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 and @cnnpolitics on Twitter.

    Two peas in a pod out to make publicity for themselves and claim they care about american! The very same americans, who are working class hard working small business owners, who Trump and/or his companies has gone bankrupt on many times and the Americans from Alaskan that Palin left behind.....both of them did these things because they were more focused on their own financial well being than helping any true hard working Americans. On to the next reality TV show!

  2. they call me "tater salad"

    Sarah must need a few pointers on how to be an effective "self promoter" while milking every penny she can with this whole "look at me I think I can be the President" farce..........Captain Comb-over is an expert at it, in fact it's the ONLY thing he actually succeeds at..........These 2 clowns are the biggest jokes going!

    Donald is through, for those who believe he may jump in and run at the last minute. He had to decide on committing himself to his show which will bring him millions, or run for President which would cost him even more millions. Staying out was the smart move. It is where the money is.

    They are two of the best at getting stupid people to give them money for no good reason so it makes sense they together and celebrate stupidity. Between the two of them they could not offer one viable solution to help the middle class

    I do NOT like this woman. She is all that is bad about America. Unintelligent, divisive, coy, false bravado, immoral and greedy.

    Does this not describe the far right and especially the tea party?
