While the media and Democrats cast Donald Trump as an unhinged loose cannon over his “fire and fury” threat to North Korea, the President has at least one person offering praise – the Governor of Guam.
North Korea recently announced they have developed plans for a military strike on the U.S. island territory of Guam.
The threat was met with an immediate response from the President that America would unleash ‘fire and fury’ should the rogue nation take any action on the U.S. island territory.

Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said that’s exactly the kind of President the United States needs in dealing with Kim Jong Un and his threats.
“I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the west coast that they will be met with hell and fury,” Calvo said.
Via Fox News Insider:
Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo (R) said President Trump was correct to threaten a furious response to any attack on U.S. sovereign soil, but warned that warmongering on its own is dangerous.
Trump said earlier that an attack on the United States would be met with “fire and fury.”
“As far as I’m concerned, as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attack Guam, attack Honolulu, attack the west coast, they will be met with Hell and fury,” he said.
Calvo saved his criticisms for Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) whose rhetoric actually involved saying the U.S. is prepared to offensively attack and destroy North Korea.
“There is a military option to destroy North Korea’s program and North Korea itself,” Graham said. “If thousands die, they’re going to die over there.”

“What I’m concerned about is if a U.S. senator says ‘Initiate an attack’ and causing a war… this is American sovereign soil…” Calvo responded. “So it’s important that as we make decisions that those folks that are in a position of leadership that they understand too that war is the last option.”
To recap – The governor of an island territory being threatened by North Korea believes the entrenched congressman is not handling the crisis properly, but President Trump has responded perfectly.
Just another scenario in which reality differs from what Democrats, Republicans, and the media are telling the American people.
