Rice chides Trump for criticism of judges, media

The former Bush-era Secretary of State - now plugging her new book, "Democracy" - argued on "Fox and Friends" that tearing down statues honoring slave owners was merely "sanitizing" USA history.

Rice said, "We do need to understand what was going on before the inauguration of the president" in January. When you are credible about Syria, by having made that strike.it got the Chinese's attention. "And indeed, I do think that America was born with a birth defect; it was slavery".

Rice also weighed in on warnings that Obama administration officials, including from the former president himself, gave Trump about his former advisor, Michael Flynn, and Flynn's ties to Russian Federation.

"Enough! Donald Trump should not be President", Rice said then on her Facebook account.

Rice went on to say "reckless" North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un could even be classified as "unhinged". "She was the vehicle for criticizing his elections", Ms. Rice said.

Min Bahadur Sherchan died at the base camp on Saturday evening, officials said, with the cause of death not immediately clear. He went on to be an apple farmer and constructed roads and dams before settling to down to manage hotels in Kathmandu .

"One of the points that I make in the book is, it took us a long time".

Rice, who has interspersed periods in public service with academic posts, suggested Trump, a NY real estate magnate, may see foreign policy more in terms of striking deals than finding common interests.

Rice seemed to support Trump's presidency, however, and noted that it was in the hands of USA citizens to be "smart".

"Don't let him get the satisfaction of thinking we don't believe our own elections to be legitimate", she said.

"As a matter of principle, you can talk to anybody in that period, but you should never suggest that you might be making policy and maybe they should just wait until there's a change in administration".

The road to freedom in the United States has been long and violent, but ultimately, it has meant that Americans have been "expanding the definition of 'we the people, '" said Rice.
