Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch says a number of today's political leaders lack leadership abilities and have splintered the nation.

"It has become extremely hard for us to put ourselves in someone else's shoes, because the examples of leadership we are seeing today are not doing that either," Lynch said Friday in an address at Harvard University.

"We're in a situation now where not only are we not able to talk to each other, but the country is very divided."

Lynch also spoke of her controversial meeting with former President Bill Clinton during the 2016 presidential race — a powwow that occurred as Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was under a Justice Department investigation. She called it a "very public mistake."

Lynch's comments, reported in The Harvard Crimson newspaper, were made during a John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum at the Ivy League school's Institute of Politics.

A 1984 graduate of Harvard Law School, Lynch was attorney general under former President Barack Obama.
