Trump tells Guam governor: 'We are with you 1000 percent'

Trump tells Guam governor: 'We are with you 1000 percent'

Gen. Restituto Padilla Jr. said the possibility that the Philippines could be hit if North Korea proceeded with its threat was "remote".

Calvo had the president on speaker phone, and posted a video of the exchange to his Facebook page.

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

He told Calvo: "You notice that he hasn't spoken recently?"

"We are with you 1,000 per cent, you are safe", he adds.

President Trump spoke with the governor of Guam on Friday after North Korea threatened earlier this week to launch missiles toward the island by mid-August. All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you.

The president then takes a jab at his predecessors, telling Calvo, "They should've had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process because that was the time".

"There are two scenarios where we would go to war with North Korea", Graham explained.

The north Korean crisis comes to Wall Street
Nigerian oil production rose by 34,300 bpd to 1.748 million bpd, while Saudi Arabia's went up by 31,800 bpd to 10.067 million bpd. It has weakened 1.9 percent against the dollar this week, making it the worst performer among global emerging-market currencies .

"I just wanted to pay my respects [and say] you are safe", Mr Trump began the call.

"(President Donald Trump is) not going to contain the threat, he's going to stop the threat", Graham, one of the Senate's most hawkish members, said in an interview on "CBS This Morning".

Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told the Japanese parliament that its American-designed Aegis destroyers are capable of shooting down North Korean missiles and that any attack on Guam would be considered an "existential threat to Japan" under defense treaties with the United States.

In a separate interview, Secretary Delfin Lorenzana of the Department of National Defense admitted the government was watching with concern the rising tension between the U.S. and North Korea. "You are safe", the president said.

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

Before the call ended, Calvo invited Trump to Guam, and Trump told him to come see him in the White House the next time he's in Washington.

However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack.

Calvo said there was "concern and worry" among the people of Guam but "no panic".
