Trump Reacts to 'Horrific' Nice Attack, Postpones VP Pick

The details are still being sorted out on yet another horrific attack in France, but dozens have been confirmed dead. According to MailOnline, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump wasted no time in weighing in on Twitter.

Not too long after the story broke, Trump would fire off his first tweet.

“Another horrific attack, this time in Nice, France. Many dead and injured. When will we learn? It is only getting worse,” he tweeted.

This attack would see a truck that was traveling down the street at a low rate of speed suddenly accelerate and jump the curb, where it would plow into a large group of people that had gathered for Bastille Day festivities. A nearby witness shared some details on what transpired.

“We were at the Neptune beach and a firework display had just finished. That is when we saw a white lorry. It was going quickly at 60-70 kilometers an hour,” the witness said.

Details continue to flow in, but so far at least 77 people have been confirmed dead, and 100 more are injured. Trump jumped back on Twitter to make another announcement shortly after his initial tweet.

“In light of the horrible attack in Nice, France, I have postponed tomorrow’s news conference concerning my Vice Presidential announcement,” the second tweet said.
