Trump speaks with Guam governor amid North Korea threat

Many sources say the Pentagon has a plan for a preemptive strike against North Korea but some experts believe diplomacy is the way forward

"Governor, I just want to let you know we're with you 1,000 percent", Mr Trump told Mr Calvo.

The two-page fact sheet includes tips like "do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you", "remove your clothing to keep radioactive material from spreading", and "take a shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination".

The president also predicted a boom in tourism for the US territory in light of the North Korean threat. "Frankly, you could have said that about the last three presidents".

Governor Calvo said "as the head of the government of Guam, I appreciate [the US government's] reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe".

"Don't worry about a thing and they should have had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process, because that was the time", Trump said.

Governor Eddie Calvo during a press briefing on Friday told everyone to remain calm and enjoy the weekend.

Obama Aide Admits His Administration Failed On North Korea
The statement is a direct response to bipartisan criticism of the ultimatum Trump issued to North Korea on Tuesday. He trashed Trump repeatedly throughout the campaign, to replace Trump as the nominee months before Election Day.

"The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about 'fire and fury, ' failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation", a commander of the North Korean army said, as reported by CNN.

Calvo agrees, saying, "It's paradise. We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff comes down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

Calvo said he "never felt more safe or so confident" with Trump "at the helm". But we will see what happens. "But your'e not going to have a problem". "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you".

New United Nations sanctions condemning the North's rapidly developing nuclear program drew fresh ire and threats from Pyongyang. It should be everybody unifying behind our president.

"Well, you're right about that", Trump replied. But regardless, our military is so incredible, and there's no partisanship there, believe me.

The statement said that in the event of a strike, people "should 'take cover, take shelter immediately, not look towards what could be the blast area in fears of being blinded, '" Almaguer said.
