While Donald Trump won’t make his vice presidential choice official until a news conference set for Friday morning, sources at CBS News confirm Trump and his running mate will give their first joint interview to CBS News’ 60 Minutes.
Sources tell us the interview will occur tomorrow afternoon at Trump Tower and will be conducted by Lesley Stahl. It will air on Sunday’s 60 Minutes which follows an hour-long CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, from Cleveland.
60 Minutes landed the first interview with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan after Romney made his pick in 2012.
According to several published reports, Trump has settled on Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, passing over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. “I’m not going to say it won’t bother me if I’m not selected,” Christie said in a conversation with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace this morning. “Of course it bothers you a little bit. If you’re a competitive person, like I am, and you’re used to winning, like I am.”
