Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

USA president Donald Trump has called the Governor of Guam, the island nation under threat of nuclear attack from North Korea, that news of the potential missile strike will boost tourism.

Guam's $5 billion economy is fueled mainly by tourism and the United States military, which occupies about 30 percent of the island and is looking to expand.

He told the governor, "You seem like a hell of a guy".

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

Wenger 'relieved' Giroud has chose to stay
Following Danny Welbeck's leveller in first-half stoppage time, another corner yielded Leicester's third goal as Riyad Mahrez's cross was headed home by Vardy.

Calvo posted a video of the conversation to Facebook. "I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous". "They should have had me eight years ago, or somebody with my thought process". It looks lovely, you know I'm watching...it's such a big story in the news.

"You just went to 110 I think", Mr Trump joked. "It just looks like a attractive place", he said.

"The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about 'fire and fury, ' failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation", a commander of the North Korean army said, as reported by CNN. But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that".

As tensions continue to rise between the United States and North Korea, folks are suddenly remembering that even if the DPRK can't strike the continental USA, if they really wanted to, they could cause problems for our allies and territories. Now, Guamanian residents are nervously watching developments between the two nations.

Trump Warned over Hawkish Rhetoric against North Korea
Politico said the investigation would not mean immediate sanctions, but would ultimately lead to steep tariffs on Chinese goods. It wasn't clear why Trump is returning in the middle of his planned 17-day summer break, however.

Trump is clearly leaning on the old adage that all press is good press, but here's the thing: it's not.

Calvo answers, "as the governor of Guam representing the people of Guam and as an American citizen, I never felt more safe or confident than with you at the helm". On Aug. 11, he said that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea continue its threats.

Former State Department official Joel S. Wit, the founder of 38 North, a website that analyzes North Korea, told Politico that Trump's claims risked undermining diplomatic efforts. The downloadable fact sheets are captioned, "in case of emergency".

Trump tells Calvo he's behind Guam "1000%"
He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the United States military is "rock solid". Trump's contentious calls with leaders of Australia and Mexico in the early days of his administration.
