The harrowing comments claim that Donald Trump is running out of options to deal with the reclusive nation.

Stephen Rademaker, the former assistant Secretary of State responsible for arms control, said: “North Korea successfully demonstrated for the first time that it could strike US territory in the Pacific.

“In the absence of good military options or a Chinese deus ex machina, the remaining options for eliminating the threat are limited. We’ve tried them all, and all have failed.

“Barack Obama found the results so disappointing that he shifted to ignoring the problem.”

The expert believes China has the ability to disarm North Korea and rid it of nuclear weapons but has been inactive because they are worried it will become a US ally.

He added: “China is a great power that has had plenty of time to think through its policy. It is concerned, but clearly not panicked.

“More importantly, it perceives plenty of downsides to overreacting, including the potential collapse and absorption of its ally, North Korea, into America’s ally, South Korea.

“So great is our dependence on China that, like hostages held by a kidnapper, all previous administrations developed a sort of Stockholm syndrome, coming to believe that China was doing everything it could to help solve the problem, when it manifestly could do more.”

It follows reports that the hermit state is preparing for an imminent attack as Kim Jong-un has begun ordering the rapid construction of protective walls.

Kim Jong-un believes his nation is on verge of being hit by cruise missiles from the US, who they regularly promise to “reduce to ashes”.
