Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said that Henry Kissinger turned down an offer to serve in his administration.

“Dr. Kissinger turned my offer down to be secretary of state. He said he’s perfectly happy doing what he’s doing,” Cain said in a video interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

“My administration will have a majority of businesspeople, as well as some seasoned office holders, who are not afraid to challenge the status quo,” he added.

Cain has called Kissinger one of his top foreign policy influences. Earlier this month, Cain had breakfast and a private foreign policy briefing in New York with Kissinger, according to ABC.

Kissinger served as secretary of state in the administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.
