In phone call, Trump assures Guam of safety - and fame

In phone call, Trump assures Guam of safety - and fame

Eddie Baza Calvo, governor of Guam, spoke to President Trump Friday about North Korea's threat to launch a nuclear missile at the island by the middle of August.

Mr Calvo, a second-term Republican, said he had "never felt more safe or so confident" than with Mr Trump at the helm.

"Tourism - I can say this - you're going to go up ten-fold, with the expenditure of no money...."

Before speaking to Mr Calvo, Mr Trump told reporters in New Jersey that he believed Guam would be "very safe" and threatened North Korea with "big, big trouble" if it launched an attack.

"We are with you 1000 percent", Trump said. "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you", Mr Trump said.

"When (Russian President Vladimir) Putin says that, you know, he didn't interfere in our election - he was lying". So you just take care of yourself.

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the USA military is "rock solid".

This is not to say that North Korea will not respond to President Trump's remarks with plenty of blood-curdling threats, but it is important to note that the threat universally cited by the mainstream media as Kim Jong-un's terrifying push back against Trump's bluster was, in fact, a threat issued for entirely different reasons - both of them involving American military forces located on USA soil.

Mr Calvo responded by agreeing his home was "paradise" and had "99 per cent occupancy".

It said brick and concrete structures were the safest places to shelter from radioactive fallout, and people should prepare to remain inside for at least 24 hours.

Guam would benefit from the exposure, Mr Trump said.

Referring to an "imminent missile threat", it includes advice like: "Do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you".

"We are watching with concern because North Korean missiles are not exactly accurate", Lorenzana said in a mix of Filipino and English at the national defense headquarters in suburban Quezon City, Metro Manila.

The president called the USA military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five".

Calvo has said North Korea's warning of a possible missile strike on Guam was not a threat, but said the island should be prepared.

The call came hours after Trump issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against North Korea, declaring the US military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies.
