Trump postpones VP announcement in light of France attack

Donald Trump will postpone his Friday vice presidential announcement following a deadly attack in France Thursday.

“In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow’s news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement,” Trump said in a tweet.

Trump was expected to reveal his vice presidential choice, widely believed to be Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, at an 11 a.m. news conference.

In an interview on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Trump also seemed doubtful about a scheduled “60 Minutes” appearance with his running mate Friday in light of the attack.

Trump said Thursday evening, as news of the attack was breaking, that he was still making a final decision.

    It’s kind of amazing the amount of great comments Trump is getting just for acting like a grown-up.

  • Bob says:

    As long as he doesn’t follow the “McCain Model” and “suspend” his campaign for every thing that comes down the pike (Obama getting the nod, returning to DC to vote on a bill {which Sen Obama blew off, as usual}, etc)

    Today is decision day for Gov. Pence. From what I’ve read he must decide whether to run for re-election or not.

    I understand Donald’s concerns but he needs to make a decision. He can wait until the convention to announce his choice; this will not be the first time a running mate has been chosen during the convention. When I heard of the delay I was reminded of Sen. John McCain’s multiple suspensions of his presidential campaign for various reasons. The voters decided to choose someone whose campaign kept going and who had answers.

    This is showing class and respect for the people of France, something that the brown clown lacks in many ways! He’s one of the few that can take something bad and make it worse with one of his pathetic speeches!

      Rodney — Please show some respect! It’s a capital “B” and “C.”

        I thought respect was something U earned!! 🙂 🙂

      I think you’re really going to miss Obama. Once he leaves office, you’ll have nothing else to say. You can turn ANY subject into an Obama rant. Good luck to you.

      1. Rodney Steward says:

        There will be another idiot to come along, and pray it’s not Hellary!!

        1. I Seigel says:

          So you’d prefer the idiot Trump to the idiot Clinton? I’m ok with that.

      2. Bob says:

        Could be like Obama and keep blaming everything he does on Bush, even after 8 years of his policies failing. (Just cook the books to make it look better)

        1. I Seigel says:

          I’m not sure what you mean. Are you saying that Obama keeps blaming his problems on Bush, or Obama’s supporters keep doing that? I haven’t heard Obama mention Bush in many years.

          If you’re denying that there were a heap of problems that happened during the Bush years and that Obama inherited, then you have a very short memory.

          Let’s say, God forbid, that there’s a big terrorist attack in the US a few months after Trump or Hillary takes office. Will you be blaming Obama?

          1. louann says:

            Yes I will blame Obama . Why? Cause he brought all
            this on. Hillary will be worse. Why ? Because she’s a liar
            greedy power hungry wo men. Bush is the same . I dont want
            to pee next to a man.i dont want my head cut off
            cause I’m against Islamic terrorist. I dont want my grandchildren
            to be told there born racist. I dont want another
            flag on our state capital. I want law and order. Watch
            open gates Germany you tube. This is coming to USA.

          2. Bob says:

            No, Obama does not directly blame Bush. He just keeps talking about what “we inherited” for 8 FREAKING YEARS. His minions directly blame Bush, but not Obama. Never his fault. The “shovel ready jobs weren’t all that (heh heh) shovel ready” was not his fault. The lies of “health care cost will come down” and “if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” were not his fault either.
            As for blaming him if a few months after Trump is elected, will I blame him, no I would not, just like I did not blame Clinton for 9/11. If, on the other hand, it is done by some one we had in Gitmo and he ordered released, then yes I would hold him responsible for the release, but the terrorist act would be the blame of the person who did it, not the President, neither Obama or Trump, unlike those who have blamed Bush for all the ills of the world since 1999.
