Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize Over North Korea

Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize Over North Korea

More than a dozen House Republicans, led by Rep. Luke Messer, formally nominated the president in a letter sent to the Nobel Committee on Wednesday.

The letter also says. Trump's "maximum pressure" approach of tightening the noose around the North with economic sanctions and military threats was largely responsible for forcing Jong-un to the negotiating table, they said.

The other lawmakers who signed the letter include: Reps Mark Meadows, R-N.C., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Diane Black, R-Tenn., and Steve King, R-Iowa.

South Korea's President Moon Jae-in is another fan, and has suggested Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize. The Prize Committee has not announce the nominees. That's very nice", a smiling Trump said as supporters at a campaign-style rally last Saturday in MI chanted "No-bel!

"I think he should be considered, absolutely". "It's because the last American president they didn't like won one in his first year on the job just for showing up".

The two neighbors began mending fences in January, when North Korean leader Kim Jung-un said he would be interested in talks between officials from the two countries. Messer explained, "The peace through strength approach to national security is delivering results, not just in North Korea".

Dr Fox, one of the most committed Brexiteers in Cabinet, was scathing about the Lords vote - one of three defeats on Monday night. Fox said on Tuesday: "I don't think there is a customs union that could ever be acceptable".


The Trump administration has led a global effort to impose ever stricter sanctions on North Korea and the USA president exchanged bellicose threats with Kim in the past year over North Korea's development of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Nobel Committee Chairman Thorbjorn Jagland presents President Barack Obama with the Nobel Prize medal and diploma during the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Raadhuset Main Hall at Oslo City Hall in Oslo, Norway, Dec. 10, 2009. "The only thing we need is peace", Moon had said.

It is noted that the rules of nomination for the Nobel prize is relatively free.

No matter what the likelihood is for Trump's getting a Nobel, his public image among South Koreans has been improving markedly as the mood on the Korean peninsula shifts from fears of war to hopes of peace.

ICYMI asks members of the public whether Donald Trump deserves an award as prestigious as the Nobel Peace Prize after it was revealed the US President was on the 2019 shortlist. The letter gives several reasons why the president deserves the award.
