President Donald Trump spoke Friday with Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo, who posted to his social media accounts a video of the three-minute phone conversation, assuring the lawmaker that his constituents are safe in light of North Korea's threat to fire ICBMs at the island. "We are with you a thousand percent. She's certainly not referring to the United States, that I can tell you".
