Trump was expected to reveal his vice presidential choice, widely believed to be Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, at an 11 a.m. news conference. 

In an interview on Fox News's "The O'Reilly Factor," Trump also seemed doubtful about a scheduled "60 Minutes" appearance with his running mate Friday in light of the attack.

Trump said Thursday evening, as news of the attack was breaking, that he was still making a final decision. 

A truck reportedly filled with arms and explosives drove into a large crowd of people celebrating Bastille Day. Dozens were killed and many more injured. 

Trump called the attack "horrific," asking, "When will we learn? It is only getting worse."
