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 the Friday call the administrator posted to Facebook. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

The full call Calvo expelled was much some-more minute than the White House readout of the 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 the White House said. “President Trump reassured Governor Calvo and the associate Americans on Guam that United States forces mount prepared to safeguard the reserve and confidence of the people of Guam, along with the rest of America. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly spoke alone to Calvo progressing in the day.”
