UPDATE 10:07 PM EST: The Associated Press reports that France President Francois Hollande says at least 77 people have been killed in the horrific attack, and is calling it an act of “terrorist character.”
Donald Trump is pushing back his big announcement following the devastating attack in France.
The presumptive Republican nominee was going to announce his Vice President pick on Friday, but has decided to postpone the conference after a truck deliberately plowed into a crowd in Nice, France, killing at least 73 people and injuring 100 others.
The large group had gathered in the street to celebrate Bastille Day when the vehicle drove into them, in what regional police are calling a terror attack.
So, in the wake of the terrible tragedy, the presidential hopeful took to Twitter to reveal that he’s going to wait to reveal whether or not frontrunners Newt Gingrich or Mike Pence will appear on his ballot, saying:
In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow’s news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by this devastating attack.
