North Korea Threat Will Be Great For Guam's Tourism Industry

Mr Trump agreed that, "They should have had me in years ago ... frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents".

They called me from the White House this morning and both assured me that the people of Guam are safe. But then the conversation took a odd turn when Donald Trump took the opportunity to throw shade on President Obama and assure Calvo that this standoff is actually great for Guam's tourism economy.

Pyongyang said this week it is planning to launch four missiles into waters near the coast of Guam, which is a major USA military hub with a population of 163,000 - all of whom are technically United States citizens.

"And your tourism, I can say this, your tourism is going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you". "It just looks like a lovely place", Trump said.

And he told the former hotel magnate, "We have 95 percent occupancy and after all of this stuff calms down we're going to have 110 percent occupancy".

"So, with all the criticism going on over there for a guy who's doing what's positive, we need a president like you".

If North Korea does launch a missile strike, there is a public warning system in place and a 14-minute window to react, Guam Homeland Security said. "But you're going to be taken care of". 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.

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

These are among the guidelines Guam has released as, amid escalating tensions with North Korea, the small Pacific island contemplates the nightmare scenario of a nuclear strike.

Mr Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

"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.
