ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Trump Entertainment Resorts Inc. has laid off about 250 employees at its Atlantic City casinos.

Chief Executive Officer Bob Griffin said those laid off include executives and hourly workers at Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort, Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino and Trump Marina Hotel Casino.

Griffin told The Press of Atlantic City that Wednesday’s cuts are expected to be the last in the company’s restructuring. However, he wouldn’t rule out future layoffs if needed.

Trump Entertainment emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in July under the new ownership of corporate bondholders.

    What does this have to do with Donald Trump? He doesn’t own the casinos anymore after they filed for bankruptcy earlier this year. A picture of the casinos would be more appropriate.

    Trump should do an apprentice show with the people he laid off giving them a shot at something different
