In a phone call to Republican Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo President Donald Trump reassured him not to “worry about a thing” adding, “I have to say, Eddie, you’re going to become extremely famous. All over the world they’re talking about Guam and they’re talking about you.”
President Trump continued in the phone call, “And your tourism, I can say this, your tourism is going to go up like tenfold with the expenditure of no money, so I congratulate you. It looks beautiful, you know I’m watching…it’s such a big story in the news. It just looks like a beautiful place.”
President Trump continues the war of words with North Korea after the country threatened to launch missiles towards Guam by mid-August. “Nobody loves a peaceful solution more than President Trump,” Trump told reporters at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley and national security adviser H.R. McMaster.
However, he added, “we could also have a bad solution.”
