The reason for the meeting, or which party initiated the meeting, has not been made public.
Sources for the Trump administration said the meeting was requested by Kasich’s office, while the governor maintains the meeting was initiated by Trump.
A spokesperson for the president said, “There’s no agenda. It’s just to catch up.”
