Still, US National Security Advisor John Bolton told CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday that the summit should be seen as "a success, defined as the president protecting and advancing American national interests".
Cohen, who was Trump's lawyer for a decade, called the president a liar, crook and racist during his testimony to Congress. At a news conference last week, the California Democrat suggested that it should not have taken Trump so long to recognise that Kim is not serious about denuclearisation.
"But we've tried to make it clear to them - as again the president has said this repeatedly we're not going to make the mistakes of past administrations".
However, Moon said that if all Yongbyon facilities were "terminated in entirety, it should be considered the North's denuclearisation has entered an irreversible stage".
Under U.S. laws, Trump would need to go through an involved process to soften U.S. unilateral sanctions against the North, which would put South Korean companies doing business in the North under the threat of U.S. boycotts.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to members of the U.S. military after his summit meeting with North Korea's Kim Jong Un in Vietnam during a refueling stop at Elmendorf Air Force Base in Anchorage, Alaska, U.S., February 28, 2019.
"It doesn't mean that he accepts it as reality".
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., a close Trump ally, broke with the president.
Do you think the decision by the defense authorities will be another factor that can stimulate the denuclearization efforts on the Korean peninsula? Kim will be able to portray himself to his people and supporters as the charismatic head of a nuclear-armed power, not an global pariah that starves its citizens so it can build weapons.
During the CBS interview, Bolton also headed off potential criticism that earlier diplomatic groundwork prior to the summit was supposed to negate the possibility of both sides walking away from the meetings without a deal.

"I think that this was a spectacular failure but made all the worse by the president's obsequious comments when it came to the murder of an American citizen, Otto Warmbier", the Democratic lawmaker said.
When asked if he shared Trump's stance on Kim's statements, Bolton reiterated that "the president takes him at his word".
A day after the summit, he said in a speech that South Korea will negotiate with the US on ways to restart the frozen joint projects north of the border - a mountain resort and a factory park where South Korean firms used North Korean labor to produce goods.
An example of that non-traditional diplomacy was formally unveiled Sunday when South Korea and the USA announced they would not conduct massive springtime military drills and were replacing them with smaller exercises.
But some experts believe that Kim, by standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Trump at a summit that captivated many around the world, will have one sure win: He'll be able to portray himself to his people and supporters as the charismatic head of a nuclear-armed power, not an global pariah that starves its citizens so it can build nukes and missiles. I give my advice to the president. These projects provided much-needed cash to North Korea before the South shut them down during past periods of tensions.
