North Korean military on Thursday said it would prepare a plan by mid-August to strike Guam, a United States island territory in the Western Pacific, with intermediate missiles.
Guam Governor told President Donald Trump he supports him '1,000 percent.' The governor is shown walking with his wife, Christine Lujan Sonido.
Republican governor Eddie Baza Calvo posted a recording of the conversation on his Facebook page on Friday.
The president then takes a jab at his predecessors, telling Calvo, "They should've had me eight years ago or at least somebody with my thought process because that was the time. We've got 95 per cent occupancy and after all this stuff comes down we're going to have 110 per cent occupancy".

He noted that Guam has many buildings made to withstand powerful typhoons, yet he acknowledged that nothing can protect against a thermonuclear attack.
"I wish there would be less partisanship up there", Calvo told Trump.
President Trump also stated he is neither weak nor ineffective and will follow through on his threat of a powerful response if North Korea does launch a missile attack.
Calvo said he "never felt more safe or so confident" with Trump "at the helm".
