"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", Governor Calvo told President Trump. But the fact that the USA and North Korea are still talking while mutually threatening each other with missile fire shows that the public drama doesn't translate to private anger or calls to action.
"You've become extremely famous".
Asked about the president's positive tourism assessment amid escalating nuclear threats, Metcalfe described Trump as an outside thinker and said tourists are continuing to visit Guam.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has threatened to fire a missile to land near Guam, a strategic USA military base.
North Korea has made no secret of its plans to develop a nuclear-tipped missile able to strike the United States and has ignored calls to halt its weapons programs. And everyone who doesn't want a side of radiation poisoning with their piña colada went, "huh?" "It's a good sign" that communication still takes place, he said.
Mr Calvo responded by agreeing his home was "paradise" and had "99 per cent occupancy".
Guam Homeland Security and Office of Civil Defense released a fact sheet on how to survive a nuclear attack via their social media on Thursday, CNN reported.
It also advises that people should avoid eye contact with the flash of the fireball because that could make one blind. "In time you will be able to leave a fallout shelter".
Mr Trump agreed that, "They should have had me in years ago ... frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents".
"With all the criticism that's going on over there, from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you".
The president called the U.S. military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five".
"It is business as usual" on the island, as the Guam Chamber of Commerce said earlier this week in response to North Korea's threats.
If correct, and if the USA 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.
North Korea has also threatened to fire intermediate-range ballistic missiles at Japan, the Daily Mail notes.
According to the source, the talks are being held between Ambassador Joseph Yun, the US special representative for North Korea policy, and Pak Song Il, a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission, using what's known as the "New York channel", which has been an avenue of communication between the USA and North Korea throughout the years.
