During the conversation Trump also noted how much everyone around the world is talking about and focused on Guam after the missile attack threats by North Korea. Guam Homeland Security additionally released a fact sheet on how to prepare for an imminent missile threat. "In time you will be able to leave a fallout shelter".

The president called the United States military "incredible, "rock solid" and "the best in the world by a factor of five".
