Donald Trump has told Guam's Governor North Korea's threat to launch a missile strike near the remote Pacific island will boost tourism, while assuring the politician the USA stands behind the territory "1,000 per cent". "They should have had me eight years ago.I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous". But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that".

As part of the short conversation, Trump also assured Calvo that he had become "extremely famous" as a result of Guam being in the press and said that tourism in the US territory would go up "tenfold".

On Wednesday, Mr Trump followed up his "fire and fury" warning with a boast about U.S. nuclear capabilities.

In the days since, Mr Trump has ratcheted up the rhetoric, saying his words were not tough enough and then boasting that the American military was "locked and loaded".

"Expect to stay inside for at least 24 hours unless otherwise told by authorities", the advisory warned.

Referring to an "imminent missile threat", it includes advice like: "Do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you". Take cover behind anything that might offer protection. "Lie flat on the ground and cover your head". All over the world they're talking about Guam.

"Guam is more than a military base".

Gov Calvo has also sought to allay anxiety among his citizens, telling them "there is no threat to our island".

Guam hosts two USA military installations and 6,000 U.S. soldiers - making it an attractive target for the North.

"It just looks like a attractive place", Mr Trump said.

I just got off the phone with Chief of Staff General John Kelly and with the President of the United States of America. "The wonderful island of Guam is very well protected".

In addition to the U.S. military bases, Guam is also equipped with the sophisticated THAAD weapons system which is capable of destroying intermediate-range missiles in the final phase of flight.

Meanwhile here on Guam, the threat level remains unchanged.
