The statement followed a tweet by President Trump praising what he described as the growing USA nuclear arsenal, adding, "Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!"

"We are with you 1,000 per cent, you are safe", he adds.

The president also predicted a boom in tourism for the USA territory in light of the North Korean threat. "You are safe", the president said.

"Tourism, I can tell you this - tourism, you're going to go up like 10-fold with the expenditure of no money so I congratulate you", Mr Trump is heard saying on a speakerphone in a video posted to Facebook by Guam's Governor Eddie Baza Calvo.

"Don't worry about a thing and they should have had me eight years ago, or at least somebody with my thought process, because that was the time", Trump said.

During an interview with FOX Business' Melissa Francis of After the Bell, Guam Governor Eddie Calvo shared his uneasiness over Kim Jong Un threats on the USA territory. "It could happen", the president says. "We've got 95 percent occupancy, and after all this stuff calms down, we're going to have 110 percent occupancy".

"I commend the over 20,000 men and women in tourism, many of who were recently honored at the 2017 HERO awards by the Guam Visitors Bureau and Guam Hotel and Restaurant Association", said Calvo.

New United Nations sanctions condemning the North's rapidly developing nuclear program drew fresh ire and threats from Pyongyang. "It shouldn't be Democrats or Republicans, it should everybody be unifying behind our president".

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. We are rock solid and we are the best in the world". So you just take care of yourself.

The statement said that in the event of a strike, people "should 'take cover, take shelter immediately, not look towards what could be the blast area in fears of being blinded, '" Almaguer said.
