Palin meeting with Trump in New York

(CNN) – Add Trump Tower to the list of historical sites that Sarah Palin plans to visit during her “One Nation” bus tour.

Palin has scheduled a private meeting with none other than Donald Trump on Tuesday evening at the real estate magnate’s sprawling Trump Tower residence in Manhattan.


Palin and her husband Todd will then have dinner with Trump and his wife, a Trump adviser confirmed to CNN.

It’s something of an unusual detour for the bus, which has kept to a strict itinerary of historic sites like Mount Vernon and Independence Hall since it began its tour on Monday.

The tour, according to Palin’s website, is designed “to educate and energize Americans about our nation's founding principles, in order to promote the Fundamental Restoration of America.”

Palin and Trump have at least a few things in common, notably their starring roles in hit reality television shows and a knack for keeping the political world guessing about their presidential ambitions.

Trump recently decided not to pull the trigger on a bid for the Republican nomination, while Palin continues to say that she is seriously considering a run.

Palin was also quoted recently saying that she appreciated Trump’s high-profile effort to obtain President Barack Obama’s long-form birth certificate, though she has said repeatedly that she believes the president is a citizen of the United States.

– On Monday, June 13, CNN will host the first New Hampshire Republican Presidential Debate, live from Manchester, NH at 8 p.m. ET. Follow all the issues and campaign news leading up to the debate on CNNPolitics.com and @cnnpolitics on Twitter.

    Isn't it a stretch to call Trump Tower a historical landmark?!

    Looks like the run for the white house will be mixed with ample supply of comic relief...again.

    Will there be enough space in the room for BOTH of their egos? There certainly will be for the combined intelligence.

    Yeah, maybe the two losers should run on the same ticket. They sure would make a fantastic ticket – Izzy and Moe.

  17. Lost in Texas FOREVER

    She's got the free time to go see Donald Trump and ride around DC on motorbikes, BUT doesn't seem to have time to go visit Joplin where the people there are in need. In fact I don't think ANY of the so-called 2012ers have been there and yet were critical that President Obama was at the G8 and didn't turn around and head home. At least he DID go there directly from Europe. Look at some of these 2012ers Romney, Palin, Cain all MILLIONARES and could donate money to help these Americans and that would make some even consider voting for them. And come to think of it Trump could drop a few dollars there himself. Pity.

    The only people that seem to be concerned with ANYTHING concerning Silly Sarah is the media. Try ignoring her, see what she does when she is ignored. She is boring, misinformed, an exaggerator, and what is worse, she is an out and out liar. Time for her 15 minutes of fame to be over

    OMG. Yet another sequel to "Dumb and Dumber". Just adding my voice to those who've already made that kind of comment.
    These two are legends in their own minds.
