Trump tweets he was ‘very impressed’ by Indiana Gov Pence

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says he was impressed by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence during a weekend meeting.

The billionaire businessman tweeted Monday about his Saturday meeting with Pence, which took place as Trump considers potential running mates.

Trump tweeted: “Spent time with Indiana Governor Mike Pence and family yesterday. Very impressed, great people!”

Pence spokesman Marc Lotter said Sunday that the two couples had a “warm, productive” meeting before Pence returned to Indiana, but he said “nothing was offered.”

Trump has never held public office and is considering a small group of political veterans as potential running mates.

People with direct knowledge of Trump’s vetting process say the list includes Pence, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.
