"We are with you a thousand percent", Trump said, according to video of the call posted on Calvo's Facebook page.

"You know what, that could happen.it looks so handsome to me", Trump said. We are with you 1,000 per cent.

Trump continued to exchange pleasantries with Calvo, saying that the governor had "become famous", and suggesting that he would visit the USA territory in the future.

"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. "At the same time, we have both our civil government work in collaboration with the military regional command here that is prepared for any type of contingency". You can't do that.

While Guam is generally calm about the escalating threats of a missile attack, some were not thrilled by the tone of the conversation between the two men. "They're leaders discussing a rise in fame and tourism, while the world is watching our island carefully to see if we'll still be here tomorrow".

Activists who are advocating Guam's independence from the United States argue that the presence of the military installations has made the island a magnet for attack.

The United States moved a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) unit to Andersen in response and conducted show-of-force B-52 bomber flights.

"I think we should get more out of this relationship than what we are getting now", he said. So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you.

I take issue with your editorial that includes a description of "residents of Guam glancing nervously skyward" ("Alternative fact of the Week: Trump's nuclear arsenal", August 10). "So I'm just so thankful, and I'm glad you're holding the helm, sir".

Trump responded, "Well you're right about that, but unfortunately, you know, we're living with a very obstructionist group, but maybe that will change". Don't worry about a thing.

"As far as I'm concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the West Coast, that they will be met with hell and fury", Calvo told host Brian Kilmeade on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

"For the United States, it's the place from which you can project power into Asia in an unfettered way", Underwood says.
