Say what now? Republicans nominate Donald Trump for Nobel peace prize

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari and President Donald Trump

18 senior politicians from his Republican Party have written to the Nobel Committee to recommended him for the 2019 gong his work in easing tensions with North Korea.

The letter also says.

All comes after the President and the North Korean leader traded insults last fall as North Korea was testing rockets capable of carrying nuclear warheads. The lawmakers who signed the letter are among the most conservative in the House.

As claims and counter claims swirl around President Donald Trump and a porn star, several Tennessee Republicans running for office are touting him for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The letter said that North Korea has long ignored worldwide demands to cease its aggressions but that Trump's "peace through strength policies are working" and bringing North Korea to the negotiating table. Those on the five-person committee are able to add additional names to the list after the nomination is closed, but that meeting had already happened by the time people began to call for Trump to receive the prize.

The Saturday before, supporters at a MI rally chanted "Nobel, Nobel, Nobel" to a smiling Trump.

Furthermore, North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, stated that they would only get rid of their nuclear weapons if the safety of the country could be given.

We'll see if Messer and Trump win or lose their respective races. The final selection of a Nobel Peace Prize candidate would not be concluding as early as the beginning of May.

President Moon has also commended Trump's work on the issue, saying recently that he deserves the prestigious award.

In Washington's fevered political climate - in which "it's virtually impossible for one party to give credit to the other" - Trump's personality and "inability to think about the "we" rather than just the "me" is further reinforcing the antagonism, Miller said.

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.

Should he win the award, Trump will be the fifth American president bestowed with the honor after former Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.
