During the One Nation bus tour stop in New York City, according to a report by NBC New York, Gov. Palin will visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island and, as revealed earlier in the afternoon on Twitter, have dinner with Donald Trump:
Palin will meet with Trump at his personal residence tonight before they head out for a meal, a Trump aide told NBC New York. The two Republicans are friends and the meeting has "no particular agenda," according to Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump.Though the Palin-Trump meetup is being downplayed by both sides, it has sparked considerable interest, as this tweet by Jake Tapper of ABC News illustrates:
Sources tell NBC New York that Palin's highly secretive Northeast tour -- thought by some to be a leadup to a presidential campaign announcement -- will head to the Statue of Liberty by private boat early Wednesday morning, and then to Ellis Island.
So far she has visited the National Mall in Washington, Mount Vernon, Va., Fort McHenry in Maryland, Gettysburg in Pennsylvania and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia.
Palin and Trump dining tonight in NYC! Oh to be a fly in the soup! (Doing the backstroke, natch.)Update - Shushannah Walshe via Lockerz: "Just a family pizza dinner."
