North Korea’s despot leader and President Donald Trump have been at loggerheads after the rogue state threatened to hit the US territory of Guam with a deadly missile attack.

President Trump promised to retaliate with “fire and fury” and claimed his own impressive arsenal of weapons was “locked and loaded” ready to hit North Korea, which sparked of World War 3.

Despite threats from the USA, North Korea have continued their controversial nuclear programme by testing what Pyongyang claims was a deadly nuclear weapon capable of being mounted to an intercontinental ballistic missile.

United States President Donald Trump left all options on the table when he was asked if he would react with military force to North Korea’s latest weapons test, telling reporters: “We’ll see.”

His Secretary of Defence General James Mattis warned the “total annihilation” of North Korea was just one of “many military options” being considered by Mr Trump’s White House administration.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, the broadcaster’s veteran foreign affairs editor revealed just why 2017 could be history’s most dangerous time to be alive.

He said: “Donald Trump is a hard person to defend and he’s been appalling wrong-footed by Kim Jong-un over his whole crisis.

“He’s been made to look foolish in many ways, but I’m not certain he wants a nuclear war with all the horrors that it involves.
