WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Feb 17 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump will meet Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives Paul Ryan at Trump's Florida resort on Sunday to discuss legislative priorities, White House spokeswoman Jessica Ditto said.

No further details were provided about the meeting or topics.

Immigration may come up in the Trump-Ryan meeting. The U.S. Senate rejected a series of bills on Thursday to protect young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children.

Trump is spending a long weekend in Florida. He often holds meetings with officials during regular trips to his properties outside of Washington.
