Zakaria, who is a vocal critic of Trump, went on to rip the Trump administration for its "foolish and self-defeating decision to resign as the world's leader."

"As the president might say in one of his tweets, 'sad,'" he concluded. 

Zakaria's comments come as Trump looks to wrap up his first year in office. 

The president has bucked the international community throughout his presidency, most recently in his recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. 

Trump also took a step back from the global community when he disavowed the multination Iran nuclear deal and pulled the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord. 

Supporters of the president say his policies are a part of his "America First" agenda.
