Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

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).

He continued, "We're going to do a great job for you".

The North has threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan toward the tourism-dependent idyllic island, as Pyongyang and Washington ratchet up their war of words. So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you. "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".

Calvo agrees. "It's paradise, " he says.

Guam's Office of Civil Defense began disseminating fact sheets Friday to help residents prepare for a missile attack from North Korea. If people are caught outside, "do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you".

Visitors to the Homeland Security website are also directed to an American Red Cross guide on how to "shelter-in-place" during a chemical or radiation emergency.

A video shows Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo laughing and joking with the president as they discuss everything from the readiness of the United States military to tourism. Guam's governor, Eddie Calvo, said late Wednesday during an interview on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" with fill-in host Brian Kilmeade: "As far as I'm concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury".

"We are the best in the world by a factor of five", he says.

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.

"I wish there would be less partisanship up there, this is a time of threats to the United States", said Calvo.

On Wednesday, Mr Trump followed up his "fire and fury" warning with a boast about USA nuclear capabilities.
