The meeting sparked fresh speculation of a Palin-Trump ticket.
‘She didn’t ask me [to run with her] but I’ll tell you, she’s a terrific woman,’ Trump said as he ushered Palin into the branch of Famous Famiglia pizza on Broadway at 50th Street.
A spokesman for Trump said that it was the former Alaskan governor who had requested the meeting.
A source familiar with the dining decision told ABC News that it was also her decision to eat at the restaurant. ‘She wanted pizza,’ he said.
Palin greeted a few tourists and joked to reporters that she would encourage Trump to stop contributing to Democrats.
