Casino goes bankrupt

A US casino business founded by billionaire Donald Trump has filed for bankruptcy, for a second time.

Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc, which operates two casinos in Atlantic City, a US gambling mecca close to New York City, filed for bankruptcy yesterday.

The company, which billionaire investor Donald Trump founded but no longer controls, operates the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City. There are no implications for Donald Trump's investment here, the former Doonbeg Lodge.
