Donald Trump Nominated For The 2019 Nobel Peace Prize
Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his work easing nuclear tensions with North Korea.
The letter, sent by Rep. Luke Messer, R-Ind. to the Norwegian Nobel Committee on Tuesday, and signed by 17 other members, says Trump has worked “tirelessly to apply maximum pressure to 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 letter also says. “The sanctions have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table.”
The other lawmakers who signed the letter include: Reps Mark Meadows, R-N.C., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Diane Black, R-Tenn., and Steve King, R-Iowa.
“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,” the letter says.
“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.”
It emerged just days after Naija News reported Kim’s unprecedented meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in which they vowed to rid the peninsula of nuclear weapons.
They also agreed to cooperate on ending the Korean War, 65 years after the armistice. Trump’s supporters on Capitol Hill suggest he is largely responsible for these advancements in peace talks. On Saturday night, Republicans chanted “Nobel” as Trump talked about North Korea at a Michigan rally.Copyright Naija News 2018. All rights reserved.
