Just over three weeks after US President Barack Obama beat out Republican rival Mitt Romney for a second term, the two rivals will meet again - this time over lunch.
Obama and Romney would have a private lunch at the White House Thursday in their first meeting since the election, spokesman Jay Carney said.
In his first press conference following this month's election, Obama had said he hoped to discuss with Romney some of his ideas.
"There are certain aspects of Governor Romney's record and his ideas that I think could be very helpful," Obama said, noting for example that his work running the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics could have lessons for reforming government.
Press will be excluded from the meeting.
