"In a city of 8 million, we meet face to face."

Rosie O’Donnell says she had a chance meeting with Ivanka Trump and was able to talk to her "mother to mother." O’Donnell and Trump's father, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, have a long-running, public feud in which they have traded insults for years. 

He even managed to get a shot in at O’Donnell during the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton last week. On Wednesday, O’Donnell tweeted that she bumped into Trump's daughter in New York and the two spoke; she was not specific about what they discussed. 

"@IvankaTrump in a city of 8 million – we meet face 2 face – i thank u 4 listening – mother 2 mother – on this new years week – my best 2 u,” O’Donnell tweeted, referring to the Jewish New Year.

O’Donnell has repeatedly said Donald Trump will never be president. Trump has called her numerous names, including a "pig." At press time it did not appear that Ivanka Trump had responded to O'Donnell's tweet. A request for comment from the campaign was not immediately returned.
