Clinton visits Atlantic City boardwalk to hit Trump on casino bankruptcies

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Clinton takes the stage for a campaign speech outside the shuttered Trump Plaza in Atlantic CityBy John Whitesides ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton visited the famous boardwalk in Atlantic City on Wednesday to highlight Republican rival Donald Trump’s casino bankruptcies, warning he would bring the same cutthroat approach to managing the U.S. economy. Clinton, standing next to the shuttered Trump Plaza casino that Trump once owned, said the real estate developer routinely profited from the financial ruin of workers in the economically depressed seaside resort town. “The people he’s trying to convince to vote for him are the same people he’s been exploiting for years – working people, small-business people,” Clinton said.
