(Newser) – Donald Trump had planned to reveal his VP pick at a Friday morning news conference but the big announcement has been put on hold. "In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow's news conference," Trump tweeted Thursday night as news of the attack on a Bastille Day celebration emerged. After the tweet, he told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren that a "final, final decision" has yet to be made, Politico reports, though Trump later told Bill O'Reilly that it would be "totally inappropriate" for the attack, which killed at least 80 people, to influence his choice. Before the attack, multiple sources close to the campaign said Trump had settled on Indiana Gov. Mike Pence. Trump's campaign says "additional details" are to come when the VP pick is announced.
