Mitt Romney Next Up to Meet Donald Trump

Sep 17, 2011 12:29pm

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has requested — and been granted — a meeting with Donald Trump on Sept. 26 in New York City, sources close to Trump confirm to ABC News.

Romney’s meeting with Trump, first reported by the Washington Post, will come about two weeks after Texas Gov. Rick Perry met with the real estate mogul at his Manhattan apartment.

According to one of Trump’s top aides, it was Romney who asked for the meeting “several weeks ago” — before Perry’s meeting happened but after it became known that the Texas Governor was speaking with Trump.

Trump has yet to endorse a candidate because his aides say he has not actually decided whether he will pursue a bid for the White House. He is waiting to meet all the candidates who wish to speak with him before making that decision, according to the source.

While Perry was taken to Jean Georges restaurant and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to a pizza parlor in Times Square by Trump, there is no word yet on where Romney will be taken, just that a dinner offer will certainly be extended.
