Trump should win Nobel Peace Prize, some Republicans declare

RT News - April 30, 2018 (12:00 MSK)

President Donald Trump, at a recent rally in Washington, Michigan was greeted by a crowd cheering "No-bel!"

Reportedly, in a letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committe, a group of Republican Lawmakers has recommended Trump for the prize.

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

The letter continued, "His Administration successfully united the worldwide community, including China, to impose one of the most successful global sanctions regimes in history".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said this week Trump deserved the prize for his work to help end the nuclear standoff.

In the letter, Messer and his Republican colleagues endorse Trump's nomination by arguing that he deserves the award because of his work to end the Korean War and bring peace to the peninsula.

Three days later in the Oval Office Trump returned to the topic, saying it was "very generous" of South Korea's President Moon Jae-in to suggest the U.S. leader - rather than himself - was deserving of the prestigious prize.

Trump has also been eager to take credit for Jong-un's shift in behaviour as the inter-Korean summit has fanned speculation that he could receive the Nobel Peace Prize. In the letter, they state that Trump worked "tirelessly to apply maximum pressure to North Korea to end its illicit weapons program and being peace to the region".

When Trump spoke about the breakthrough with North Korea during a rally in MI this weekend, the crowd began chanting, "Nobel, Nobel, Nobel".

According to Reuters, Moon said, "President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. That's why I think he has to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize".

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

The very idea, put forward by a handful of Republican lawmakers in a Wednesday letter nominating the United States president for the esteemed award, is enough to make his American and global detractors cringe.

The formal nomination comes on the heels of a statement from South Korean President Moon Jae-in that "Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize".

As well as Obama, three USA presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter.

The Nobel chatter also reflects an impassioned debate taking place over the exact role of America's president in the ongoing diplomatic overtures.
