As streiff discussed earlier, Guam is looking like Ground Zero in the standoff between the U.S. and North Korea.

The situation is tense, and all the saber-rattling from both Kim Jong-un and President Trump has been troubling.

While there are those of us who found Trump’s comments to be incendiary and needlessly provocative, the true believers have cheered on Trump’s firm stance.

It is in times like this that it pays to have a leader with his head in the game.

Yes.

That’s Trump assuring the governor of Guam in a call Friday morning that he’s about to have a tourism boom.

Or maybe I shouldn’t have used that particular word.

Governor Calvo has gushed praise for Trump, and I hope his faith is not misplaced.
