White House confirms Trump to visit Cincinnati today


President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will visit Cincinnati today, the White House confirmed.  

The White House did not offer details on where the president will speak. Sources say the president will be visiting a small business to talk about the tax overhaul he signed last December. 

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, will appear with the president, according to Portman's office.

Trump's last visit to Cincinnati was June 7, when he spoke at Rivertowne Marina, touting his $1 trillion proposal to invest in America’s infrastructure.

That plan was never put into place, but in his State of the Union address on Tuesday, Trump increased to $1.5 trillion that amount he wants to spend on Americas roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

Trump also campaigned in Cincinnati in October 13, 2016 at U.S. Bank Arena and visited again on Dec. 1, 2016, during his “thank you” tour after he won election.
