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

"So, with all the criticism going on over there, from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you", said Calvo.

"I just wanted to pay my respect", Trump said to Calvo over the phone.

"In time", the advisory says, "you will be able to leave a fallout shelter".

The Pacific island nation - an unincorporated territory of the U.S. - was this week threatened by Pyongyang with missile strikes, which has been widely condemned by the global community.

I take issue with your editorial that includes a description of "residents of Guam glancing nervously skyward" ("Alternative fact of the Week: Trump's nuclear arsenal", August 10).

He added, lowering his voice: "This is between you and I. But you don't talk like they talk".

"In the president's words they are behind us 1,000 percent".

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

Tensions have escalated between the USA and North Korea as the communist regime continues testing and expanding its nuclear program, reporting this week that it can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles.

North Korea says its Hwasong-12 missiles would take just 1,065 seconds to complete their 3,356km flight over Japan before splashing down in waters off the coast of Guam.

An American territory that hosts a significant military contingent, Guam has found itself in the crosshairs of a geopolitical feud sparked by Donald Trump promising "fire and fury" in response to further threats.
