"Don't worry about a thing", responded Trump.

"Mr President, as the Governor of Guam, representative of Guam's people, and as an American citizen, I felt never more safe and confident with you at the helm", the Governor said with a smile. "I just wanted to call and say hello". "You are safe", Trump told Calvo at the start of the three minute call.

North Korea quickly replied by leveling threats against Guam, a US territory with a heavy military presence which sits about 2,100 miles from the North Korean capital of Pyongyang.

"In the president's words they are behind us 1,000 percent". "I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous".

Calvo agrees. "It's paradise, " he says. "It just looks like a attractive place", he said.

And he told the former hotel magnate, "We have 95 percent occupancy and after all of this stuff calms down we're going to have 110 percent occupancy". On Friday, the president had issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the US military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies.

Despite Mr Trump's reassurances, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. "But you're not going to have a problem". It included information on how to build an emergency supply kit, make an emergency family plan, make a list of potential concrete shelters near your home, and to not look at the flash or fireball because it can blind you.

Tension in the region has risen since North Korea carried out two nuclear bomb tests a year ago and two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July. God Bless the people of Guam and God Bless the United States of America.

Calvo posted a video of the conversation to Facebook.

Trump reciprocated the sentiment and suggested that the stalemate between the United States and North Korea could have had a different outcome, had he been the president in years past.
