NEW YORK (AP) — Sarah Palin has made a brief visit to billionaire reality TV star Donald Trump, stopping by his Trump Tower condominium in New York on Tuesday before heading to dinner at a restaurant.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee stepped out of a black SUV to a crush of cameras. She greeted a few tourists and joked to reporters that she would encourage Trump to stop contributing to Democrats.

Trump announced earlier this month that he would not seek the Republican nomination to challenge President Barack Obama. Palin's own plans for the presidential race remain unknown.
