  • A worker posts closed signs on the lobby doors at Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino early Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014, in Atlantic City, N.J. The hotel and casino closed its doors early Tuesday, the fourth Atlantic City casino to go belly-up so far this year.

Donald Trump says he will take a serious look at taking back control of the Atlantic City casino company that bears his name

Trump told The Associated Press Tuesday that buying back control of Trump Entertainment Resorts would come down to price.

The company went into bankruptcy again this month and Trump Plaza closed at 6 a.m. Tuesday. The company has threatened to close Trump Taj Mahal in November.

Trump owns a 9 percent stake in the company and went to court last month to try to get his name removed from the properties.

Trump Plaza was the first opened by Trump in Atlantic City in 1984. Trump says he would make a determination if the faded casino was still viable to keep open if he bought back the company.
