Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton on Friday endorsed President Trump's tough tone with North Korea because "his options are few and not very good."

"We've had 25 years of American politicians, Democrats and Republicans, standing up and saying, solemnly: 'It's unacceptable for North Korea to have nuclear weapons,'" Bolton, who served in the Bush 43 White House, told Jeanine Pirro on Fox News. "Same thing for Iran.

"Now, we're being told by the same people that said we could negotiate North Korea out of these weapons, 'I guess we have to accept that they will have nuclear weapons.'

"That's not where Trump is — and it's not where we should be as a people.

"We should not allow ourselves to be held hostage by this erratic regime and the threat of nuclear terrorism against our country."

Bolton said that the last remaining diplomatic hope was with China.

"If you want to have a future where North Korea can threaten with missiles, you have it look at one more diplomatic play — to convince China to reunite the peninsula with us, or you have to look at the military option.

"People are worried about the difficulty, the chaos, that it may create today," Bolton added.

"The risk is real.

"What about the chaos when North Korea launches missiles at the United States?"
