"They should have had me eight years ago..."
U.S. military forces "stand ready" to safeguard Guam after North Korea threatened to fire ballistic missiles toward the American Pacific island territory, the White House said early Saturday.
The telephone call between the Guam Governor and President Trump was filmed and posted to Eddie Calvo's Facebook page.
He continued, "We're going to do a great job for you".
"I just wanted to pay my respects, and we are with you 1,000 percent". As part of the short conversation, Trump also assured Calvo that he had become "extremely famous" as a result of Guam being in the press and said that tourism in the US territory would go up "tenfold".
"I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous".
"Mr President, as the governor of Guam, representative of Guam's people, and as an American citizen, I felt never more safe and so confident with you at the helm", the governor said with a smile. "All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", the clip, about 45 seconds long, showed the President as saying. It's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a attractive place. It just looks like a lovely place.
Mr. Calvo agreed: "It's a paradise". We are with you 1,000 per cent.
The president responded, "You just went to 110, I think". On Friday, the president had issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against US territories or allies. The U.S. territory has a population of 160,000, and is around 2,200 miles southeast of North Korea.
Trump continues, "This is between you and I, but you don't talk like they talk, you can't do that, and you can't do that with people like us". In response, President Donald Trump has warned North Korea repeatedly that if it takes such action, the USA will hit back.
