America's top general has apologised for appearing alongside Donald Trump last week for a photo-opportunity in central Washington DC, after a number of protesters had been forcefully removed from the scene by authorities.

During the photo-op, the President held a Bible outside of St John's Church.

There was condemnation for the presence of General Mark Milley, from Democrats, as well as retired military leaders.

Retired US Colonel Mike Jason speaks to Morning Report.
