The Pacific island nation - an unincorporated territory of the USA - was this week threatened by Pyongyang with missile strikes, which has been widely condemned by the global community. "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". Alluding to Mr. Kim, he told the governor, "You notice he hasn't spoken recently". "We encourage everyone to go through their lives and live them like you would do any other day".

"It just looks like a handsome place", Mr. Trump said.

"You know what, that could looks so lovely to me", Trump said.

Calvo responded by saying: "Mr. President, as the governor of Guam representing the people of Guam and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or so confident than with you at the helm".

He added, lowering his voice: "This is between you and I. But you don't talk like they talk". "I'm so thankful and I'm glad you're holding the helm sir". "They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process". "And frankly, you could have said that for the last three presidents".

"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 U.S. military installations have already planned to deter any missile launch directed here". "But you're not going to have a problem".

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise".

Calvo said in response: "We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff calms down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

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

We don't know if or when an attack from the North would happen, but Guam's government is ensuring its people are prepared in case of a threat.

The threats of possible aggression against Guam - often referred to as the "tip of the spear" - have become a focal point of debate about the presence of United States military forces on the island.

North Korea threatened to attack Guam after President Trump offered a short and stern warning against any such action against the United States. "But since we don't have that, we need Trump to do his best to act like one".
