Former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in New Jersey, once a hotspot during a decade of excess, reduced to rubble
The fall of a leader with authoritarian instincts is usually symbolised by toppled status and looted palaces. For Donald Trump, perhaps inevitably, it was the demolition of a failed casino.
On Wednesday the former Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, was reduced to rubble in 20 seconds by 3,000 sticks of dynamite. It had fallen into such disrepair that chunks of the building had been tumbling to ground.
