UPDATE @ 1:10 p.m.: Ivanka Trump toured Middletown Tube Works and met employees during a stop today in Middletown.

Middletown Tube Works is a female owned, family run business that provides American manufacturing jobs, according to the Trump campaign.

Its owner, Angie Phillips, was one of 17 business owners in the region who met with Donald Trump last month in Dayton.

Jocelyn Bucaro, chair of the Butler County Democratic Party, addressed the media prior to Ivanka Trump’s visit, saying, “hiding behind his daughter’s visit to an Ohio steel company will not change Donald Trump’s record of purchasing Chinese steel while Ohio steel companies went out of business and Ohio workers lost their jobs.”

During a visit to Dayton last month, Donald Trump denounced trade deals as disastrous and said China in particular has unfair trade practices.
