Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam

Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam

Trump called up Eddie Baza Calvo, the governor of Guam, on Friday to reassure him that everything is going to be fine.

"Well, we're going to do a great job here, don't worry about a thing", Trump replied. "All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", the clip, about 45 seconds long, showed the President as saying. As part of the short conversation, Trump also assured Calvo that he had become "extremely famous" as a result of Guam being in the press and said that tourism in the US territory would go up "tenfold". On Aug. 11, he said that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea continue its threats.

If North Korea does launch a missile strike, there is a public warning system in place and a 14-minute window to react, Guam Homeland Security said. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

The North's official KCNA news service, for its part, accused Trump in an editorial of "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war", calling the United States "the heinous nuclear war fanatic". If people are caught outside, "do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you".

"Guam is more than a military base".

He said there had only been a few booking cancellations from South Korea.

Preliminary results of that investigation showed that the plane piloted by Stern began to lose altitude shortly after take off. Lee Grabner. "All he could say was that he was in a plane crash, is all he could really articulate to us".

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.

"Listening to that call left me feeling disgusted", said Andrea Nicole Grajek, a local artist from Dededo village.

Earlier this week, North Korea threatened to launch four missiles toward Guam.

I just got off the phone with Chief of Staff General John Kelly and with the President of the United States of America. The call was filmed for some unusual reason, which led to an odd bit in the beginning when Calvo leads off "as the governor of Guam, representing the people of Guam", like he's delivering expository dialogue. He also boasted about the US' nuclear arsenal on Wednesday before adding that "hopefully we will never have to use" nuclear weapons.

Officials, however, have sought to brush off fears and say there has been no change in the threat level for now.
