Reuters is reporting that “Donald Trump abruptly postponed his planned announcement on Friday of his vice presidential running mate because of a deadly truck attack in France, but Republican sources said his choice was expected to be Indiana Governor Mike Pence.”

At lease 84 people were killed when a truck driven by Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove through a crowd in Nice, France – the crowd had been watching fireworks on Bastille Day – France’s equivalent of our Fourth of July.

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said via Twitter “The city of Nice has been hit by terrorism on the day of our national holiday. Immense pain, the country is in mourning. The French will face it,” and French President Francois Hollande said “We cannot deny that it was a terror attack” in a national television address, according to CNN.

UPDATE 7/15/2016: CNN is reporting that Trump tweeted “I am pleased to announce that I have chosen Governor Mike Pence as my Vice Presidential running mate. News conference tomorrow [Sat 7/16/2016] at 11:00 A.M.”
