What goes up must come down … eventually.

Former President Trump’s defunct Trump Plaza hotel and casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was demolished on Wednesday.

Trump hasn’t been associated with the hotel since 2009, according to the New York Times. The hotel had been closed for several years before its ultimate demise.

Spectators lined up in the cold to watch the building come tumbling down. The cost to watch the show? A whopping $10, according to the Times.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
