“In light of the tragic shooting, [U.S. Housing and Urban Development Department] Secretary Ben Carson and Adviser Ivanka Trump are postponing their planned visit to Youngstown, as they join Ohioans and people across the country in mourning those impacted by the horrific events that unfolded in Dayton, Ohio early this morning. Police and first responders must be able to allocate all available resources to assist the investigation and support the victims and families, said Jessica Ditto, White House deputy communication director.

Secretary Carson and Ivanka expressed their condolences and support to the host, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman, R-Cincinnati, and let him know that the event will be rescheduled at a future date.”

The group was scheduled to make several stops in the Valley, including City Machine Technologies, the Youngstown Business Incubator and Stambaugh Auditorium.
