President Trump spoke with the governor of Guam on Friday after North Korea threatened earlier this week to launch missiles toward the island by mid-August.

“Mr. President, as the governor of Guam…and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or confident with you at the helm,” Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo (R) said, according to a video posted to his Facebook page.

“Don’t worry about a thing,” President Trump responded. “They should have had me eight years ago…I have to say, Eddie, you’re going to become extremely famous. All over the world they’re talking about Guam and they’re talking about you.”
“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,” Trump can be heard saying over the phone. “It looks beautiful, you know I’m watching…it’s such a big story in the news. It just looks like a beautiful place.”

Tensions have escalated between the U.S. and North Korea as the communist regime continues testing and expanding its nuclear program, reporting this week that it can now fit nuclear warheads on missiles.

North Korea said earlier this week it would complete plans to launch missiles into the waters near Guam by mid-August.

“The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about ‘fire and fury,’ failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation,” a commander of the North Korean army said, as reported by CNN. “It seems that he has not yet understood the statement. Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work with him.”

Tensions between North Korea and the US have escalated this week amid increasingly heated rhetoric between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But Guam’s governor said Thursday he supported Trump’s stern warning to North Korea, saying “I want a president that says that.”
