The White House announced that President Donald Trump will  be in Granite City on Thursday. Trump’s visit is to highlight the U.S. Steel plant that was re-opened back in March.

This will be an official visit and not campaign related. Vice President Mike Pence was just in O’Fallon last Thursday to raise money for U.S. Congressman Mike Bost. The U.S. Steel plant is in Mike Bost’s district and the congressman is expected to be with the President on Thursday.
