South Korea’s executive Blue House confirmed on Monday that President Moon Jae-in said U.S. President Donald Trump “should win the Nobel Peace Prize” for his efforts in Korea. Moon was holding a meeting of his Cabinet on Monday when the conversation turned to a letter of congratulations written to Moon by Lee Hee-ho, the widow of former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, who died in 2009. During his presidency, Kim was awarded the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize to recognize “his work for democracy and human rights in South Korea and in East Asia in general, and for peace and reconciliation with North Korea in particular.” The crowning achievement of his work with North Korea was a summit meeting in the summer of 2000 with Kim Jong-il, father of current dictator Kim Jong-un.

When Trump threatened to destroy North Korea in his first speech to the United Nations and called Kim Jong-un “Rocket Man”, the usual suspects were appalled. Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallstrom, who was observed … [Read more...] about Delingpole: Donald Trump Must Turn Down the Nobel Peace Prize
