Jumping on the criticism of President Donald Trump having potentially invited the Taliban leadership to Camp David to negotiate a peace deal, Democratic presidential candidate Julián Castro said the administration has "elevated" our enemies and terrorists.

"Even though I do support a negotiated political settlement there that will increase stability and make sure that Afghanistan is not used as a base of terrorist operations, it's very odd to invite a terrorist organization like that to Camp David," Castro told CNN's "State of the Union." "It's not in keeping with the way the United States negotiates.

"I draw a straight line between this, and the fact that he has elevated Kim Jong Un with three summits now, even though in the first summit, Singapore summit, Kim Jong Un promised North Korea would give to the United States an inventory of its weapons so that we can use that as a basis of future negotiations. They never did that. And still at the same time there was a second summit and third summit."

Castro also ripped President Trump's incessant defense of marking Alabama as in danger of a impact from Hurricane Dorian.

"It's a real embarrassment," Castro told host Jake Tapper. "I wish I could say I hope this president is going to not do that again, but again it's the same erratic behavior, destructive behavior, that is deprofessionalizing the government of the United States of America and turning us into a banana republic little by little.

"I think Americans have had enough of it and they're going to make a change in 2020."
