Gov Calvo receives phone call from US President

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

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo has backed Mr Trump, saying "I want a president" who defends American territories with tough talk.

In the Presidents words they are behind us '1000 percent'.

He told Calvo: "You notice that he hasn't spoken recently?" You are safe. We're with you 1,000 percent.

Senior Cabinet officials on Friday assured the government has prepared contingency plans including evacuation for the estimated 42,000 Filipinos in Guam threatened with a missile attack from North Korea. "Some Guam residents told reporters that they anxious what might happen if North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, were actually to follow through".

"As an American citizen I have never felt more safe or so confident with you at the helm", Mr Calvo said.

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the United States military is "rock solid".

"They should have had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process", Trump said.

"We're going to do a great job, don't worry about a thing", Trump then added.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have escalated this week amid increasingly heated rhetoric between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

I take issue with your editorial that includes a description of "residents of Guam glancing nervously skyward" ("Alternative fact of the Week: Trump's nuclear arsenal", August 10).

"We'll see how it all works out, but you're not going to have a problem and I just wanted to pay my respects and say you seem like a hell of a guy".

"All over the world, they're talking about Guam, and they're talking about you, and I think tourism, I can say this, your tourism, you're going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you". So you just take care of yourself.

Hawaii has also sought to prepare residents for the threat of a nuclear missile attack from North Korea, while stressing that the risk of a strike is low. 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.
