Trump formally nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by House Republicans

  • President Trump “The main thing I want to get is peace.”

"By calling him short and fat and saying I would totally destroy him with fire and fury from my big and powerful nuclear button, I got him to negotiate". Trump's supporters on Capitol Hill are pushing the idea that he deserves a Nobel, and Trump clearly enjoyed it Saturday when supporters at a MI rally began chanting "Nobel" as he talked about North Korea.

Trump and North Korean chief Kim Jong Un are figuring out the small print of a historic summit that would happen by the top of Might or early June.

Denuclearizing North Korea would be a huge step toward peace, but many are wondering if Messer's reasons for nominating Trump are political. "The only thing we need is peace".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in only days ago suggested the US President should win the esteemed accolade for his efforts to resolve the Korean crisis.

It's a reference to President Reagan telling Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987 to tear down the Berlin Wall before their relationship warmed, easing tensions between the two countries.

A decade after Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, could his White House successor Donald Trump follow suit for navigating the thorny North Korean nuclear standoff?

Trump is also expected to meet with Kim sometime this month or next month to discuss that process, although the terms of the summit have yet to be announced.

The Nobel committee operates under aegis of the government of Norway, but a 2009 justice department memo says the prize and accompanying $1.4m award does not qualify as a "emolument" from a foreign power, as the committee is independent from the government.

The very idea, put forward by a handful of Republican lawmakers in a Wednesday letter nominating the USA president for the esteemed award, is enough to make his American and worldwide detractors cringe. "I just want to get the job done", he said.

"Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region", Messer wrote in the letter. Trump himself was nominated for the award this year and last year ― but both of those nominations were forgeries and were referred to Norwegian police for investigation. Nominations can only be made by people who belong to a handful of categories, including members of a national legislation body, university professors and former winners of the prize - but there are no other restrictions.
