Will Mitt Romney Dine With Donald Trump Thursday?

Ethan Miller/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- So, what exactly is Mitt Romney doing on Thursday? Is he dining with The Donald or will Trump have to dine alone?

It’s all a bit of a mystery as Donald Trump’s camp is saying The Dine with Donald Raffle winner- whose identity is not known – will dine with Romney and Trump tomorrow. The meal will be held at The Pierre at the private residence of stock investor and financial analyst Martin Zweig.

Later on Thursday night, Romney has a $50,000 a head fundraiser at the same residence at The Pierre Hotel in Manhattan.

But, that’s not what the Romney camp is saying. They actually aren’t commenting on the Thursday events to ABC, although Trump took to Twitter to promote the events. The event is a fundraising raffle where small-dollar donors from all over the country got a chance to enter to win and have dinner with Trump and the presumptive GOP nominee.

It’s the same day the Supreme Court will rule on the constitutionality of the president’s health care legislation.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted, “Looking forward to the “Dine with Mitt and Donald” this Thursday. Can’t wait to meet the lucky winner. @MittRomney”

Romney aides did not respond to questions from ABC News as to whether the meal with Trump and the winner is happening Thursday.

The two last appeared together in May at a fundraiser in Las Vegas.  It was the day before Romney racked up enough delegates to become the party’s presumptive nominee, but it was overshadowed by the reality show and real estate tycoon’s comments about President Obama’s citizenship.

Trump belongs to a group that believes the president was not born in this country and therefore is not a “natural born citizen” as required by the Constitution to be president of the United States.

The president released his birth certificate last April, but some still question its legitimacy.
