Earlier this week, Donald Trump made history when he brokered a peace deal with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Now Norwegian leaders just nominated Trump to be nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize because of this deal.
Independent Journal Review reported that Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, members of the Norwegian Progress Party, put in the nomination for Trump. The nomination was sent in one month after a group of 18 House Republicans wrote to the Norwegian Nobel Committee to request he be considered for the prize.
“Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region. His Administration successfully united the international community, including China, to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history,” the Republicans wrote. “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.”
Amundsen said that this would not be the first time that a Peace Prize was awarded to someone in the midst of a process.
“We will of course follow the development closely, but the fact that we have come this far is, in my opinion, worthy of a peace prize,” he said.
Tybring-Gjedde agreed with him.
“This is a nudge to make Donald Trump finish what he’s started,” Tybring Gjedde said.
We have to agree that Donald Trump has done far more to receive the Nobel Peace Prize this week than Barack Obama ever did during his presidency. Top Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway agreed that Trump deserves the prize far more than his predecessor did.
“Look, the last president was handed the Nobel Peace Prize. This president is actually going to earn it,” Conway said on Wednesday. “And that’s all we need to know from this. It’s his moxie.”
