This is quite the scoop!
Just hours after Donald Trump officially announced that Indiana Governor Mike Pence will be his Vice Presidential running mate for the November election, we're learning that… he already regrets picking Pence?!?!?!
This morning, of course, the presumptive GOP nominee, tweeted out the news confirming he had picked Pence in lieu of a press conference:
I am pleased to announce that I have chosen Governor Mike Pence as my Vice Presidential running mate. News conference tomorrow at 11:00 A.M.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 15, 2016
A social conservative and staunch right-winger, Pence is probably a safe choice — he is mainstream enough to get the rest of the Republican Party behind Trump, and well-liked enough by conservatives to give The Donald a little credibility.
But… as it turns out, Trump doesn't like to play it safe. (Who knew?! Ha!!)
The real estate mogul apparently had some VERY serious second thoughts about Pence even just hours before he made the eventual announcement this morning!!
