Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer Charles (Chuck) Ellis SchumerLuis Alvarez, first responder of September 11, who testified along with Jon Stewart, dies Trump for US companies to sell products to Huawei House's father and Daughter of Drowned Migrant MORE (DN.Y.) Criticized President Trump's Meeting with North Korean Head of State Kim Jong Un Kim Jong UnFormer Bolton's adjutant pushes back the report on freezing nuclear weapons with North Korea The South Korean command gave Trump a personalized golf jacket. It's time for Trump to put some pressure on Kim – and John Bolton MORE for calling this "reality show foreign policy."
"This has been one of the worst days in American foreign policy and American diplomatic history for a long time," Schumer said on Monday in an interview with Anderson Cooper of CNN.
Trump wrote Sunday as the first story of Sitting US President for the Transition to North Korea.
But Schumer called on the president to call Kim a "friend" without the country making concessions on nuclear power.
"They have more atomic bombs than in the past, they are a threat to the United States, and he pats the guy on the back and gets nothing for it," said Schumer.
Schumer said Trump had criticized the previous presidents for not being able to denuclearize North Korea, but Trump's "unpredictable" policies are even more damaging to the US.
"It's the foreign policy of the reality show, he wants this photo op, he wants that little hit," said Schumer. "He did not know where or what he should go in the long run, and if anyone thinks that will hurt America in the short term and in the long run, they are sadly wrong."
Schumer's comments are in line with the comments made by Democrats seeking the 2020 nomination on Sunday during the President's visit to North Korea.
