Guam's governor releases Facebook video of call with Trump

Guam's Governor Values Trump 'Fire and Fury,' Dismisses N. Korean Threat as 'Position of Fear' Trump tells Guam Governor 'you are safe'

"All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", the clip, about 45 seconds long, showed the President as saying.

"It is business as usual" on the island, as the Guam Chamber of Commerce said earlier this week in response to North Korea's threats. And I wanted to call you and say hello.

Unprompted, Trump offered this assessment: "Eddie, I have to tell you, you've become extremely famous".

"We are with you 1,000 per cent, you are safe", Mr Trump said. It looks handsome, you know I'm watching...it's such a big story in the news. "I was so shocked I was actually crying". The president told Kim Jong Un the firing of missiles at America would result in "fire and fury" like has never before been seen in the world.

"Kim Jong Un is as insane as typhoons but I am more scared of typhoons because they are real threats", said Rolando Zepeda, 57, a teacher at Saint Anthony's School.

Defense Secretary James Mattis warns North Korea will "lose any conflict it initiates".

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

Mr. Underwood, a former Guam delegate to Congress, said Guam should find a way to take advantage of its relationship with the federal government if the island continues as the platform to project the United States' military power in Asia.

"I feel like we are on the brink of another possible Cuban Missile Crisis type of situation, where one wrong move could lead to a disastrous outcome", O'Neal said. The President assured Calvo, "We are with you a thousand percent", Trump said on the call. Per the official readout the White House released, "President Trump reassured Governor Calvo and our fellow Americans on Guam that United States forces stand ready to ensure the safety and security of the people of Guam, along with the rest of America". So I'm just so thankful.

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. I'm glad you're holding the helm, sir". Don't worry about a thing. "They should have had me eight years ago, or somebody with my thought process". "And frankly, you could have said that for the last three presidents".
