1130-donald-trump-getty-01Donald Trump got down to business with Mitt Romney Tuesday night at around the same time he announced he's personally going out of business.

Trump again bypassed the ever-incredulous media and tweeted, "I will be leaving my great business in total in order to fully focus on running the country in order to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN."

Trump went on to say he wasn't required to walk away from his business ... it was his choice. He said legal docs are being drafted to take him out of his business empire ... which presumably will be run by his kids. He said, "The Presidency is a far more important task."

Meanwhile, Trump's gotta be serious about making Romney Secretary of State ... he sprung for a meal at Jean Georges, a ridiculously expensive restaurant in the Trump International Hotel. Then again, he probably gets a discount. 

BTW ... they dined on garlic soup, sauteed frog legs, scallops with caramelized cauliflower and caper-raisin emulsion ... and these were the appetizers.
