Atlantic City, New Jersey -- Donald Trump, the private citizen, detests smoking. Donald Trump, the casino owner, is a smoking advocate.
Warning of possible legal action, the casino mogul denounced a proposed smoking ban that would prevent gamblers from lighting up while playing the slot machines and gaming tables at the city's 11 casinos.
"It's a sad day for Atlantic City," Trump said in an interview Thursday. "It puts Atlantic City at a huge competitive disadvantage with casinos in other states."
