Trump's weird conversation with Guam's governor

How the US Would Stop Missiles Headed to Guam Trump brushes off critics of tough rhetoric

Following North Korea's threat this week to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles towards Guam, President Trump spoke with the US territory's governor over the phone on Friday.

The White House says Presidents Trump and Xi spoke on the phone on Friday night, US time, reiterating their commitment to solve the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Prior to chatting with Calvo, Trump told reporters in New Jersey that he thought Guam would be "very safe".

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

"You've become extremely famous", he told Mr Calvo of the global news coverage following North Korea's threat. "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you", Mr Trump said.

His logic was that with images of the "beautiful" Guam being all over the news, people would be more interested in going there.

The dynamic between the two leaders was apparent Friday, when Calvo posted a video of his end of the call with Trump.

Not everyone is so confident.

While Calvo seemed to accept Trump's reassurances, not everyone is on the same page.

"You know what, that could happen.it looks so attractive to me", Trump said. Without any prompting, the commander in chief then told the Guam governor not to worry about the threats issued by North Korea because it was publicity.

Mr Calvo said he had "never felt so safe" with Mr Trump in charge.

The president responded, "You just went to 110, I think".

"We are with you 1,000 per cent, you are safe", he added. But if the U.S and South Korea try to carry out strikes and overthrow the North Korean government, "China will prevent them from doing so".

Earlier yesterday, Macron had issued a statement voicing his concern at the ballistic and nuclear threat coming from North Korea, adding that the worldwide community should work with Pyongyang to "resume the path of dialogue without conditions".

Trump understands China's efforts to resolve the issue, the report said, and both leaders agreed to keep in close contact.

The White House statement importantly notes that Trump has not yet ruled out a military solution to North Korea's nuclear threat. "But this time, knowing we have a president and a White House that is watching out for us, gives me great comfort".
