Billionaire investor Carl Icahn is defending his management of Atlantic City's Trump Taj Mahal casino, which is in the sixth day of a strike by unionized workers.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is coming on Wednesday to Atlantic City to bash Donald Trump over his management of his former casino empire in the 1980s and '90s.

But striking workers say their beef is with Icahn, not with the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Icahn tells The Associated Press he has pumped $86 million into the Taj Mahal to save it from closing when no one else was interested in it.

He also says he offered a health care deal that was what he thought the union would agree to before the strike last week.
