President Cancels NEO Visit

President Donald Trump has canceled his planned trip to Northeast Ohio later this week, and hasn't given a reason why yet. 

On Monday, Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport Director Dan Dickton says he was notified that the President wouldn't be making his scheduled landing on Thursday. Dickton says he was not told why, just that it's been canceled. 

The President was flying into town to sign a joint resolution from Congress, reversing an order former-President Obama had signed placing regulations on coal mine drainage. 

Last year, the Department of the Interior finalized the Stream Protection Rule that would have protected surface water and groundwater from coal mining polution, according to them. 

President Trump, while not coming to Youngstown, is still expected to sign that resolution.
