By Amanda Terkel A group of 18 House Republicans has nominated President Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on North Korea. “Although North Korea has evaded demands from the international community to cease its aggression for decades, President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean peninsula,” write the lawmakers in their nomination letter. “We can think of no one more deserving of the Committee’s recognition in 2019 than President Trump for his tireless work to bring peace to our world.” Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.) is the leader of the effort, which he first proposed in March. Today, 17 of my House colleagues joined me in nominating @realDonaldTrump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. … [Read more...] about Donald Trump Nominated For The Nobel Peace Prize By House Republicans

Some talk of a Nobel award for Trump on North Korea.

He also threatened last year to “totally destroy” the North, said “Little Rocket Man” would be “tested like never before” and promised he would never call Kim “short and fat.” All of that makes the suggestion that Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize completely absurd. It has been floated repeatedly in recent days and was amplified on Monday after South Korean President Moon Jae-in responded to a message that he himself should get the prize by saying he felt Trump deserved … [Read more...] about There’s Virtually No Way Trump Could Win The Nobel Prize This Year For North Korea
