"We encourage everyone to go through their lives and live them like you would do any other day", he said.

"I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous". Lt. Gov. Ray Tenorio (R-Guam) told the FOX Business Network's Maria Bartiromo of Mornings with Maria, that though they have not been in direct contact with President Trump about the threat, "We are in communication with the Department of Defense, through the Joint Region Marianas, we're in contact with the military leaders here, Admiral Chatfield of the U.S. Navy and of course are corresponding with our civil defense and Homeland Security".

DPRK's military said in a statement on Thursday that it would prepare a plan by mid-August to strike Guam, a US island territory in the Western Pacific, with intermediate missiles.

Calvo agrees. "It's paradise, " he says.

Trump assured Calvo that "We are behind you 1,000 percent". "We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff comes down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

Referring to an "imminent missile threat", it includes advice like: "Do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you". It just looks like a attractive place.


"If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, under concrete structure or below ground if possible", the sheet adds.
In the President's words they are behind us "1000 percent."As the head of the Government of Guam, I appreciate their reassurances that my family, my friends, everyone on this island, are all safe".

Trump continued to exchange pleasantries with Calvo, saying that the governor had "become famous", and suggesting that he would visit the USA territory in the future.

"We are the best in the world by a factor of five", he said.


If correct, and if the U.S. allows the missiles to launch in the first place, that leaves 17 minutes for tracking stations on land and sea - including the Pine Gap facility near Alice Springs - to calculate, target and try to destroy the missiles.

"The U.S. President at [golf] links again let out a load of nonsense about 'fire and fury, ' failing to grasp the ongoing grave situation", a commander of the North Korean army said, as reported by CNN.
