Donald Trump, the ”Celebrity Apprentice” host and GOP kingmaker — or queenmaker, perhaps — will join Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann on Monday for a nationwide tele-town hall, her campaign announced Saturday.

“During the call, Bachmann and Trump will discuss critical economic issues facing American families and businesses,” according to a release from the campaign, “while taking questions from the listening audience.” (RELATED: Bachmann joins 3 others in threat to boycott Nevada caucus)

While most of the Republicans running for president have ventured to New York City to visit with Trump, Bachmann’s campaign said this is the first time he has joined a 2012 candidate on a tele-town hall.

The real estate mogul considered his own run for the Republican presidential nomination earlier this year.
