Trump Speaks to Guam Governor About... Tourism?

Trump Speaks to Guam Governor About... Tourism?

In the phone call Mr Trump goes on to praise the island's beauty, which he says he has seen in news reports about the missile threat. "They should have had me eight years ago, or somebody with my thought process". "It looks lovely, you know I'm watching.it's such a big story in the news".

DPRK's military said in a statement on Thursday that it would prepare a plan by mid-August to strike Guam, a US island territory in the Western Pacific, with intermediate missiles.

Trump, and Chief of Staff General John Kelly, phoned Guam's governor Eddie Baza Calvo to assure him that the people of the country are safe and that the president is behind the them "1000 percent".

"Eddie, I have to tell you, you've become extremely famous".

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise. It just looks like a handsome place", he said. "We've got 95% occupancy, and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110% occupancy". But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that".

However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack.

Once you sign up for the game, which originated in Russian Federation , it will assign you daily tasks to complete for 50 days. Last month, a 14-year-old boy in Mumbai allegedly committed suicide after playing the game.

Then Trump, ever the businessman, started talking about how good this situation will be for Guam's tourism industry. It included information on how to build an emergency supply kit, make an emergency family plan, make a list of potential concrete shelters near your home, and to not look at the flash or fireball because it can blind you.

"We are the best in the world by a factor of five", he said.

A member of Trump's Republican Party, Calvo insisted during the two men's call that "I have never felt more safe or so confident with you at the helm", according to his office.

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.

Despite the threats, the Lt. Governor said the people of Guam feel safe.

Trump reciprocated the sentiment and suggested that the stalemate between the U.S. and North Korea could have had a different outcome, had he been the president in years past.
