  • Japan Denounces N. Korea's Threat to Attack Guam

"North Korea's missiles may be one threat to Guam, but scientists are warning of another: climate change", it reads.

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo has backed Mr Trump, saying "I want a president" who defends American territories with tough talk. They haven't quelled tensions, but could be a foundation for a more diplomacy, according to USA officials and others briefed on the process.

Although nearly every major American news organization has misrepresented North Korea's missile threat as a direct response to Trump's "fire and fury" comment, the threat was actually issued in response to the U.S. Air Force moving B1-B Lancer supersonic bombers to Guam and test-firing a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

The President said he wanted to give his "highest respect and regards" to the people of Guam and that the military is rock solid "we've got the best in the world", he added.

Mr Calvo, a second-term Republican, said he had "never felt more safe or so confident" than with Mr Trump at the helm.

Mr Trump and Mr Calvo were speaking over the phone. "They should have had me eight years ago, or somebody with my thought process". You are safe. We're with you 1,000 percent. "But you're going to be taken care of". So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you, so I'm just so thankful.

"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", Mr Trump said, praising the island's beauty, to which Mr Calvo encouraged Mr Trump to visit.

Mr Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States. "I'll talk to you anytime you need, and again, it looks like just a handsome place".

The call came hours after Trump issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against North Korea, declaring the US military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against USA territories or allies.

Guam's Homeland Security Department on Friday released this pamphlet: "In Case of Emergency - Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat".
