Story highlights

"We have examples of the kind of discussion that's in the gutter. It's really embarrassing," Albright said

International situation will get more complicated ahead of Election Day, she said

(CNN) —  

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Wednesday that Republican presidential candidates sound like schoolchildren arguing rather than potential leaders of the free world.

“I am a mother, now a grandmother. It all sounds kind of like children in a school yard calling each other names,” she said on CNN’s “New Day.” “We have examples of the kind of discussion that is in the gutter, and it’s really embarrassing.”

“I’m embarrassed by the kinds of things that are being said, because it does not speak well for our country – that in fact is one that wants to be a leader and has been exceptional in our leadership abroad,” Albright added.

Albright said international leaders tell her that they are “worried” about the future of global politics if Republican front-runner Donald Trump is elected president.

“I was in the Middle East – I was in Tunisia and Egypt and Jordan and Saudi Arabia – and people really asked, ‘What is going on? How can we be having a discussion in which foreign policy kind of is not at the center of things,’ ” she said. “Whenever anything is said by Donald Trump, it is scary, I think, in terms of what he thinks he’s going to do or (his) lack of understanding.”

Albright, who has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, said, “the international situation is going to get even more complicated” ahead of Election Day.
