{IANS/WASHINGTON} – Presumptive Democratic candidate for the US presidency Hillary Clinton on Friday said that the choice of Indiana Governor Mike Pence to be Donald Trump’s running mate is further evidence of the Republican presidential candidate’s “dangerous plan for America”.

“If you had any doubts about Trump sticking with his dangerous plan for America, say hello to his VP pick,” Clinton said on her Twitter account immediately after Trump made the appointment official that had already been a well-known secret since Thursday.

Trump made the announcement on Friday on Twitter, and will address the media on Saturday. The press conference on the subject was originally scheduled for Friday but was postponed following the terrorist attack on the French city of Nice, Efe news reported.

The Clinton campaign said in a statement that Pence is “the most extreme Vice Presidential pick in a generation”, and posed the question: “Think Donald is divisive? Meet his running mate”, then brought up the presumptive VP’s history of “discriminatory politics and failed economic policies that favour millionaires and corporations over working families”.
