The tiny US territory of Guam came under the global spotlight after North Korea said Wednesday that it's studying whether to launch a missile test toward the island.

The North's official KCNA news service, for its part, accused Trump in an editorial of "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war", calling the United States "the heinous nuclear war fanatic". The President assured Calvo, "We are with you a thousand percent", Trump said on the call. "We are with you 1,000 per cent", the media reported on Saturday. Trump indicated North Korea has been threatening other nations long enough and it was past time for a strong response.
