ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. --- As of 5:59 a.m. Oct. 10, the Trump Taj Mahal casino in Atlantic City will close.

It's another pockmark on the struggling city's gaming industry that puts nearly 3,000 workers out of a job and shines a light on one of the final remnants of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's hand print on the city.

The Trump Taj Mahal was the site of numerous industry trade shows from 1998 to 2012 under the former Limo Digest Show brand, and then its successor Chauffeur Driven in 2013 and 2014. Donald Trump was the keynote speaker at the 2005 show in October that year.

    Uber will continue to operate and ignore the rules. This is their M.O. in every situation like this. They praise innovation when regulators give them the green light and shun it when it doesn't go their way. What Uber is doing is nothing new or innovating. It just a new method of dispatch. Regulators shouldn't bend over every time a new one is created.
