Eighteen GOP members of Congress have officially nominated President Donald Trump for bringing an end to the 65-year Korean War and for his efforts towards denuclearizing North Korea with talks between President Trump and NK President Kim Jong-un to take place in late May or early June in the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea.
Several presidents have tried both but President Trump is the one who succeeded. They have already sent their letter of nomination to the Nobel Committee. If he were a liberal, he’d be a shoo-in but he is a Republican, so not so much.
Like Obama, Trump could win the Nobel Peace Prize but unlike Obama, he will have actually earned his.
“We, the undersigned members of the United States Congress, respectfully nominate President Donald J. Trump to receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and bring peace to the region,” the letter states.
The letter went on to say that “Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons program and bring peace to the region.”
“We are seeing unprecedented progress toward peace, and it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership.” Messer said in a statement last week. “Following this historic announcement, President Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Our peace through strength strategy is delivering never before seen results.”
South Korea’s foreign minister has credited President Trump for bringing the two sides together, saying “Clearly, credit goes to President Trump…He’s been determined to come to grips with this from day one.”
