ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (CNN) - Another Atlantic City casino is shutting down.

Trump Entertainment and Resorts says its Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino will close its doors in September.

About 1,000 employees will lose their jobs.

Trump Plaza will be the fourth Atlantic City casino to shut down this year.

Analysts blame stiff competition from casinos in New York, Pennsylvania and other northeastern states.

Other than the name, the casino has no connection to billionaire Donald Trump.

In a Twitter post, Trump said he "Got out a long time ago."
