"We're the ones who are creating all this. It's not the Russians or the Chinese or anyone else. We are doing this to ourselves."

Her comments come on the heels of a recent Pew Research Center survey among 13 nations that found America's reputation has declined further over the past year among its key allies, with part of the decline linked to the United States' response to the coronavirus pandemic.

"What is really eroding our standing is what people are seeing happening here in the United States," Hill, who was a national security adviser until she left the administration last summer, told CNN on Tuesday.

Fiona Hill , a Harvard-educated Russia expert, has been testifying in the Trump impeachment hearings. Unlike many others speaking in the investigation into US President Donald Trump ' s dealings with Ukraine, Ms Hill has not always been a US citizen.

She said it's the "bungled handling of Covid, on top of race relations, on top of our political polarization and the spectacles that we're presenting to the outside world is what's really pushing all of this."

Hill said it would be "difficult" for NATO to survive under a second term of President Donald Trump, adding that the US needs to "revitalize our commitment to NATO."

During congressional hearings in the 2019 impeachment inquiry, Hill warned that the Republican defense of the President -- by peddling Ukraine conspiracy theories -- was in danger of extending Russia's meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
