INDIANAPOLIS — President Donald Trump will make a trip to Indiana Wednesday, but Gov. Eric Holcomb won’t be in attendance.

Holcomb and the first lady previously planned to attend the Naval Seal Foundation Roundtable and Annual Dinner in Chicago.

“Given my time in the Navy, it’s [an event] that is near and dear to my heart,” Holcomb said in a statement. “However, I am glad the president is coming to Indiana to share the details of his tax reform plan.”

Despite not being able to make the event, Holcomb said he supports a tax reform.

“We must simplify, close loopholes, institute fairness and lower overall rates — especially for small businesses,” he said. “The time is now for congress to act on tax reform.”

Trump will speak in the Farm Bureau building at the Indiana State Fairgrounds Wednesday at 3 p.m. to discuss tax reform. The event is not open to the public.
