U.S. President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
The U.S leader was nominated by two members of Norway’s governing Progress Party, according to state broadcaster NRK.
The Nobel Committee in Oslo typically receives hundreds of nominations each year, and past candidates have also included Russian President Vladimir Putin and Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
Trump was nominated by two right-wing members of Norway’s Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and lower taxes.
“What’s going on now is historic,” Progress Party member Per-Willy Amundsen told NRK.
