Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

During an interview with FOX Business' Melissa Francis of After the Bell, Guam Governor Eddie Calvo shared his uneasiness over Kim Jong Un threats on the USA territory.

These are among the guidelines Guam has released as, amid escalating tensions with North Korea, the small Pacific island contemplates the nightmare scenario of a nuclear strike.

It was a response to Trump's unusually stern warning to North Korea, when he said: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the US".

During the phone call Mr Calvo laments criticism of Mr Trump, saying "from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you". The President and Chief of Staff General John Kelly called Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo and assured him that they are behind Guam 1,000-percent. Don't worry about a thing. "All over the world, they are talking about Guam". "So I'm just so thankful, and I'm glad you're holding the helm, sir".

Trump praised the military, bashed an "obstructionist Congress" and told Calvo how tourism would be boosted for Guam without spending money.

I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous.

"It could happen", the president said.

Meanwhile here on Guam, the threat level remains unchanged.

Mr Calvo has spent most of the week assuring Guam's 160,000 residents of their safety despite the threats. If that wasn't possible, people should lie on the ground and cover their heads, it said.

North Korea has threatened Guam several times before, most recently in 2013, which prompted the United States to permanently deploy a missile defence system.
