Breaking News regarding Trump's plans for hotel and casino expansions amidst a growing and hectic presidential campaign have reaffirmed suspicisions that he will not be swayed from his stance on Online Gambling, believing that the proliferation of it would be positive for both government and the people. Seems that the only way to make America Great again is with pokies. Lots of pokies.
But there's another reason why Trump is standing firm when it comes to online gambling and it has something to do with the fact he has money. Lots of money.
Sheldon Adelson & Donald Trump: Round 1
Sheldon Adelson is chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands, the largest gaming company in the world. He is worth a measley $49Billion USD and thinks that online gambling is fools gold
He is also known to have deep and generous pockets when it comes to presidential campaign support - reportedly handing out more than 116 Million USD during the last campaign.
This of course means that when he decides he doesn't like something then anyone in his pocket also agrees.
So as Sheldon assembles a team of presidential candidates who support his views on the banning of online gambling he has one Mr Donald Trump to contend with, a man who has more than enough money to fund his own campaign and is taking an opposing stance.
My question is this:
"Is Donald Trump taking this stance because of a genuine belief in the positive effects it will have overall or is he taking this stance purely out of spite?
I'm leaning towards the latter and the more I think about Donald Trump the more I realise he is a real life version of a Movie character we are all familiar with. One Mr Biff Tannen."
Allow me to make it easy for you to draw the same comparison...
This is Biff Tannen - a greedy self absorbed peanut with bad hair and an IQ that is questionable. Oh wait that's Donald Trump!.... kinda looks the same anyway.
This article on Forbes is a really interesting look at all the current Republican Presidential Candidates and looks at where they all stand on Online Gambling. Some interesting notes regarding Sheldon Adelson as well actually!
