(Vienna Twp., Ohio) – President Trump’s planned visit to the Youngstown area this Thursday has been called off.
WFMJ-TV is reporting that the Public Affairs Office of the 910th Airlift Wing, based at Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport was notified Monday morning that the White House has canceled the stop. No reason was given.
Trump was to have come to the Mahoning Valley to sign a bill repealing environmental regulations on coal mining. Supporters of the measure say it will keep 70,000 people working in the nation's coal industry.
The visit was originally confirmed by the operations director of the airport.
