Here’s what some people in Guam are thinking right now

President Trump tweeted Friday that the USA military is "locked and loaded" if North Korea acts "unwisely", escalating an exchange of threats between the nuclear-armed nations. Russia, however, has said that the missiles were intermediate range.

The president spoke with Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo on Saturday to reassure him and residents here. It suggested building an emergency kit and having a family plan, and in the event of an attack, lying flat and avoiding looking directly at the blast.

Trump previously warned North Korea it faced the "fire and fury" of the American arsenal should it try attacking us soil.

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough", he said.

The US leader has been in a battle of words with the secretive state, tweeting yesterday that military solutions were now "locked and loaded" if the East Asian country acted "unwisely".

"It is scary because I lived through the second world war and I certainly don't want to see another one", she says. "I would like Russian Federation and the United States and China and Pakistan and many other countries that have nuclear weapons get rid of them".

China has repeatedly urged a resumption of long-dormant six-party talks to peacefully resolve the crisis, but its position has been overshadowed by the emerging brinkmanship between Trump and Kim.

United States President Donald Trump has further escalated his feud with North Korea and Kim Jong-un on Friday morning stating that the USA is ready for action if the nation should "act unwisely".

History has demonstrated that China will not sit out a war in the Korean peninsula, and United States allies South Korea and Japan will bear the brunt.

China has issued a stark warning to Donald Trump not to engage in "words and actions" that could worsen the already raised tensions in the Korean peninsular.

If it is designated as such, missile interception and protection of USA military vessels will be allowed. He added saying China is ready to pay the price, however, the aim of such sanctions should be to bring North Korea to the negotiating table.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she doesn't see a military solution to rising tensions between the United States and North Korea and called for a de- escalation of the rhetoric.

"At the moment, China-US relations are in a state of good development", Trump said, according to CCTV. He said: "We are with you a thousand percent".
