Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump appears to have picked Indiana governor Mike Pence as his running mate for the November election.

Pence has recently compared Trump to Ronald Reagan, saying that Trump has “has connected with everyday Americans like no one since” the conservative icon who left the Oval Office in 1989.

Trump still has to face Republican delegates at the party’s national convention, which will begin on Monday, 18 July. However, it has long been assumed that Trump will carry the nomination as he is the only Republican candidate who is still campaigning.

Other vice presidential picks which the Donald was apparently considering included former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and New Jersey governor Chris Christie.
