Michael MacLeod owns a 40-person studio that made the giant elephant statues at Trump’s Taj Mahal casino entrance.
“We got next to nothing,” says MacLeod, “I took a big hit”.
MacLeod says his anger has faded.
Giving a slide presentation of his work to an architectural firm two days after Trump swept the New York Republican primary in April, he slipped in two photos — one showing one of the elephants, the other showing Trump’s name on the casino marquee in red lights.
“This guy never paid me,” MacLeod deadpanned. Everyone laughed.
