President Obama has canceled a campaign trip to Florida for Hillary Clinton on Wednesday due to the threat posed by Hurricane Matthew.

Mr. Obama was scheduled to travel to Tampa to talk up the Affordable Care Act, and to Miami to campaign for Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic nominee.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Mr. Obama hopes to reschedule the events “relatively soon,” depending on his schedule and the impact of the storm.

The Clinton campaign canceled the event due to the hurricane, and said it would be rescheduled.

Instead of traveling to Florida, Mr. Obama will visit the headquarters of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in Washington Wednesday to receive a briefing on the storm and an update on the agency’s preparations.
