Trump expected to visit Washington on Thursday

WASHINGTON Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is expected to be in Washington on Thursday for a private meeting hosted by his top backer in the capital, U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, three people familiar with the meeting said.

If it goes off as planned, it will be Trump’s second visit to Washington in two weeks. He was in Washington on March 21 for talks with influential Republican lawmakers in a meeting that also was hosted by Sessions.

Trump was expected to meet members of his foreign policy team, which is headed by Sessions.
