Former CIA chief of staff Jeremy Bash slammed the summit between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday, saying it was disgusting to see the U.S. flag alongside that from the “despotic regime” of Pyongyang.

“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. 

“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.
