Trump Makes His VP Pick 'Twitter Official'

Despite canceling his press conference due to the Nice attacks in Paris on Thursday night, Donald Trump finalized his choice of running mate on Twitter Friday morning. He confirmed reports that he had chosen Indiana Governor Mike Pence.

Here’s the tweet.

On Thursday, Roll Call reported that Trump had chosen Pence, but the campaign denied it, saying he had not yet made his decision. Then the Indy Star reported that Pence had decided not to seek re-election this November.

Trump confirmed the reports in his classic style, with a quick tweet.
