President-elect Donald Trump's Twitter usage spurred criticism from former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who also panned the foreign policy message he sent during his campaign.

"I'm going to try to be polite," Albright said after being asked about Trump's habit of tweeting foreign policy remarks during a U.S. Institute of Peace conference panel, according to Politico. "Let me just say that I am very concerned about the tweets and generally about the messages that are going out."

"I do think there has been a system in place in the world for a very long time of how governments communicate with each other, how presidents communicate with each other, how those documents are developed," she added. "Are they part of some kind of a decision making process that does in fact reflect what the government thinks and what the Congress thinks and what the American people think?"

"And the tweets don't deal with that," she said.

Current Secretary of State John Kerry has also criticized Trump's tweeting, calling it a "problem" just before the panel.

"If policy is going to be made in 140 characters on Twitter and every reasonable measurement of accountability is being bypassed and people don't care about it, we have a problem," he said.

Albright also targeted Trump's use of the phrase "America First" to emphasize his focus on jobs and domestic policy.

"I think that that is a message I think we need to get out there, not as 'America First,' but as America as a partner," Albright said, referencing former President Bill Clinton's calling America an "indispensable nation."
