The United States government is issuing guidelines to the people of Guam in response to North Korea's threats this week that they are assessing a strike on the USA territory in the Pacific Ocean.

The mayor of Guam recorded the candid, 3-minute phone conversation with Trump and posted it to his Facebook page.

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Friday allayed fears over North Korea's plan to fire ballistic missiles near the US Pacific territory of Guam some 1,500 miles from Manila.

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. "We are with you a thousand percent", the President said.

"And your tourism, I can say this, your tourism is going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you", Mr Trump said, praising the island's beauty, to which Mr Calvo encouraged Mr Trump to visit. All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you.

I take issue with your editorial that includes a description of "residents of Guam glancing nervously skyward" ("Alternative fact of the Week: Trump's nuclear arsenal", August 10).

Calvo concurred, giving Trump a tourism pitch and describing it as "paradise". "But you'll be taken care of".

Nuclear confrontation with North Korea would be "catastrophic": Mattis
Military action should not be an option when confronting the problem of escalating tensions with North Korea, US Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney said in a statement.

Mr Trump and Mr Calvo were speaking over the phone.

Mr Trump agrees, saying "They should have had me in years ago. frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents". Guam Homeland Security additionally released a fact sheet on how to prepare for an imminent missile threat. It just looks like a attractive place.

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

Pyongyang said in 2016 that it might blow up Guam in response to a US anti-missile drill with Japan and South Korea it found provocative.

Guam would benefit from the exposure, Mr Trump said.

Trump has warned the North that it would "truly regret" attacking the United States, and that the U.S. military is "locked and loaded".

The North's official KCNA news service, for its part, accused Trump in an editorial of "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war", calling the USA "the heinous nuclear war fanatic".
