    President Donald Trump will no longer be making a planned trip to Milwaukee this week, sources close to the event confirm. 

    Trump was scheduled to travel to the Milwaukee area on Thursday to deliver a speech on the economy, the White House said Monday. 

    The White House did not immediately confirm the cancellation, and the reason behind the change has not been disclosed. 

    This would have been the president's first trip to Wisconsin since taking office. He last visited the state in December during his "thank you" tour before being inaugurated.
