Trump to Meet With Kissinger Tuesday
Henry Kissinger may be acting as a mediator between China and Donald Trump.
The Hill reports:
Former secretary of State Henry Kissinger will meet with Donald Trump Tuesday, according to pool reports.
Kissinger, who served under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, met with Trump after he won the presidency and earlier during the campaign.
Kissinger also met with China’s Xi Jinping on Friday, which some saw as an attempt to ease concerns there about the incoming Trump administration.
The meeting came as Trump took a phone call with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, a move that could cause friction between the U.S. and China.
On Monday, Trump also met with Robert McFarland, who served as Ronald Reagan’s national security adviser from 1983 to 1985.
Jason Miller, Trump’s transition spokesman, told the pool McFarland had a “great discussion with the president-elect’s national security team.”
