Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

He continued, "We're going to do a great job for you".

"Tourism - I can say this - you're going to go up ten-fold, with the expenditure of no money...."

Calvo agrees, saying, "It's paradise".

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

North Korea said earlier this week it would complete plans to launch missiles into the waters near Guam by mid-August.

The phone call came shortly after authorities in Guam issued documents advising residents on to respond in the event of an "imminent missile threat". "Fallout radiation loses its intensity fairly rapidly".

Visitors to the Homeland Security website are also directed to an American Red Cross guide on how to "shelter-in-place" during a chemical or radiation emergency.

Trump, and Chief of Staff General John Kelly, phoned Guam's governor Eddie Baza Calvo to assure him that the people of the country are safe and that the president is behind the them "1000 percent". "It just looks like a attractive place", he said. Guam's governor, Eddie Calvo, said late Wednesday during an interview on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with fill-in host Brian Kilmeade: "As far as I'm concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury". We are rock solid, and we have the best in the world by a factor of five.

"Good Morning, my dear people of Guam", began the governor.

If correct, and if the United States 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.

After the tourism discussion, the two talked more about North Korea and how to deal with someone like Kim Jong Un and about partisan rancor and obstructionism in Washington, D.C.

Mr Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.
