On top of the world …in a house of cards
The tabloids tracked his every move. The business magazines predicted his demise. And the public couldn’t get enough. But the only people privy to Donald Trump’s real story were the members of his inner circle – men such as Jack O’Donnell, a top executive at Atlantic City’s Trump Plaza Casino until April, 1990. For three years O’Donnell witnessed the goings-on in the House of Trump that the people only guessed at. Now he reveals what he saw.
Here’s the inside story of Trump’s legendary tirades, his convenient forgetfulness, and the infamous Donald Trump ego. O’Donnell tells how the Plaza staff catered to Trump’s personal whims, and to those of his mistress – and how the man who built the largest gambling hall in the world knew little about running a casino.
From the hypocrisy, bad deals, and the monumental debt to the untold tales of Marla and Ivana, Trumped! rips the mask off the mighty Trump facade – revealing a man whose castle is about to collapse.
