Donald Trump's highly-criticized, crime-ridden Atlantic City eyesore, the Taj Mahal, will close after Labor Day weekend due to an ongoing strike by union members, The Associated Press reports. The hotel was opened in 1990 by Trump, although it now belongs to his friend, Carl Icahn; the hotel still prominently bears the Republican nominee's name.
