President Trump’s former trophy casino, the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, N.J., will begin its liquidation sale Thursday prior to being gutted to allow for the construction of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Trump once referred to the Taj Mahal as “the eighth wonder of the world.”
Items for sale include furniture, poker tables, grand pianos, art and the casino’s famous crystal chandeliers that Trump purchased from Austria.
The National Content Liquidators will conduct the sale, which will continue until all items have been sold.
The Taj Mahal debuted in 1990 as the largest casino in the world, and the highest-grossing casino in Atlantic City until the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa opened in 2003. Following several bankruptcies and a labor dispute with its union workers, the Taj Mahal officially closed in October 2016.
Hard Rock purchased the casino in March for $50 million from billionaire investor Carl Icahn, and plans to open their hotel and casino next summer.
