Donald Trump Fumes Over Not Receiving Pennsylvania Casino

Donald Trump is not a man who is used to getting denied. When he does get denied what he wants, it can turn into an ugly situation. That is the case in the state of Pennsylvania.

Trump wanted to build a casino in the state of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia's Nicetown. The casino never came to fruition thanks to the state Gaming Control Board.

Now, Trump has decided to open fire against Governor Ed Rendell. "Pennsylvania is a little too political for me. It sounds like you have to be a friend of the governor to get a casino," said Trump.

The state did not take the allegations lightly. A spokesman for Rendell claimed that Trump indeed was a friend of Rendell's. "That should put to rest any insinuations that only friends were considered for gaming licenses," said Chuck Ardo.

The Foxwoods group is the one that has caught the ire of Trump. The group was awarded a license for a South Philadelphia casino, but when it ran into opposition, the governor of the state and mayor of the city decided to move the project to downtown.

"What the governor did was outrageous. He let a group of his political friends go to another site," said Trump. Perhaps what is irritating Trump is that he too is building downtown. He will be bringing a luxury condo tower to the Delaware River project.
