Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright criticized the Trump administration on Wednesday for consisting of "all white men" and lacking key insight from women. 

Albright, who was the nation's first female secretary of State, said it was a "waste of a good resource" for the administration not to include more women, whom she said bring a unique perspective to politics and allow for "co-ed decision-making." 

"There are a lot of smart women that are very capable of making decisions," Albright told BuzzFeed News. "One of the things I have said is women work incredibly hard, having a lot of good ideas, but there needs to be more than one woman in the room."

"I do think that what is necessary is diversity, the strength of our country is diversity," said Albright, herself an immigrant from the Czech Republic. "What has been the magic of America is our welcoming of people that are not exactly the same," she said.
