North Korean despot Kim Jong-un has threatened to launch a military strike on the US territory in the South Pacific. The threat has intensified fears that the two powers could go to war

Earlier, President Trump said the U.S. military was "locked and loaded" to deal with North Korea, should the need arise, as the countries' leaders increased bellicose rhetoric this week.

President Trump called Gov. Eddie Calvo (R) to reassure him that the full power of the federal government is in his corner.

"You know what, that could happen.it looks so attractive to me", Trump said.

"This is an attempt on North Korea's part to ratchet things up, but I think the diplomatic channels that President Trump talked about are the ones that we're hoping, along with sanctions, that will work and not a war".

Mr Calvo, a second-term Republican, said he had "never felt more safe or so confident" than with Mr Trump at the helm.

Trump then says, "We're going to do a great job for you". "Frankly, you could have said that about the last three presidents". USA officials said there was no major movement of US military assets to the region, nor were there signs Pyongyang was actively preparing for war. "We've got 95 percent occupancy, and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110 percent occupancy".

"If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, under concrete structure or below ground if possible", the sheet adds.

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".

North Korea is responding to the president's statement saying it is seriously examining a plan to strike Guam with a ballistic missile. "We are rock solid and we are the best in the world". "This is a time of threat to the United States". Trump, in turn, told reporters that his threat earlier this week to rain down "fire and fury" on the adversary perhaps "wasn't tough enough".
