"A summit is not an accomplishment for the American president," Bash told MSNBC's Brian Williams.

"It is a major accomplishment for Kim Jong Un. In fact, the spectacle of seeing the American flags along with the [North Korean] flags as the backdrop for that handshake is really jarring actually to see, to witness. In fact, I would say it's somewhat disgusting. It is actually a debasement of the American flag," he continued.

White House slams Philadelphia mayor for ‘disgusting’ victory dance over sanctuary city ruling

  White House slams Philadelphia mayor for ‘disgusting’ victory dance over sanctuary city ruling The White House on Thursday slammed the mayor of Philadelphia’s “disgusting” celebratory dance after a court ruled in favor of the city in a fight with the Trump administration on its sanctuary city status.

Baylson said the conditions the administration placed on the city were unconstitutional, “arbitrary and capricious.

"This is a despotic regime that murders its own citizens. And so we're putting him on the same stage as the American president. Now, hopefully, it will serve a larger purpose. Which is to ensure security for American interests and our allies on the peninsula," he said.

Bash's comments come as Trump and Kim meet face-to-face, marking the first time a sitting U.S. president has sat down with a North Korean leader.

The two men shook hands for the first time on Tuesday morning in Singapore before heading off with translators to take part in a one-on-one meeting.

Prior to meeting with Kim, Trump predicted he would have a "terrific relationship" with the North Korean strongman.

"I feel really great," Trump said. "It's going to be a great discussion and, I think, tremendous success."

Kim's human rights record as a leader looms over the historic summit and has hit close to home for the president.

U.S. student Otto Warmbier died last year after being detained for 17 months in North Korea.

The Washington Post reported earlier this month that Trump spoke to the student's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier the same day he announced a date and time for the meeting with Kim.
