UPDATE: Trump warns North Korea against attacking Guam

US President Donald Trump waits to speak on the phone with Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar to congratulate him on his recent election victory in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, DC, on June 27, 2017.

"Don't worry about a thing", Trump said.

"All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", he continued. It's such a big story in the news, it just looks like a lovely place.

Mr Calvo agrees: "It's paradise". On Friday, the president had issued fresh threats of swift and forceful retaliation against nuclear North Korea, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded" and warning that the communist country's leader "will regret it fast" if he takes any action against US territories or allies.

The two had a nice friendly chat, wherein Trump assured Calvo the U.S.is with Guam "1000 percent" and Calvo in turn talks about how much the people of Guam appreciate everything POTUS is doing for them - which is odd since from an outsider's perspective it looks like he's doing his best to goad North Korea into blowing them up.

UNDATED (AP) - Officials in Guam are disseminating fact sheets to help residents prepare for a possible missile strike from North Korea. "Fallout radiation loses its intensity fairly rapidly".

Visitors to the Homeland Security website are also directed to an American Red Cross guide on how to "shelter-in-place" during a chemical or radiation emergency.

"I have to say, Eddie, you're going to be extremely famous", Trump said.

During the phone call Mr Calvo laments criticism of Mr Trump, saying "from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you".

He then reassures Mr Calvo, who he describes as a "hell of a guy", telling him the U.S. military is "rock solid". On Aug. 11, he said that military solutions are "locked and loaded" should North Korea continue its threats.
