Donald Trump Wants His Name Off of Casinos

US based business mogul Donald Trump is suing the owners of the casinos he previously owned as he wants to have his named removed from the Trump Plaza and Trump Taj Mahal.

Trump sold his remaining interest in the casinos more than five years ago, and is trying to get his name removed as there is confusion as to whether or not he is involved in operations.

"I want it off both of them," Trump said to the Associated Press. "I've been away from Atlantic City for many years. People think we operate (the company), and we don't. It's not us. It's not me."

The Trump Plaza is gearing up to possibly close on September 16th, costing hundreds of New Jersey residents their jobs as the casino has struggled to operate.

Court documents related to he case read: "Since Mr. Trump left Atlantic City many years ago, the license entities have allowed the casino properties to fall into an utter state of disrepair and have otherwise failed to operate and manage the casino properties in accordance with the high standards of quality and luxury required under the license agreement.

"The Trump name ... has become synonymous with the highest levels of quality, luxury, prestige and success."
