The billionaire Trump will meet with the former Secretary of State who backed the overthrow of Chilean President Salvador Allende.

The Republican Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Donald Trump, will meet with controversial former statesman Henry Kissinger in New York this week, the Washington Post reported on Monday.

OPINION:
The US Military Will Commit Donald Trump's War Crimes

The billionaire Trump met with former Secretary of State James Baker last Thursday and is set to meet with Kissinger, National Security Advisor and Secretary of State under President Richard Nixon, on Wednesday, the paper reports.

Kissinger, 92, played a crucial role in shaping foreign policy between 1969 and 1977, when the U.S. was at war in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, and supported the CIA-backed military coup that ousted the democratically elected socialist president of Chile, Salvador Allende.

Trump has insisted he would bomb “the hell” out of and deploy 30,000 troops to fight the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq, kill the families of alleged terrorists, and ban Muslims from immigrating to the United States.
