Donald Trump's visit to North Korea marks the first time a sitting US president has set foot in the country.

But has it been a success, or will it ultimately hurt the United States?

In an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper, Senator Chuck Schumer called Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un "one of the worst few days in American foreign policy in a long time."

Schumer remarked that the meeting, in which the two leaders agreed to restart nuclear talks, accomplished very little.

He accused Trump of "praising dictators, messing up foreign policy left and right, what he did in North Korea giving Kim Jong-un what he wanted, calling him a friend, patting him on the back, and getting nothing, absolutely nothing in return."

Cal Thomas and Marion McKeone discussed this in our US slot, as well as why the United States women's soccer team are not so keen to meet Trump after the World Cup.
