GARY, Ind. (AP) — A 300-room hotel built opened by Donald Trump's casino company in 1998 to help draw gamblers to a northwestern Indiana casino has been shut down.

The June 30 closure came as the current owner of the Majestic Star Casino in Gary is working to move it from along Lake Michigan to a location along the busy Interstate 80-94 in the city.

Spectacle Entertainment vice president Jahnae Erpenbach says that the hotel had declining occupancy and making needed renovations didn't make sense with the upcoming casino move.

President Trump says "it was a shame" the nation had to go through the investigation. Trump claims the report found "there was no collusion with Russia, there was no obstruction." In fact, Mueller did not make a determination on whether Trump committed obstruction of justice in the Russia probe. 

Trump is also lashing out at the investigation, claiming without evidence that it was "an illegal takedown that failed."

Trump spoke to reporters before boarding Air Force One to return to Washington from a weekend at his private club in Florida.

President Trump is the latest in a succession of U.S. presidents pledging unbreakable support for Israel. Last year, for instance, the US signed a $38-Billion military aid package with the Israelis even as Washington pressed Israel to make peace with the Palestinians. As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump signaled an intent to bolster Israel in even more demonstrative ways. But lately, in the early days of the Trump administration, the language of support has become somewhat less robust.
