Guam Gov: Trump's 'Hell and Fury' Justified If NK Attacks

Graham Time for new approach on N. Korea

North Korea's threat to launch nuclear missiles toward Guam will cause the US territory's tourism to "go up like tenfold", President Donald Trump told Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo Friday evening.

But amid the reassurances, something seemed... off.

"All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", he continued. Calvo had the president on speaker phone, and posted a video of the exchange to his Facebook page. And I think your tourism, I can say this, your tourism, you're going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you.

Eddie, I have to tell you, you've become extremely famous.

They called me from the White House this morning and both assured me that the people of Guam are safe. It looks lovely. You know I'm watching.

"It just looks like a lovely place", Mr Trump said. Speaking at a photo op at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, Trump warned North Korea not to threaten the United States again or it would "face fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo says officials haven't raised the US territory's threat level even after Pyongyang laid out plans to strike near the island.

But now Hughton believes the Spaniard can put those experiences to good use to push his side firmly into title contention. With the Premier League season kicking off on Friday, we look at five questions ahead of the new campaign.

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

So I don't know about everyone else, but an impending missile strike is not exactly what I'm looking for when it comes to an island paradise getaway.

Former State Department official Joel S. Wit, the founder of 38 North, a website that analyzes North Korea, told Politico that Trump's claims risked undermining diplomatic efforts.

Rubio was among many Republicans in the 2016 presidential primary and he and Trump had a heated and at times publicly contentious relationship previous year.

"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", Calvo told Trump.

"A flier titled "Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat" says that if an attack warning is issued, people should take cover quickly" under concrete structure or below ground if possible".
