North Korea Threat Will Be Great For Guam's Tourism Industry

The governor praised Mr Trump's handling of the latest escalation of tensions with North Korea, that saw Pyongyang threaten last week to target Guam, a USA territory, with four ballistic missiles.

Calvo, who noted that this is not the first time North Korea has threatened the island, bluntly told Guam residents to simply conduct their daily business "as usual".

"All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", he continued.

North Korea said earlier this week it would complete plans to launch missiles into the waters near Guam by mid-August.

Trump assured Calvo that "We are behind you 1,000 percent".

"Mr. President, as the governor of Guam...and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or confident with you at the helm", Calvo told Trump.

"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", Trump said in prescient tone.




Trump goes on to compliment Guam, as well as Calvo.

"It looks attractive. You know I'm watching".

Calvo concurred, giving Trump a tourism pitch and describing it as "paradise".

"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.

Nothing says "vacation" like the threat of nuclear annihilation, at least according to President Trump.

Despite Mr Trump's reassurances, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. "However, right now, Secretary [of State Rex] Tillerson, Ambassador [to the U.N. Nikki] Haley, you can see the American effort is diplomatically led, it has diplomatic traction, it is gaining diplomatic results".

"The people of Guam know that they're protected, they know that they're safe".
