  • Gov Calvo receives phone call from US President

All over the world they're talking about Guam.

"We are with you 1,000 percent", Mr. Trump said in the call to Mr. Calvo, who invited the president to the island.

"Here you have a situation where the president is just clearly just making it up as he goes along and trying some bellicose language because he thinks that will work", Soderberg said in an interview with "Power Lunch".

"As far as I'm concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam. that they will be met with hell and fury", Calvo said Wednesday on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight".

Republican governor Eddie Baza Calvo posted a recording of the conversation on his Facebook page on Friday.

The president also predicted a boon in tourism for the US territory in light of the North Korean threat.

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles into the seas around the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added. And I wanted to call you and say hello. It's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a lovely place.

In response, North Korean state media claimed that the military was formulating plans to attack Guam.

Trump continued to exchange pleasantries with Calvo, saying that the governor had "become famous", and suggesting that he would visit the USA territory in the future.

The reason, of course, that Guam is in the news is because of Trump's threats regarding North Korea.

.

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

Strangely, Trump stressed that the crisis could actually be good for the economy of Guam, while perhaps indicating where he'll take his next family vacation.
