Donald Trump met with Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in New York on Wednesday, the latest in his efforts to strengthen his foreign policy bona fides.

Trump’s motorcade rolled into Kissinger’s home around 3 p.m. where the low-profile meeting that lasted about one hour. Trump aides say the presumptive GOP presidential nominee and 92-year-old diplomat have spoken over the phone multiple times, and Trump requested the face-to-face.

The gathering follows Trump telling Reuters he “would have no problem” speaking to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to prevent nuclear proliferation. Such a conversation would mark a major shift in US policy towards Pyongyang.

Trump met with another well-known GOP diplomat, James Baker, last week.
