Henry Kissinger, who served as National Security Adviser and Secretary of State under Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, and George Shultz, who was secretary of state under President Ronald Reagan, told Politicothe two have discussed publicly backing Clinton. 

"We are going to do it together," Shultz told Politico of a possible joint endorsement. "It will have more impact." 

Shultz also said "no" when asked if there was still time for Trump to earn an endorsement.

Shultz added that he was impressed by Clinton, nothing a "deep knowledge of Mexico."
