Washington: Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday postponed the announcement of his vice presidential candidate in wake of terrorist attack on Bastille Day crowd in Nice city of France, which left 75 dead and over 100 injured.

Trump, on Wednesday, had declared on twitter that he would announce his running mate in New York on July 15.
Although there was no word from the Trump campaign yet, but media speculations have pitched Indiana Governor Mike Pence as most likely candidate.

“Donald J Trump’s campaign has signalled to Republicans that he will pick Gov Mike Pence of Indiana as his running mate. It is seen as a cautious choice,” media reported.

At the same time it cautioned that Trump, known for his unpredictability, may still backtrack.Fox News said Pence, who has spent quite substantial amount of time in the last few days with Trump including campaigning together, is abandoning his re-election bid as Indiana Governor.

He was elected as the Indiana Governor in 2013.

Before this he was a member of the US House of Representatives for 19 years from 2003 to 2013.
