Day 6 Atlantic City plans on saying goodbye to Trump Plaza with a bang — literally. They didn't want to take care of workers, and we get the final result that we have now. Over the years, largely due to Trump's own recorded history of financial mismanagement — and competition from the Trump Taj Mahal, which would serve as the crown jewel of his properties in Atlantic City — the Trump Plaza's revenues declined sharply, ultimately leading to its closure in September For six years, the building remained empty, literally falling to ruin, until an implosion was commissioned by Icahn Enterprises.
