The governor has already addressed the people of Guam in a special message where he relayed President Trump's assurances that despite the rhetoric from North Korea, the population "is safe" - a message which was also underlined by US Chief of Staff John Kelly.

President Trump called Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo to express his support to the US territory amid the threats of an imminent strike from North Korea.

Admist ongoing threats from North Korea targeting Guam and the surrounding waters, no state of emergency has been declared. "It looks lovely, you know I'm watching.it's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a attractive place". 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. All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you.

As the head of the Government of Guam, I appreciate their reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe.

Such threats are not at all new for Guamanians, and awareness among mainland Americans is simply heightened now because of the attention from the media, said Metcalfe, a national committeewoman for the Republican Party of Guam who ran for Congress in 2014 and 2016.

"I'm glad you're holding the helm, Sir". According to a video tweeted by the Guam News on Friday, Calvo while talking to Trump via an office phone switched the call to speaker phone to enable viewers hear the conversation clearly, Xinhua news agency reported.

"However, right now Secretary [of State Rex] Tillerson and [United Nations] Ambassador [Nikki] Haley, you can see the American effort is diplomatically led, it has diplomatic traction it is gaining diplomatic results, and I want to stay right here, right now".

Unprompted, Trump offered this assessment: "Eddie, I have to tell you, you've become extremely famous". It's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a handsome place. However, the remarks made by Donald Trump about the boost in Guam's tourism, if the attack materializes, has anxious a section of the people.

"His bellicose statements will not make our nation any safer and will only further elevate tensions between the United States and North Korea".

"I think Guam is being used as a kind of pawn in this game", said Robert Underwood, president of the University of Guam.
