Secretary of State John Kerry returned from Brussels in time to appear on CBS Face The Nation this morning with a warning for America: World leaders are worried about the candidates who remain in the Republican presidential primary.
"Everywhere I go, every leader I meet, they ask about what is happening in America," said Sec Kerry. "They cannot believe it. I think it is fair to say that they're shocked."
Sec. Kerry made his observation after a week in which Donald Trump and Ted Cruz seemed to be intent on one-upping each other on who would be toughest on Muslims, and Trump doubled down on his promise to bring back torture. Sec. Kerry said the world leaders he meets are worried about where they are taking America.
"It upsets people's sense of equilibrium about our steadiness, about our reliability," Kerry explained. "And to some degree I must say to you, some of the questions, the way they're posed to me, it's clear to me that what's happening is an embarrassment to our country."
Here's Sec. Kerry in his own words:
