Pence and Trump appeared at an unofficial kickoff event in Manhattan two days before the Republican National Convention opens in Cleveland.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Saturday introduced Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate.

Speculation has centered on the ultra-conservative Pence for several days but the Trump campaign delayed the announcement following the deadly terrorist attack in France.

Both appeared at an unofficial kickoff event to the Republican National Convention two days before it opens in Cleveland.

During the event Pence described the New York businessman as a "builder," a "fighter," and a "patriotic American" who will bring "no-nonsense leadership" to the White House. 

Trump said Pence is "a man of honor," and added he was "pleased" to have the Indiana governor join him on the ticket. The real estate mogul also said his rival, the Democrat Hillary Clinton is the "embodiment of corruption."
