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

Ray Tenorio is the current lieutenant governor of the Guam.

Roughly 160,000 people live on Guam, a South Pacific island that's considered sovereign USA territory, and they're all US citizens.

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

But then the conversation took a unusual 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. But regardless, our military is so incredible, and there's no partisanship there, believe me.

In talking about the heightened global attention to the island, Margaret Metcalfe, director of Calvo's Washington office, said: "None of this is good publicity". Guam is equipped with a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system created to shoot down incoming missiles.

Trump said: "You just went to 110 per cent, I think".

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. They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process, because that was the time.

Calvo, for his part, struck a similarly levelheaded tone in his interview with Fox. "We encourage everyone to go through their lives and live them like you would do any other day". Guam elects a delegate to the U.S. House, but that delegate isn't allowed to vote on a bill's final passage.

"Definitely concern was the first feeling, but then of course anger that Guam is put into the crosshairs of the situation", he said.

"His bellicose statements will not make our nation any safer and will only further elevate tensions between the United States and North Korea ... It looks like a handsome place".

"There is a defense umbrella contained within South Korea, there is a defense umbrella for Japan, there are naval assets between Korea, Japan and Guam, and there is a missile defense system of Guam that make up a multi-level defensive umbrella".

Beyond having commonsense discussions and drafting emergency plans, O'Neal's daily routine hasn't changed. "You are safe, we are with you 1,000%". "We need someone with a cool head in charge".

"The circumstances are unfortunate, but this is a good opportunity for us to educate the world about Guam and our culture, about where we are and who we are", Josh Tyquiengco, the bureau's marketing director, told the Agence France-Presse.

"I have to say, Eddie, you're going to become extremely famous".
