Two Norwegian MPs are calling for President Trump to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un -- the latest push for Trump to be given the prestigious prize
Lawmakers Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, both of the conservative Norwegian Progress Party, wrote a nominating letter calling for Trump to be given the award by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to support the “historic” peace process.
“Both President Roosevelt and President Trump show that government leaders who are not afraid to show that they are willing to use power can be tools for peace,” the letter says.
“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 Republican letter said.
“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.”
