China is urging restraint when it  comes to the volatile situation with North Korea.  The White House  confirmed early today that President Trump had spoken by phone with  Chinese President Xi Jinping.  The state-run  broadcaster China Central Television said President Xi made clear that  all sides should, quote "avoid words and deeds that increase tensions on  the Korean Peninsula."  A statement from the White House said  "President Trump and President Xi agreed North Korea must stop its  provocative and escalatory behavior."  

President Trump is assuring the  governor of Guam that Washington stands with the U.S. territory  "one-thousand percent."  During a brief, roughly three-minute  conversation Trump also told Governor Eddie Calvo that he's noticed that  Calvo has become "extremely famous" lately and predicted that tourism  there would, quote "go up like tenfold."  The Republican governor  thanked Trump for his support and said he'd never felt more confident  and safe than with him in charge.
