Trump speaks with Guam's governor in extremely candid phone call

Guam's Governor Values Trump 'Fire and Fury,' Dismisses N. Korean Threat as 'Position of Fear'

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo reminded Fox News of that on Wednesday (the network evidently needed a lesson), hours after North Korea threatened to fire four missiles at the island.

Tydingco said he's confident that the American military, which has a large presence on the island, is capable of minimizing the threat, should it come to that. So I'm just so thankful. Nobody wanted it. It happened", she told The Washington Post on Saturday, adding: "We pray day and night. We are a safe family destination.

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

Trump reciprocated the sentiment and suggested that the stalemate between the USA and North Korea could have had a different outcome, had he been the president in years past. "And even if they could successfully target us, the USA military installations here have defense capabilities which I feel pretty confident would keep anything from actually hitting us".

"Well, you're right about that", Trump replied. "Tourists are coming as normal even with all these fights from the media".

"There is a defense umbrella contained within South Korea, there is a defense umbrella for Japan, there are naval assets between Korea, Japan and Guam, and there is a missile defense system of Guam that make up a multi-level defensive umbrella". "Now people know where we are".

"How do people really see Guam in the context of the USA family? But since we don't have that, we need Trump to do his best to act like one".

Calvo said earlier this week that "there is no change in the threat level resulting from North Korea events". The president told Kim Jong Un the firing of missiles at America would result in "fire and fury" like has never before been seen in the world. Trump later said that those comments may not have been "tough enough."

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

Good morning. I just wanted to pay my respects, and we are with you 1,000%. The President and Chief of Staff General John Kelly called Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo and assured him that they are behind Guam 1,000-percent.

Trump said: "It's great to speak with you. All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", the clip, about 45 seconds long, showed the President as saying.

Others, however, are more critical, saying Trump needs to tone down his antagonistic language. President Trump must reaffirm his commitment to Guam's security and make clear that he will not allow any escalation to further threaten our island.

Trump complimented Calvo on the natural beauty of the Pacific island 3,950 miles west of Hawaii. She fears that even a failed attempt on that country's part could spiral into something much more damaging to many more people beyond Guam.
