[NEW YORK (AP) – Donald Trump is introducing Mike Pence as his running mate, calling Indiana’s governor “his first choice” to join him on the Republican presidential ticket.
Trump spoke with Pence on Saturday morning in a ballroom of a New York City hotel, a day after first introducing his choice for vice president in a Friday morning tweet.
The billionaire businessman strode first onto the stage that featured a backdrop of 10 American flags. The event did not feature any new “Trump-Pence” signs, instead displaying the standard “Trump” podium sign.
The presumptive GOP presidential nominee was cheered by a crowd of several hundred friends and local Republicans. He said he would champion “law and order” in the wake of this week’s terror attack in France.
He says of the new Republican ticket, “we are the law and order candidates.”
