Trump to Guam's Governor: 'Don't Worry About a Thing'

B-1 Bombers Key to a US Plan to Strike North Korean Missile Sites Sources

Loud laughter can be heard from the White House line as Calvo continues: "With all the criticism going on over there, from a guy that's being targeted, we need a guy like you".

On Friday afternoon, President Trump called Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo to offer his support and reassurance.

"We are with you 1,000 percent", Trump says on the call.

Mr Calvo, a second-term Republican, said he had "never felt more safe or so confident" than with Mr Trump at the helm.

Trump then reiterated that "you're going to be taking care of".

"Eddie, I have to tell you, you've become extremely famous", said the president, who telephoned from Bedminster, New Jersey, where's he on a working vacation.

"Well, as far as I know, especially regarding Filipinos in Guam, the embassies and consulates in general - including the one in Agana, Guam - have contingency plans which are regularly updated to enable them to respond to emergencies", Abella noted. The president said a visit to Guam "could happen".

Growing up on an island where destroyers were common sightings and Air Force demonstrations casual entertainment, Ken Villo knew how strategically important Guam was to the USA military's presence in the Pacific. "We've got 95 percent occupancy, and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110 percent occupancy".

"We have a great military here and they have done us right".

"If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, under concrete structure or below ground if possible", the sheet adds.

Tension in the region has risen since North Korea carried out two nuclear bomb tests previous year and two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

A local man is anxious about his family's safety after North Korea threatened a ballistic missile strike on Guam. Though the island is a whopping 4,000 miles away from its nearest U.S. neighbor, Hawaii, the 210-square mile island is a territory of the United States.
