The best way to accomplish this is to select the non-orthagonal block and group it with itself using the Arrange menu, Group command. Now that it is a group, you will be able to trim the block orthagonally, even though it is a non-orthagonal object.
Select the Trim tool and simply cut off the corner of the non-orthagonal grouped block that is projecting into the orthagonal block. You can then select the leftover triangular piece and delete it.
