Henry Kissinger Will Make No 2016 Endorsement

Despite persistent rumors that Henry Kissinger planned to endorse Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state announced Friday afternoon that he will not publicly support anyone in the 2016 presidential election. “We are not making any endorsement in the current presidential election,” Kissinger said in a joint statement with fellow former secretary George Shultz. “We are dedicated to fostering a bipartisan foreign policy, and we will devote ourselves to this effort now and after the election.” During the Democratic primary race, Clinton repeatedly mentioned her friendship with Kissinger and touted his praise for her tenure as secretary of state—a point of contention during heated debates with main rival Bernie Sanders.
