It was in Youngstown where Trump delivered a 2016 speech about combatting 'radical Islamic terrorism.' He won the state in his victory over Hillary Clinton, padding it with victories in Michigan and Wisconsin.
Trump has spoken about gains against ISIS, as U.S.-backed Iraqi forces recaptured Mosul.
Trump's trip comes days after the collapse of one of his top domestic campaign priorities, the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.
'The thing that's dead here is Obamacare' said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday.
The effort failed after two Republicans, Sens. Jerry Moran of Kansas and Mike Lee of Utah, announced they would not back a bill supported by GOP leaders and the president, depriving the GOP of a simple majority.
Trump outlined his new strategy at the White House Tuesday: let Obamacare fail.
He said during an impromptu photo-op at the White House that 'I've been saying for a very long time, 'Let Obamacare fail and then everybody is going to have to come together and fix it, and come up with a new plan, and a plan that is really good for the people with much lower premiums, much lower costs, much better protection'' Trump said.
