Trump won the state of Ohio in the 2016 presidential race.

But Clinton received 17,905 votes from Youngstown and 56,188 votes in Mahoning County, according to Vindy.com.

She edged out Trump, winning 49.9 percent of the vote in the county, compared to Trump's 46.6 percent, according to The Washington Post.

Since his presidential victory, Trump has often touted his win.

Trump made a similar claim at an earlier event in the city to honor veterans and their families.

"It's great to be back in Youngstown. It was an incredible time we had," he said.

"And you know the numbers and you saw for many, many years. ... Democrats, they win in Youngstown — but not this time."
