#Donald Trump introduced Indiana Gov. Mike #Pence as his running mate on Saturday, calling him “my partner in this campaign” and his first and best choice to join him on a winning #Republican presidential ticket.
Skipping the traditional massive rally in favor of a low-key announcement in a Manhattan hotel, Trump tried to draw a sharp contrast between Pence, a soft-spoken conservative, and #Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate. In fact, he spent about as much time lambasting #Clinton as praising Pence, declaring she had led President Barack #Obama “down a horrible path” abroad. “He’s a solid, solid person”: Donald Trump officially introduces Mike Pence as his running mate – Salon.com
The truth is that if you actually witnessed the endorsement, as we discuss in our show, it is evident that this was not a very enthusiastic endorsement. Trump did not hold hands with Mike Pence in the typical ticket presentation – you know the ones that look like a team. He walked off the stage after introducing Mike Pence, which is something Trump usually will not do. Trump’s initial announcement of Mike Pence was via twitter. Allegedly it was because of the Nice Terror attacks that Trump cancelled a previously set announcement of rolling out Mike Pence. The whole thing was anti-climatic.
