President-elect Donald Trump will start his "thank you" tour on Thursday in Ohio, a battleground state where he delivered a victory on election night.

Trump will hold a rally in Cincinnati. An official with his transition said "he genuinely likes interacting with the American people and seeing their reaction."

During his campaign, Trump made the most visits to Ohio and Florida. He spent 17 days in Ohio after clinching the nomination on May 26 and five days there during the final month of the campaign. He plans to visit a combination of states — several he won and some where he didn't prevail as planned, according to the official.

Before kicking off the tour, Trump and Vice President–elect Mike Pence will head to Indiana on Thursday afternoon to announce that air-conditioning company Carrier has decided to keep jobs in the United States that were previously bound for Mexico.
