Trump Calls Guam Gov to 'Say Hello' and Promise Full Federal Support

Trump Calls Guam Gov to 'Say Hello' and Promise Full Federal Support

"Tourism, I can tell you this - tourism, you're going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money so I congratulate you", Mr Trump is heard saying in a video posted to Facebook by Guam's governor Eddie Baza Calvo.

Calvo answers, "as the governor of Guam representing the people of Guam and as an American citizen, I never felt more safe or confident than with you at the helm". So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you, so I'm just so thankful.

Trump assured Calvo that "We are behind you 1,000 percent".

"The circumstances are unfortunate but this is a good opportunity for us to educate the world about Guam and our culture, about where we are, and who we are", Guam Visitors Bureau marketing director Josh Tyquiengco told AFP. "I wanted to call you and say hello, how are you?"

Mr Calvo has spent most of the week assuring Guam's 160,000 residents of their safety despite the threats.

Mr Trump and Mr Calvo were speaking over the phone.

In the days since, Mr Trump has ratcheted up the rhetoric, saying his words were not tough enough and then boasting that the American military was "locked and loaded".

If a warning is issued, Guam residents should take cover quickly - in a concrete structure, preferably underground - and stay there until instructed otherwise, according to the fact sheet titled "Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat". "They should have had me eight years ago, or somebody with my thought process". "I'll talk to you anytime you need, and again, it looks like just a lovely place". "In time you will be able to leave a fallout shelter".

Padilla made the statement after the North Korean Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army said on Thursday it was "seriously examining a plan" to fire a missile near Guam.

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

Gen. Restituto Padilla Jr. said the possibility that the Philippines could be hit if North Korea proceeded with its threat was "remote".

A giant inflatable chicken with a Donald Trump hairstyle has been placed near the White House by Taran Singh Brar, an Indian-origin activist, to protest the president's stand on releasing his tax returns, dealing with North Korea and engaging with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
