Schumer: Trump entering North Korea to meet with Kim 'one of the worst few days in American foreign policy'

Washington (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday hit President Donald Trump over his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday, calling it "one of the worst few days in American foreign policy."

Trump's visit with Kim was a moment that marked the first time a sitting US president has set foot in North Korea but it produced only an agreement between the two nations to restart talks about North Korea's nuclear ambitions. Schumer took issue with how little Trump received for a visit that he viewed as a concession.

"He admires these strongmen," Schumer told CNN's Anderson Cooper on "Anderson Cooper 360" Tuesday. "He doesn't have principles about what rule of law is, what a democracy is. You know, Anderson, this was one of the worst few days in American foreign policy, in American diplomatic history, in a long time."

Schumer called the meeting an extension of Trump's "erratic" foreign policy, which "hurts us in the long run."

Oh the drama!    Somebody get Chuckie some smelling salts.   *****rollingeyes*****

No, it wasn't the worst day in foreign policy or worst anything else.  I just think it was a publicity stunt.  It certainly didn't result in any kind of meaningful agreement.  NK is still building up its arsenal.

Had Obama done this, Schumer would be calling it one of the best days in American foreign policy, worthy of a Nobel Prize.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.
