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

US President Donald Trump on Saturday reassured Guam it was secure amid mounting regional tensions, vowing that American military forces "stand ready" to safeguard the US Pacific island territory against a belligerent North Korea.

"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".

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has threatened to fire missiles at Guam, home to US military bases in the South Pacific, in an escalating war of words over Pyongyang's nuclear-weapons program.

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise".

"You know, they're showing so much, it's such a big story in the news and it just looks like a handsome place", he says. "We are with you 1000%".

While Trump maintained a lighthearted tone, Guam's Office of Civil Defense started passing out flyers on Friday to help residents prepare for a missile attack from North Korea. "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. "You are safe", Trump told Calvo at the outset of the call, which appeared to last about three minutes, according to the video.

"If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, under concrete structure or below ground if possible", the sheet adds.

"We are with you 1,000 percent", Mr. Trump said in the call to Mr. Calvo, who invited the president to the island. It just looks like a attractive place. We are rock solid, and we have the best in the world by a factor of five.

Tension in the region has risen since North Korea carried out two nuclear bomb tests past year and two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July. "I've had enough briefings with the military, there's a multilayered defense starting from Korea, Japan as well as in the western Pacific as well as our assets here in Guam with the THAAD missile defense system that American communities will be protected". "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".
