Paul was spotted with Trump Sunday morning on the way to Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., for a round of golf, during which the White House said the pair, along with White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney, would discuss a "variety of topics," including healthcare.
The president tweeted earlier Sunday that "talks on Repealing and Replacing ObamaCare are, and have been, going on."

The Kentucky Republican clashed with the president over the Republicans' initial plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, which Republican leaders ultimately pulled in defeat before there was a vote. Paul was among the lawmakers adamant that the bill would not have enough support in the House or the Senate.
Paul had knocked the plan as "ObamaCare lite" and insisted that conservatives in Congress would not have allowed it to pass.
Prior to the bill's defeat, Trump tweeted that he believed Paul would "come along" with Republicans on their healthcare proposal.
I feel sure that my friend @RandPaul will come along with the new and great health care program because he knows Obamacare is a disaster!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 8, 2017
