Trumps Views on National Parks?

Now that we are deep in the campaigning phase of the fall election, environmentalists are asking the candidates about their positions toward parks and protected areas.

Don Trump, might propose adding casinos to our nation's parks to provide a steady stream of revenue.  His track record in hotels and casinos is legendary an despite only 4 bankruptcies, he might believe his economic model may be the boost our parks need.

For instance, the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey, which filed for bankruptcy in 1991, is a clear example he is willing to fail, and fail big.

But will that failure follow in our nation's parks?

Are you willing to take that gamble?
