Eddie Baza Calvo, governor of Guam, spoke to President Trump Friday about North Korea's threat to launch a nuclear missile at the island by the middle of August.

Although nearly every major American news organization has misrepresented North Korea's missile threat as a direct response to Trump's "fire and fury" comment, the threat was actually issued in response to the U.S. Air Force moving B1-B Lancer supersonic bombers to Guam and test-firing a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

Calvo said that as the governor of Guam and as an American he "has never felt so confident" in his territory's security. Asked if the US was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that".

Before the call ended, Calvo invited Trump to Guam, and Trump told him to come see him in the White House the next time he's in Washington.

"You've become extremely famous", he told Mr Calvo of the global news coverage following North Korea's threat. "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you", Mr Trump said.

Mr Calvo responded by agreeing his home was "paradise" and had "99 per cent occupancy". They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process, because that was the time.

"Good morning, good morning", the president is heard saying to Calvo. "I'll talk to you anytime you need, and again, it looks like just a handsome place".

"You seem like a hell of guy", Trump said later in the call.
