39th president Jimmy Carter, who has a legacy of traveling to North Korea and meeting with several of the country’s leaders, shared his thoughts for the planned White House summit with Pyongyang with a concerned notion stating that Trump may have made “one of the worst mistakes” of his tenure by naming John Bolton national security adviser.

In an interview with USA TODAY, promoting his new book titled Faith, Carter calls Bolton “a warlike figure” and cited that his policies are catastrophic.

“Maybe one of the worst mistakes that President Trump has made since he’s been in office is his employment of John Bolton, who has been advocating a war with North Korea for a long time and even an attack on Iran, and who has been one of the leading figures on orchestrating the decision to invade Iraq,” Carter said. He called the appointment, announced last week, “a disaster for our country.”
