Secretary of State Michael Pompeo canceled a brief trip to Belgium set for Wednesday, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The trip, in the works for several weeks, was scrapped Tuesday, a day after it was announced by the State Department, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private deliberations. Pompeo had tweeted about his planned travel earlier Tuesday.
