Trump Camp Denies Mike Pence as VP Pick; Here’s What They’re Saying

Earlier today, The Politistick reported that sources revealed Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick to be Indiana Governor Mike Pence. The Trump campaign, however, is denying this as truth stating that Trump has not  yet made a decision, even though an announcement is supposed to be made tomorrow, Friday, at 11 am Eastern at Trump Tower.

So, why is this report, which was widely covered by numerous media outlets, being denied with a VP announcement being imminent? It is now being reported that there is a division within the Trump family as to who Donald Trump should select.

To make things more weird and confusing, this apparent indecision does not mean that Trump’s choice will not ultimately be Gov. Pence.

Ivanka, Eric, and Donald, Jr. Trump are known to have a heavy hand in the campaign serving as advisers to their father. The division within the family regarding who should be picked is supposedly “personal.”

Donald Trump, Jr. spoke with MSNBC and said that a decision will be made later today.

The horrible optics of all of this was pointed out by Amanda Carpenter.

So, who will it be? Who will get the rose? Is it actually Pence but Trump is just angry the news was leaked?

Looks like we’ll have to wait awhile longer to find out but if an introduction will be made tomorrow morning, Trump needs to come to a decisive decision and soon.
