Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. called President Donald Trump's Asia trip a "colossal flop."

Schumer's remarks came Tuesday on the Senate floor and were reported by the Washington Examiner.

"I have never been so ashamed of a foreign trip in my years. It's just inside-out," Schumer said.

He specifically cited Trump's decision not to call out the Chinese for unfair trade practices and the president's tweet about North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

On Saturday, Trump had posted on Twitter:

"He settled for a sophomoric exchange of insults on Twitter, far below the dignity of the office," Schumer said.

"Every American should be embarrassed,"

And Schumer noted: "Adding insult to injury, he seems to have a love for dictators."

Schumer appeared to be referring to Trump not criticizing Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte for human right violations, the Examiner noted.

"All in all, President Trump's trip to Asia was a colossal flop," Schumer said. "An embarrassment. He seemed far more interested in pomp and circumstance, red carpets, fancy meals, flattery of foreign leaders than advancing vital American interests in a region that's increasingly looking to China for leadership."
