Guam Governor Says Trump Called, Assured Island Is Safe

Donald Trump tells Guam Governor you are safe

Governor Eddie Baza Calvo shared a video of his call with President Trump on Facebook, in which the President assured Mr Calvo the USA was behind the remote Pacific island "1000 per cent".

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

"Mr President, as the Governor of Guam, representative of Guam's people, and as an American citizen, I felt never more safe and confident with you at the helm", the Governor said with a smile.

Secretary of State Rex TillersonRex Wayne TillersonChuck Todd: Gorka a "menace" to other staff White House aide insists he was criticizing "fake news" journalists, not Tillerson State responds to Gorka, says Tillerson carries a "big stick" MORE has stressed that the Trump administration is hoping for a diplomatic solution to North Korea, with China and Russian Federation convincing North Korea to "reconsider the current pathway they're on and think about engaging in a dialogue about a different future". "I just wanted to call and say hello".

"We want to talk about a country that has misbehaved for many, many years - decades actually - through numerous administrations and they didn't want to take on the issue and I had no choice but to take it on and I'm taking it on", he said. Asked if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that". "And frankly, you could have said that for the last three presidents".

"I can tell you this - tourism, you're going to go up like 10-fold with the expenditure of no money so I congratulate you", he added.

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the USA military is "rock solid". "We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff comes down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

The president called the U.S. military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five".

Secret back-channel communications between the US and North Korea could be a "good sign" that could pave the way to a peaceful end to a crisis filled on both sides with fiery doomsday rhetoric, a former defense secretary told the Herald. God Bless the people of Guam and God Bless the United States of America.
