Support for and involvement in regulated online gambling

The online gaming industry may not want to immediately dismiss Trump’s candidacy.

Trump is a strong proponent of legalized online gaming. “It has to happen because many other countries are doing it and like usual the U.S. is just missing out,” Trump told Forbes in 2011.

At the time, Donald Trump and Trump Entertainment were in the planning stages of a joint online gaming venture. New York hedge-fund manager Marc Lasry was also named as a partner.

The company formed through this partnership appears to be Poker Ventures LLC. This company incorporated in Nevada and Delaware in 2012. It was incorporated in New Jersey in July 2013 between the time online gaming was legalized in New Jersey and when it went live.

Poker Ventures received a vendor license to operate in the New Jersey interactive gaming industry.

The company uses the same address as The Trump Corporation on its New Jersey vendor license and corporate filings disclose Donald Trump as the director. While Donald Trump and Poker Ventures never officially moved into the New Jersey online gaming market, his position on the issue is clear.------

trumps support for online poker is clear, ur author of this article has a strong personal bias against trump since he dont care for BLM. so she neglects to mention his strong lifetime support of online poker legalization.

1. This article was all about Johnson. She didn't leave out Trump because of a bias against him, but because she covered Trump and Clinton in the previous article, here:

2. Trump's cozying up to Sheldon Adelson can't mean anything good for online gaming.

3. Trump is so wildly inconsistent on his positions on every issue that it's folly to trust that he would govern in accordance to any campaign position, even where he has made a specific promise to do so. And on this subject, he hasn't even made any explicit promise.
