U.S. could launch a preemptive strike against North Korea

NBC video

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo reminded Fox News of that on Wednesday (the network evidently needed a lesson), hours after North Korea threatened to fire four missiles at the island.

During the phone call, Trump also noted he thinks Guam's tourism will increase "tenfold" in light of the situation. The President and Chief of Staff General John Kelly called Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo and assured him that they are behind Guam 1,000-percent. "You can't do that with people like us".

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

Mr Trump agrees, saying "They should have had me in years ago. frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents". "I'm glad you're holding the helm".

"If I could tell Trump one thing", she said, "it would be. when dealing with an unstable powder keg, don't be a match". "And even if they could successfully target us, the USA military installations here have defense capabilities which I feel pretty confident would keep anything from actually hitting us".

Calvo agreed, saying, "It's paradise. But you're going to be taken care of".

North Korea says its Hwasong-12 missiles would take just 1,065 seconds to complete their 3,356km flight over Japan before splashing down in waters off the coast of Guam.

Calvo said laughingly that his island is already at 95 percent occupancy, and when everything calms down it will be at 110 percent occupancy.

Mr. Trump had threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea for any provocation. He doesn't talk so much anymore.

"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.

"His bellicose statements will not make our nation any safer and will only further elevate tensions between the United States and North Korea ..."

"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 United States military installations have already planned to deter any missile launch directed here".

In the phone call Mr Trump goes on to praise the island's beauty, which he says he has seen in news reports about the missile threat.

"The circumstances are unfortunate, but this is a good opportunity for us to educate the world about Guam and our culture, about where we are and who we are", Josh Tyquiengco, the bureau's marketing director, told the Agence France-Presse.
