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.

    So...Trump is holding court with these sad excuses for candidates. Is there a particular one he wants to influence, or are they all so silly as to actually care what this idiot thinks?

    Since when do people start taking political advise or need approval from a joke? Donald Trump? Really? I remember him sitting there trying to figure out how he could get out of the correspondents dinner while Obama and Seth Myers were making a fool out of him. Him sitting there pouting was priceless. Maybe Bachmann and Trump are comparing birth certificates.

    maybe the Donald will be honest with Michelle Bachmann and tell her to QUIT...she has NO chance at being the GOP nominee, or a VP candidate, and even if she were she would lose to Obama in a landslide. Some Tea Party groups have already suggested she shut it down, she just got read the "riot act" by some college students and even she can't explain her own stances. All she is really doing now is attacking her fellow 2012ers, which to me is fun to watch, but has to be pathetic to her GOP base.

    Bachmann has to somehow explain how she can be against government spending, while using her power as member of Congress to get $260,000 in federal dairy and corn subsidies for her family farm. Apparently assistance and government subsidies are okay for Bachmann to get, but not those Americans who are elderly, poor, disabled, or unemployed Seems Bachman's husband doesn't have a problem with collecting money from insurance companies and medicare to "wish away" homosexuality. Hypocrites!! Does she reject her Senate paycheck or her Foster Care Subsidy checks More than the specific funding requests, it is Bachmann's private acknowledgement that the EPA can facilitate positive outcomes for both the environment and the economy that stands out for conservative activists. On her campaign website, after all, Bachmann refers to the EPA as the "Job Killing Agency."While Bachmann clearly petitioned the federal government for help in multiple venues, she was incredibly unsuccessful in her efforts. Minnesota's sixth congressional district received more than $234 million in stimulus contracts, grants and loans, according to the Obama administration's Recovery .gov website. That may seem like a hefty bundle, but it ranks last among the state's eight congressional districts.Parents who wish to enroll their children in any public school in Minnesota, including Vandyke, must prove that their children have had several immunizations. These include immunizations against rubella, tetanus, polio, influenza, diphtheria, pertussis, mumps and hepatitis B. why isn't Bachmann railing about that?

    The fact that Michele Bachmann's bid for the presidency has even the remotest chance of succeeding should be seen as a divine warning to the American electorate­:

    After the planned meeting, I wouldn't be surprised Bachmann will come up with the campaign slogan of "Birth Certificate." hehe
