Guam Governor Says Trump Called, Assured Island Is Safe

Trump ramps up Guam assurances over N. Korea threat

US President Donald Trump has told Guam Governor Eddie Calvo over the phone that "You are safe".

North Korea threatened to fire missiles near Guam amid a war of words between the isolated regime and U.S.

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 that as the governor of Guam and as an American he "has never felt so confident" in his territory's security.

"Don't worry about a thing and they should have had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process, because that was the time", Trump said. "So I'm just so thankful, and I'm glad you're holding the helm, sir".

Guam's governor took a personal call from the president of the United States and streamed it on Facebook.

Trump praised the military, bashed an "obstructionist Congress" and told Calvo how tourism would be boosted for Guam without spending money. "Frankly, you could've said that for the last three presidents".

"You've become extremely famous".

Meanwhile here on Guam, the threat level remains unchanged.

It urges residents to identify concrete shelters near their homes - brick structures also work - and instructs people to dispose of their clothes and wash heavily after an attack in an effort to reduce the impacts of radiation.

To prevent radioactive material from spreading, people should remove their outer layer of clothing, seal it in a plastic bag, and get it as far away as possible. "Wash your hair with shampoo, or soap and water".
