Trump jokes that North Korea's threats will boost tourism to Guam

Trump called Guam a beautiful place and said the threats from North Korea would boost tourism to the U.S. territory

Guam continues to be a top tourist destination even though it is in the center of the US-North Korea tensions, which continue to rise with every day that passes.

"You seem like a hell of guy", Trump said later in the call.

"We're going to do a great job, don't worry about a thing", Mr Trump responded.

"And your tourism, I can say this, your tourism is going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you".

This week Pyongyang's state-run news agency said its army would complete plans in mid-August to fire four intermediate-range missiles over Japan to land near Guam, a U.S. territory and military base, amid increasingly heated rhetoric over the North Korea's nuclear weapons program. "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you".

During the phone call Mr Calvo laments criticism of Mr Trump, saying "from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you".

Before speaking to Mr Calvo, Mr Trump told reporters in New Jersey that he believed Guam would be "very safe" and threatened North Korea with "big, big trouble" if it launched an attack.

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

The conversation, in which both men praised each other, differed drastically from Mr. Trump's contentious calls with leaders of Australia and Mexico in the early days of his administration. Guam Homeland Security additionally released a fact sheet on how to prepare for an imminent missile threat. "They should have had me eight years ago.I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous".

The flyer also advises residents to lie flat on the ground, look away from the flash or fireball, and shower with lots of soap and water to help remove radioactive contamination.

"We are the best in the world by a factor of five", he says.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States escalated this week amid increasingly heated rhetoric between Washington and Pyongyang.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Saturday (Aug 12) blamed North Korea for the stand-off with the United States and said London wants a diplomatic end to the crisis.
