One of the primary things people consider in their vote is someone's character. Donald Trump is asking for a vote this season, and people commonly cite(1)(2) his ownership of strip clubs as indicative of his poor moral judgement.

Which strip clubs does he own? He wants his name removed from the Atlantic City casinos, so perhaps he doesn't endorse their behavior or have a direct say in their operations. Does he own or has he ever owned any directly?

    Can you cite examples of people claiming that he owns strip clubs?

    For what it's worth, the Trump Taj Mahal did open a strip club in 2013, but Trump himself is no longer associated with it (aside from the use of his name) and I think he wasn't at the time. Doesn't mean he does or doesn't own other strip clubs.

    I'm not entirely sure it matters. There comes a point when you have enough fingers in enough pies that you can't say what a lot of them are. He might not know what all his holdings are. Feb 29, 2016 at 15:52

1 Answer 1


According to Wikipedia, the answer is technically no, due to the bankrupcy of Trump Entertainment Resorts in September 2014, and he may have been aware of Trump Entertainment Resorts activities in opening the strip club in 2013.

However, he has remained associated in as much as he agreed to use of his name and likeness in perpetuity, not until no longer politically convenient.

Whilst poor moral judgement is debatable, the licensing could be interpreted as poor judgement in general.

    His Casino in Las Vegas hosts at least 2 topless reviews and a gogo club which employs dancers barely covered genitalia and pasty covered nipples. Apr 5, 2016 at 15:22

    So...still no. And not technically no, but ACTUALLY no. If you post an answer, post an authoritative answer.

    @SoylentGray I require a complete set of pictures so I can determine how outraged I should be.
