Phila. boy writes harsh letter to Donald Trump

    Damien Walker, 10, was not impressed with the rooms at Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City during his birthday party over the summer.

    So, instead of letting “the Don” slide on the poor-state of the room accommodations, the Philly boy wrote Donald Trump a letter, reports Donald Wittkowski of the Press of Atlantic City.

    “Our room was worse than any room I have ever stayed in, even compared to any low budget motel,” wrote Walker in his letter.

    Walkers letter didn’t go unnoticed by the Trump company. The resort has proposed a free suite to the sixth grader and his mother to make up for their disappointing visit. But like any 10-year-old, Walker had something else in mind: free ride tickets to Trump’s amusement park and to meet “The Don” himself.
