Mr. Trump responded, "We're going to do a great job".

President Trump assured Gov. Eddie Calvo of Guam in a phone call that us forces will protect the American territory from any aggression by North Korea.

Trump went on to congratulate Calvo for "becoming extremely famous", adding, "All over the world they're talking about Guam". On Friday, the president had issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against US territories or allies.

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise".

Trump again reassures Calvo, saying, "We'll see how it all works out but you're not going to have a problem". "We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff comes down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. It included information on how to build an emergency supply kit, make an emergency family plan, make a list of potential concrete shelters near your home, and to not look at the flash or fireball because it can blind you.

"Mr. President, as the governor of Guam.and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe or confident with you at the helm", Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo (R) said, according to a video posted to his Facebook page.

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

"Good Morning, my dear people of Guam", began the governor. "Even though it might be an empty threat, we do need to think about it as a possibility", said a 23-year-old student in Guam.

The phone call follows the President's latest tweet in which he wrote the military is "locked and loaded" if North Korea acts "unwisely". But Guam's governor said Thursday he supported Trump's stern warning to North Korea, saying "I want a president that says that".

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