"So, with all of the criticism over there ..., we need a president like you", Calvo said. "We are with you 1,000 per cent", the media reported on Saturday.

Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo says officials haven't raised the USA territory's threat level even after Pyongyang laid out plans to strike near the island. We are with you 1,000 per cent.

In response, Calvo said: "Mr. President, as the governor of Guam, representing the people of Guam, and as an American citizen, I have never felt more safe and so confidence with you at the helm". "You don't worry about a thing".

Trump then reiterated that "you're going to be taking care of. All over the world they're talking about Guam and they're talking about you", the clip, about 45 seconds long, showed the President as saying.

Trump has been escalating his rhetoric against North Korea, but says he hopes "it will all work out".

North Korean military on Thursday said it would prepare a plan by mid-August to strike Guam, a USA island territory in the Western Pacific, with intermediate missiles.

Politico said it was not clear how much detail Trump would provide in his announcement, but that administration officials expected U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer to open a section 301 probe.

Trump on Friday furthered the rhetoric, saying the United States was "locked and loaded" to deal with the nuclear issue on the Korean peninsula.
