Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam

President Donald Trump went on to assure Governor Calvo that Guam is safe.

Earlier this week, President Donald Trump responded to information that North Korea may now be able to miniaturize nuclear weapons. As part of the short conversation, Trump also assured Calvo that he had become "extremely famous" as a result of Guam being in the press and said that tourism in the USA territory would go up "tenfold".

The telephone call between the Guam Governor and President Trump was filmed and posted to Eddie Calvo's Facebook page.

In the Presidents words they are behind us '1000 percent'.

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

"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", Trump said in prescient tone. Then Trump, ever the businessman, started talking about how good this situation will be for Guam's tourism industry. And I wanted to call you and say hello.

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise".

And he told the former hotel magnate, "We have 95 percent occupancy and after all of this stuff calms down we're going to have 110 percent occupancy". "It just looks like a attractive place". "So I'm just so thankful, and I'm glad you're holding the helm, sir".

U.S. officials tell FOX there are no U.S. Navy aircraft carriers off the coast of Korea right now, nor thousands of Marines aboard ships offshore.

Trump again reassures Calvo, saying, "We'll see how it all works out but you're not going to have a problem".

Trump's warning came after the North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam.

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the USA military is "rock solid".
