After shrieking that USA bomber flights to South Korea were also unacceptable provocations, the North Korean military threatened to use its “treasured nuclear sword” to “reduce to ashes Seoul” and “sweep Guam, the base of provocations, from the surface of the earth”. So, with all the criticism going on over there from a guy who is being targeted, we need a president like you.
He concluded, “May God bless the people of Guam, and may God bless America”.
“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.
“As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam. that they will be met with hell and fury”, Calvo said Wednesday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight“.
Trump then changes direction, and informs the governor of his apparent newfound status as a celebrity.
The president responded, “You just went to 110, I think”. “Please say hello to the people of Guam”. “It looks like a handsome place”. He doesn’t talk so much more anymore and we’ll see how it all works out.
“I just wanted to pay my respect”, Trump said to Calvo over the phone. “But your’e not going to have a problem”. Alluding to Mr. Kim, he told the governor, “You notice he hasn’t spoken recently”.
The conversation, in which both men praised each other, differed drastically from Mr. Trump’s contentious calls with leaders of Australia and Mexico in the early days of his administration.
Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera told the Japanese parliament that its American-designed Aegis destroyers are capable of shooting down North Korean missiles and that any attack on Guam would be considered an “existential threat to Japan” under defense treaties with the United States. It shouldn’t be Democrats or Republicans. But regardless, our military is so incredible, and there’s no partisanship there, believe me.
“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”, Guam Visitors Bureau marketing director Josh Tyquiengco told AFP. So you just take care of yourself.
Trump tweeted: “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely”.
