Trump Speaks to Guam Governor About... Tourism?

Trump Speaks to Guam Governor About... Tourism?

Guam continues to be a top tourist destination even though it is in the center of the US-North Korea tensions, which continue to rise with every day that passes. You don't have to worry about a thing.

Mr. Trump responded, "We're going to do a great job".

This week Pyongyang's state-run news agency said its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam, a USA territory and military base, amid increasingly heated rhetoric over the North Korea's nuclear weapons program.

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. "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you".

Calvo agrees, saying, "It's paradise. And if anything happens to Guam, there's going to be big, big trouble in North Korea".

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".

"Good morning, good morning", the president is heard saying to Calvo.

A video shared by Guam's Office of Civil Defence captured a phone call between Guam's Governor Eddie Baza Calvo and the USA president. "They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process".

The President said he wanted to give his "highest respect and regards" to the people of Guam and that the military is rock solid "we've got the best in the world", he added.

North Korea says its Hwasong-12 missiles would take just 1,065 seconds to complete their 3,356km flight over Japan before splashing down in waters off the coast of Guam.

The phone call follows the President's latest tweet in which he wrote the military is "locked and loaded" if North Korea acts "unwisely".

Tensions between North Korea and the USA have escalated this week amid increasingly heated rhetoric between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Mr. Trump had threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea for any provocation.
