Trump tells Calvo he's behind Guam "1000%"

Tourism-dependent Guam is looking to cash in on its new-found fame as a North Korean missile target tapping an unlikely promotional opportunity to attract visitors to the idy

"Well you're right about that, but unfortunately, you know, we're living with a very obstructionist group, but maybe that will change", Trump responded. Good morning. I just wanted to pay my respects, and we are with you 1,000 percent.

"I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous". All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you.

Trump's call came as North Korea is threatening an attack on Guam amid escalating tensions over North Korea's continued push to develop nuclear weapons capable of reaching the US mainland.

The plan calls for missiles to be fired into the sea about 40 kilometres from the coast of Guam.

The president responded, "You just went to 110, I think". You don't have to worry about a thing.

Calvo agrees. "It's paradise, " he says.

Its expected price tag will be the local Korean equivalent of $875, while the V30 is quite likely getting launched at around $700. Other than that, the devices may also differ in their "audio system" and "wireless charging".

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.

The flyer also advises residents to lie flat on the ground, look away from the flash or fireball, and shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination. "Fallout radiation loses its intensity fairly rapidly".

"Mr. President, as the governor of Guam.and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or confident with you at the helm", Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo (R) said, according to a video posted to his Facebook page. "They should have had me eight years ago..."

The president called the United States military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five". It just looks like a attractive place", he said.

If correct, and if the USA allows the missiles to launch in the first place, that leaves 17 minutes for tracking stations on land and sea - including the Pine Gap facility near Alice Springs - to calculate, target and try to destroy the missiles.

The North has threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the tourism-dependent island, as Pyongyang and Washington ratchet up their war of words. But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that".
