Governor Eddie Baza Calvo shared a video of his call with President Trump on Facebook, in which the President assured Mr Calvo the USA was behind the remote Pacific island "1000 per cent".

USA Today reported that the threats from North Korean President Kim Jon-un to send missiles into the waters around Guam may affect the island's tourism industry, which brings 1.3 million visitors a year.

"All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", he continued.

Mr Trump praised the scenic beauty of the island, which is roughly 3379 kilometres southeast of Pyongyang.

"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", Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo (R) said, according to a video posted to his Facebook page. "It looks lovely, you know I'm watching.it's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a attractive place".

"So, with all the criticism going on over there for a guy who's doing what's positive, we need a president like you. You are safe", Trump told Calvo at the start of the three minute call. He added that, "The great leaders I've seen don't threaten unless they're ready to act, and I'm not sure President Trump is ready to act".

Calvo agrees. "It's paradise, " he says.

Then Trump, ever the businessman, started talking about how good this situation will be for Guam's tourism industry.

The president called the United States military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five".

Trump, speaking to reporters from the New Jersey golf resort where he's vacationing, said North Korea had been "getting away with a tragedy that can't be allowed". 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.

In an earlier call, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly told Calvo: "We are all over this". God Bless the people of Guam and God Bless the United States of America.
