Gov. Calvo went on to express his faith in President Trump's handling of the North Korea threat.
North Korea's army will complete the plans in mid-August, when they will be ready for leader Kim Jong Un's order, state-run KCNA news agency reported, citing General Kim Rak Gyom, commander of the Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army.

The fact sheet also says to shower after a strike and not to use conditioner because it will bond radioactive material to your hair.
Trump told Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo that tourism would boom on the island due to the attention it has received over the global crisis.
The exercises were scheduled well before tensions began to rise over Trump's increasingly fiery rhetoric and North Korea's announcement of the missile plan, which if carried out would be its most provocative launch yet.

China will back North Korea if the U.S. strikes first against its neighbour and ideological ally, but if Pyongyang initiates hostilities and prompts a USA response, China will stay neutral, the state-run Global Times newspaper said in a commentary. Pyongyang has laid out plans to strike near the US territory of Guam. "Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely", he wrote.

Instead he promised to respond to the next provocation from North Korea with what many assumed to mean nuclear force.
As announced by North Korea, which added detail to a plan first unveiled on Wednesday, the planned path of the missiles would cross some of the world's busiest sea and air traffic routes.
According to the source, the talks are being held between Ambassador Joseph Yun, the USA special representative for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission, using what's known as the "New York channel", which has been an avenue of communication between the US and North Korea throughout the years.
