Trump Postpones Veep Announcement After Apparent Attack In France


Donald Trump says on Twitter that he is delaying the announcement of his running mate following the deadly truck attack in France.

After a day of speculation about who might join Trump atop the Republican Party’s presidential ticket, Trump tweets on Thursday night: “In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow’s news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement.”

Trump had been scheduled to unveil his pick at an 11 a.m. news conference at a hotel in midtown Manhattan.

Late Thursday, a truck drive onto the sidewalk and plowed through a crowd of revelers who’d been gathered to watch Bastille Day fireworks in Nice, France. Authorities say dozens of people are dead.
