, and it is happening right now. We can’t wait for climate deniers and defeatists to get on board–we need to take immediate action to build on the progress President Obama has made in fighting this unprecedented global threat. We need to use every tool we have to make America the clean energy superpower of the 21st century and to make sure no one is left out or left behind in the clean energy economy, from communities struggling with the legacy of environmental racism to the coalfield communities that kept America’s lights on for generations. That’s why…
Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump’s economic plan in a speech in Warren, Michigan. She hit Trump hard calling him the enemy of “the little guy” and that his economic agenda would be beneficial for him and his businesses, but would write off everyone else. “There is a myth out there that he’ll stick it to the rich and powerful because, somehow, at heart, he’s really on the side of the little guy. Don’t believe it,” she said. Clinton then gave a point-by-point rebuttal to Trump’s plan by describing her plans to increase taxes on the wealthy, make big businesses pay higher taxes when they outsource their workforce, and improve the nation’s infrastructure. She argued that her plan will create more jobs and build the economy at a faster pace
Today in Omaha, Nebraska, Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of billionaire investor Warren Buffet. He introduced Clinton during an event held at Sokol Auditorium where she gave a speech outlining part of her tax plan, including her support of the Buffett Rule. The proposed Buffett Rule would set a minimum tax rate on individuals making over one million dollars a year. With the loopholes of the tax system, many who making over $250,000 a year pay a lower percentage in taxes than someone making significantly less. Clinton said that her agenda would increase taxes on the wealthy to ensure they pay their fair share while cutting taxes for the middle class. She also outlined a number of tax credits that would be made available for heath care and care for the elderly. Clinton said, “I want to be the president for the struggling, the striving and the successful.” A video of Buffett’s introduction and Clinton’s speech is below.
On Friday evening, Hillary Clinton spoke in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at a celebration of the 200th anniversary of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Clinton spoke about the events of the week: the police killing of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, Louisiana; the police shooting of Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minnesota; and the sniper attack in Dallas, Texas that killed five police officers and wounded several others. Clinton said that each of the killings were “senseless” and condemned violence saying, “We know there is something wrong in this country. There is too much violence, too much hate, too much senseless killing. Too many people dead who shouldn’t be.” Clinton spoke about the racial divide that only seems to be growing saying, “As we know, there is clear evidence that African-Americans are much more likely to be killed in police incidents than any other group of Americans. And we know there is too little trust in too many places between police and the communities they are sworn to protect.” Clinton said that good law enforcement officers far outnumber those who are bad and a violent response to violence is not the answer. The protest in Dallas yesterday was peaceful and police were there to monitor the crowds and ensure the protesters’ safety when they were fired upon by a sniper. Clinton spoke about her proposal to invest $1 billion in police training across the county to ensure the safety of law enforcement officers as well as the general public.

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton spoke to a crowd in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Speaking in front of the defunct Trump Plaza Casino, she attacked Republican Donald Trump’s business record. Before her speech, Clinton introduced small businessman Marty Rosenberg who had done business with Trump. He told the story of how Trump racked up massive bills, then used bankruptcy to get out of paying. During Clinton’s speech, she focused on the casino and how Trump’s judgement hurt local people and businesses. Clinton said, “Donald Trump once predicted it [Casino] was the biggest hit yet. Now it’s abandoned.” She continued to go after Trump for his refusal to pay contractors, his frequent legal battles, and his bankruptcy filings. Clinton closed her speech by reminding voters that Trump has repeatedly framed himself as a successful business man. She said, “Remember what he promised: ‘I’m going to do for the country what I did for my business.’ We should believe him and make sure he never has the chance to bankrupt America the way he bankrupted his businesses.
On Thursday, Hillary Clinton spoke to the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) in Washington, DC. During her speech, Clinton urged Latinos to get out to vote in November to send Republican Donald Trump a message that Latinos are an important part of the American population. She criticized Trump for his divisive language and pledged to work toward a comprehensive immigration reform plan as president. Clinton said that country was founded by immigrants and it is the diversity of the United States that makes it unique. She said, “The choice we make will say a lot about who we are and whether we understand and celebrate the diversity of our country, which makes us all the stronger.” A video from the event is below.
Hillary Clinton released a statement on Thursday calling for the passage of the the bipartisan Miners Protection Act, a bill sponsored by Senators Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV) and Joe Manchin (D-WV). The plan would rescue the pension offered by the United Mine Workers (UMW) and ensure that retired miners continue to receive their benefits. UMW will be on Capitol Hill on Thursday to gather support for the bill. In her statement, Clinton expresses her support of the act saying that it will ensure that miners receive the benefits they have earned. A copy of Clinton’s statement is below. “I firmly believe that if you spent your life keeping the lights on for our country, we can’t leave you in the dark. For more than a century, America’s coal miners have put their own health and safety at risk to provide affordable and reliable energy for the nation. They are entitled to the benefits they have earned and the respect they deserve. That’s why I am proud to stand with Senator Joe Manchin and the United Mine Workers of America in calling on Congressional Republicans to stop playing politics and give the Miners Protection Act a vote before the benefits of these hardworking men and women start expiring later this year. We also have a shared responsibility to reinvest in the coal communities that have been an engine of American economic growth. That’s why last fall, I proposed a comprehensive revitalization and job creation plan including building 21st-century infrastructure and high-speed…
