The businessman and part-time Palm Beacher and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, will start the day

He also canceled an appearance set for later that day at a hotel near Miami International Airport where there was speculation he’d announce his running mate. Trump unveiled his partnership with Pence on July 16 in New York.
