The Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City, N.J. closed this week. The casino that was opened by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but is now owned by Carl Icahn, was the fifth Atlantic City casino to go out of business since 2014. A bill making its way through the New Jersey legislature would prevent Icahn from retaining the Taj Mahal’s casino license now that it is closed.
