It was a response to Trump's unusually stern warning to North Korea, when he said: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the US".

Eddie Baza Calvo (R) posted a video of his end of the call on Facebook, offering a candid glimpse of the dynamic between the two leaders.

The president also predicted a boom in tourism for the US territory in light of the North Korean threat.

Calvo, who noted that this is not the first time North Korea has threatened the island, bluntly told Guam residents to simply conduct their daily business "as usual". You are safe. We're with you 1,000 percent.

Pyongyang said this week it is planning to launch four missiles into waters near the coast of Guam, which is a major U.S. military hub with a population of 163,000 - all of whom are technically USA citizens.

"As an American citizen I have never felt more safe or so confident with you at the helm", Mr Calvo said.

"Good morning, good morning", the president is heard saying to Calvo. They should have had me eight years ago, somebody with my thought process, because that was the time. "I wanted to call you and say hello".

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.

Calvo said there was "concern and worry" among the people of Guam but "no panic".

"If an attack warning is issued, take cover as quickly as you can, under concrete structure or below ground if possible", the sheet adds.

Trump then says, "We're going to do a great job for you".

"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", Mr Trump said, praising the island's beauty, to which Mr Calvo encouraged Mr Trump to visit.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States escalated this week amid increasingly heated rhetoric between Washington and Pyongyang.

"So, with all the criticism going on over there for a guy who's doing what's positive, we need a president like you".

Guam's Office of Civil Defense started passing out flyers on Friday to help residents prepare for a missile attack from North Korea.
