AKRON, Ohio – Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is campaigning in Ohio Monday evening.

Earlier Monday Donald Trump postponed a major immigration speech he was set to deliver Thursday in Colorado as his campaign continues to fine-tune his immigration policy.

The decision came after Trump, whose hardline immigration policies appealed to many GOP primary voters, met Saturday with his Hispanic advisory council and said in an interview Monday morning that he wants to “come up with a really fair, but firm” immigration policy.

Trump denied in an interview Monday morning on Fox News that he was “flip-flopping” on the issue of illegal immigration.

A Trump campaign source said the campaign decided to push back Trump’s immigration speech as it is still fine-tuning its immigration policy and the speech’s language.

As Trump prepares to wade once more into the heated immigration debate, the campaign is taking care to craft the critical speech, which the campaign absolutely wants to get right, the source said.

Lydia Blaha, the spokeswoman for Trump’s Colorado campaign, also confirmed to CNN that Trump will not deliver a speech in Colorado on Thursday.

It is unclear when he plans to give the speech.

Trump on Monday visited a Fraternal Order of Police chapter in Ohio and is set to deliver a law-and-order-themed speech Monday night in the state.
