UPDATE: Chicago Police said Wednesday evening Donald Trump's reported visit to Chicago appears to be off and said they are no longer preparing for him to come to the city on Thursday.

DOWNTOWN — President-elect Donald Trump is expected to visit Chicago on Thursday, according to a Tribune report.

In posts on Twitter and Facebook, Trump said he would be visiting Cincinnati and Indiana in the coming days. But he'll be staying in Trump Tower in Downtown Chicago from Thursday to Saturday, according to the Tribune.

Spokespeople for Trump did not immediately return messages seeking comment. But Bloomberg News and other outlets reported that the Cincinnati stop was part of a "Thank You Tour" to states where Trump won. The New York businessman beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by a 51.3 percent to 43.3 percent margin in Ohio. Also being considered was Des Moines, Iowa.

Chicago has not been particularly welcoming to the president-elect. Among Chicago voters, Clinton was the preferred presidential candidate. In the days after the election, thousands of protesters marched around Trump Tower and chanted against him.

"We reject the president-elect!" protesters chanted.

While campaigning, Trump attempted to hold a rally at the UIC Pavilion, but protesters flooded the area and the event was canceled.
