Guam’s administrator releases Facebook video of call with Trump

President Trump voiced his support for Guam and told Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo tourism would swell amid concerns that North Korea could strike that U.S. territory, according to a recording of a Friday call a administrator posted to Facebook. 

Mr. Trump positive Calvo a U.S. is “with we a thousand percent.” Calvo, in response, pronounced he has “never felt some-more protected or some-more confident” than with Mr. Trump during a helm. The call noted a initial time a dual spoke given North Korea threatened a island.

Earlier in a week, North Korea threatened to strike within miles of a U.S. territory, as tensions between a U.S. and North Korea light over a country’s nuclear weapons program. A new U.S. comprehension research found North Korea has reached a poignant milestone in a end to be able of carrying an intercontinental ballistic barb that can strech a U.S. mainland. 

Mr. Trump joked that Calvo — and his tiny island easterly of a Philippines — are now “extremely famous.”

“Eddie, we have to tell we you’ve turn intensely famous,” Mr. Trump told a Guam governor. “All over a universe they’re articulate about Guam and they’re articulate about we and we consider tourism — we can contend this, your tourism, you’re going to go adult like 10 overlay with a output of no money. So we honour you.”

Calvo pronounced laughingly that his island is already during 95 percent occupancy, and when all calms down it will be during 110 percent occupancy. 

Mr. Trump, according to a call Calvo released, told Calvo to revisit Washington, after Calvo invited him to revisit Guam. 

The full call Calvo expelled was most some-more minute than a White House readout of a call. White House readouts of calls with unfamiliar leaders are notoriously lacking in detail. 

“President Donald J. Trump spoke yesterday with Guam Governor Eddie Calvo,” a call readout from a White House said. “President Trump reassured Governor Calvo and a associate Americans on Guam that United States army mount prepared to safeguard a reserve and confidence of a people of Guam, along with a rest of America. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly spoke alone to Calvo progressing in a day.”
