Ahead of Hillary Clinton’s appearance in Atlantic City later today, the campaign of the presumptive Democratic nominee released a new attack ad against her Republican counterpart Donald Trump. The ad goes after Trump’s record in the former casino capital, pointing to accounts of the real estate magnate stiffing contractors that worked to build his three casinos in the troubled resort town.
Clinton is expected to follow a similar line of attack in her remarks at a rally in the city’s Boardwalk Hall this afternoon. The former Secretary of State is also expected to make an appearance with workers from the Trump Taj Mahal, who have been striking for the reinstatement of health and pension benefits that owner Carl Icahn cut to avoid shuttering the casino.
Trump is already getting out ahead of Clinton’s criticisms, placing the blame with Atlantic City’s Democratic city council Wednesday morning. The Trump Plaza was shuttered in 2014, andTrump Entertainment Resorts was sold at a loss in 2011.
