NEW YORK CITY, New York — Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump will confirm earlier reports that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is his pick for vice president (VP) on Friday, and the two will appear jointly together on Saturday in New Jersey, according to CNN.

Trump originally planned to announce his VP on Friday at 11 a.m. in New York City, but postponed the event due to the terrorist attack in Nice, France.

Reports surfaced on Thursday afternoon that Trump’s VP pick was Pence. Trump had reportedly been choosing among Pence, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — who he all met with earlier this week.
