Guam defends Trump's fiery words over North Korea nuclear threat as it finds itself in middle of global crisis
The Governor of Guam, the US territory threatened with attack by North Korea, has backed Donald Trump’s fiery rhetoric toward the nuclear-armed nation, saying that a President who whole-heartedly embraces forceful retaliation over attacks on US territory is “what I want”.

It is not the first time North Korea has threatened Guam, a small United States territory that hosts a US military outpost.
