President Trump’s former Russia adviser Fiona Hill said Tuesday that the U.S. is “increasingly” seen as an “object of pity” by other countries.

Hill, who was a witness in Trump’s impeachment hearings, was asked on CNN by Jim Sciutto whether the U.S. was still seen as “the model that it once was for foreign populations and foreign leaders.”

“Unless we get our domestic act together, no,” Hill answered.

The former Trump adviser told CNN that the United States’ domestic issues are what’s “really eroding our standing.”

“We are increasingly seen as an object of pity including by our allies because they are so shocked about what’s happening internally, how we’re eating ourselves alive with our divisions,” she said. 

“We’re the ones who are creating all this,” she added. “It’s not the Russians or the Chinese or anyone else. We are doing this to ourselves.”
