Or maybe he was just going to do it with whoever he picked?

A source w/ knowledge confirms to me that Trump and his VP pick are expected to sit down with Lesley Stahl tomorrow for Sunday's @60Minutes.

And just when you thought OK, fine, Pence it is, Trump's communications adviser said Trump had not yet made a decision.

1/2 A decision has not been made by Mr. Trump. He will be making a decision in the future…

"A decision will be made in the near future," Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign chairman said.

Re: @realDonaldTrump VP selection, a decision will be made in the near future and the announcement will be tomorrow at 11am in New York.

It did all make some for great puns, though:

I'm guessing the ticket will be nicknamed Tuppence? #Trump2016

The most "Pencive" Trump'll ever be. . .
