Bachmann to have 4th meeting with Donald Trump on Monday in New York

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann will meet with real estate mogul Donald Trump on Monday in New York City, her spokeswoman said Sunday.

The meeting will happen at Trump Tower. It will be the fourth meeting between the Minnesota congresswoman and the reality TV star.

"He called the other day ... and she'd mentioned she was going to be in New York," Bachmann Communications Director Alice Stewart told CNN. "It should last about an hour or so."

Bachmann will also tape a show for NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Stewart said.

Bachmann and Trump last met October 13 in New York.

Earlier this year Trump announced he would not mount a run for the White House, but only after gaining much attention for flirting with a bid, harshly criticizing President Obama and stoking "birther" theories by calling for the release of the president's birth certificate.

Since then, many GOP candidates have paid visits to Trump.

    These candidates keep meeting with D. Trump when they should be meeting with those who have run successful campaigns in the past if they are serious about running. Trump eats up the publicity but with the birther issue he lost any credibility he may have had otherwise. Strange bedfellows.

    Now I've heard it all! Michelle Bachmann and Captain Comb-over! Now there's a 3rd party candidacy for you. I think this could be a social Darwinism experiment. Anyone who votes for this ticket could be euthanized for the good of the American gene pool. Get serious.

    I don't get why all these Republicans want to meet Trump. His financial background is sketchy at best and it's not like he has the backing of the republican base. Strange. :)
