“Our allies don't know what to make of us,” Rice, who also served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under former President Obama, said during an episode of "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

“The president of the United States is a liar and the whole world knows it. We’re incompetent,” she said.

“I'm deeply, deeply concerned that if we had four more years of this, we would not be an America that anybody can recognize,” Rice said. “The situation would be unsalvageable, our national security and standing in the world irreparably damaged.”

Rice said that she’s not exaggerating when she says, “It's really a life or death situation we're in.”

"It's not too extreme a statement to make, both domestically and internationally," Rice said. "We can't lead if others don't want to follow us, and that's the risk that we face with four more years of Donald Trump."
