Conservative commentator Ann Coulter said Thursday that Donald Trump would be making his "first mistake" by choosing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his running mate.
"I won't believe it, until I hear it from the Trump's mouth," Coulter said on Facebook.
"Pence is the combo-platter of disaster."

Trump said he would announce his choice on Friday — and The Indianapolis Star reported
that Pence was dropping his re-election bid for the No. 2 spot on the presidential ticket.
But Coulter, who endorsed Trump early in the campaign, was not impressed by the governor.
"He's all in for corporate America bringing in as many guest workers as they please to replace American workers, tried to sell the monster amnesty as a 'compromise bill.' (How about this compromise: We start with a wall...)," she said in the Facebook post.
"He also somehow managed to tick off both sides in gay marriage debate. After his state passed a law passed protecting Christians from having to participate in gay marriages, all hell broke loose."
Coulter was referring to last year's religious freedom bill that was attacked as being anti-gay and how Pence addressed the fallout.
"Pence thought to himself: 'I have semi heading for me. Should I just stand here? Yes, I think I'll just stand here!'" Coulter said.
"First, he allowed himself to be portrayed as a right-wing homophobic nut and then — just days later — he sold out to the left-wing activists, anyway."
She also expressed her displeasure on Twitter:
But Coulter was even less thrilled about the other top candidate that Trump was considering, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich:
