Trump to Visit Victims of Ohio State Attack
WASHINGTON (AP) — President-elect Donald Trump is planning to travel to Ohio State University to meet with some of the victims of the recent attack that left 11 people injured.
Trump is expected to arrive in Columbus, Ohio, on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the plans but not authorized to discuss them before they are announced.
Authorities have said Ohio State University student Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, stabbed students before being fatally shot by police. He first rammed a campus crowd with his car before hopping out with a knife.
Authorities have said Artan, a Somali immigrant, was inspired by Islamic State rhetoric, but they are still investigating the claim by the militant group that it had recruited the student.
Trump has denounced the immigration policies that allowed Artan into the country.
