Octavian Caesar was not a particularly nice individual, but he knew power, and became Augustus. Thomas Beckett was not particularly religious, but became Arch-Bishop of Canterbury and a saint. It seems to me, that Dr. Kissinger was trying to say, that the times, and the person, are such, that what started as one way for the country to be, for the presidency to be, and for our sense of who we are, and how things should be, is very ripe for a change. Just what direction that change will take is to difficult to point out with any specificity. What is important is to keep the issues that are important before one, especially the public, and those in politics. Those issues are how to maintain order and stability, both in the U.S., and in the world, through various organizations that have been set up, over the decades past. Trump himself may be a passing fashion, what he has uncovered, or brought into the sunlight, is important, and needs urgent attention, if the safety of the U.S. and the world are to be preserved.
