Trump: The Art of Survival
Trump: The Art of Survival published in 1991. The business magnate discusses his purchases of the Eastern Shuttle and Plaza Hotel, his construction of the Taj Mahal, and his sponsorship of heavyweight boxing, and gives advice on dealing with success and the importance of toughness.
When you look at cover of book, you will see Taj Mahal back of Donald. What that's means?
Trump's third property in Atlantic City was wrapped in controversy prior to opening because of its role, along with Resorts Casino Hotel, in the fight between Donald Trump and Merv Griffin in 1988 over Resorts International. Resorts was
developing and constructing the Resorts Taj Mahal Casino north of Resorts Casino Hotel on the boardwalk, but had run out of money and construction was stopped. Trump was attempting to buy the unfinished resort, along with Resorts, but Merv Griffin would not sell. Eventually, a deal was created between Trump and Griffin giving Griffin Resorts in Atlantic City and the Resorts Paradise Island with the unfinished Taj Mahal project going to Trump. The casino opened in 1990 as the Trump Taj Mahal and was the largest and highest grossing casino in the city until the opening of The Borgata in 2003. The Chairman Tower opened in 2008, bringing the complex to over 2,000 rooms.
The casino is also the scene for a notorious baccarat session in May 1990, in which the Japanese high roller Akio Kashiwagi(was a wealthy Tokyo-based real estate investor who was known for the large amounts of money he wagered at Las Vegas and Atlantic City casinos.[) lost $10 million. In 2013, the Taj Mahal opened the nation's first casino strip club, featuring scantily clad dancers.
