There has been a great deal of talk about Hillary Clinton's experience with foreign affairs and policy, but Republican strategist Steve Schmidt isn't buying it.

"Where is America stronger in the world?" Schmidt, who served as an advisor for Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.

"Where are we more respected in the world? Where are her successes as secretary of state? There has not been a Secretary of State who had a more incompetent performance than Hillary Clinton in the modern era."

Clinton's issues, along with those of President Barack Obama, will be exploited in the general election, said Schmidt, and Donald Trump, as the front-runner, is setting the stage for that.

"This was an administration that began by sending to the United Kingdom back the Winston Churchill statue that was in the Oval Office," said Schmidt.

"Outside of Iran, outside of Cuba, where is the United States stronger and more respected internationally and globally than we were before Jan. 20, 2009?"

And as a result of the Obama administration, and Clinton as secretary of state for the first four years of it, "the world is in chaos, the country is unmoored from a global strategy and I think she was the architect over the first four years of the administration," said Schmidt.

However, show co-host Mika Brzezinski pointed out that Trump will need to pull a team around him to deal with foreign policy to make Americans feel confident, rather than hearing him saying, "I talk to myself, and I have a great brain," as he told her on Wednesday on the program.

"This is incredibly dire situation around the globe that calls for very specific language," she said.
