Guam Governor Says Trump Told Him North Korea Threats Will Increase Tourism

North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles into the seas around the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers.

"And your tourism, I can say this, your tourism is going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you".

The President also told the governor that the White House was "with you 1,000 per cent". You are safe. We're with you 1,000 percent.

"It just looks like a lovely place", Mr. Trump said. "Mr. President, I have never felt so safe as with you at the helm", Calvo told Trump. "I am so thankful and I'm glad you're holding the helm". "You are safe", Trump told Calvo at the start of the three minute call. "They're not going to make an out of the blue strike against the U.S., Japan, Guam or South Korea because they know that's national suicide", said Daryl Kimball, Executive Director, Arms Control Association. They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process, because that was the time.

"They could TRY to hit us. and that in itself might just start WWIII", she said.

Calvo agrees, saying, "It's paradise".

White House renovations underway while president 's away
A major refurbishment is under way in the White House, ordered by US President Donald Trump while he takes an extended holiday. Workers were also seen touching up steps on the South Lawn - cranes overhead - as carpets were removed from the West Wing.

Calvo said laughingly that his island is already at 95 percent occupancy, and when everything calms down it will be at 110 percent occupancy. He doesn't talk so much anymore.

Asked about the president's positive tourism assessment amid escalating nuclear threats, Metcalfe described Trump as an outside thinker and said tourists are continuing to visit Guam.

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

"Kim Jong Un is as insane as typhoons but I am more scared of typhoons because they are real threats", said Rolando Zepeda, 57, a teacher at Saint Anthony's School. "This is a time of threat to the United States".

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

"We've got two military bases here (which is the obvious reason we're even considered a target)", he said, "and I'm certain that the USA military installations have already planned to deter any missile launch directed here". We are rock solid, and we have the best in the world by a factor of five.
