Trump Receives Nobel Peace Prize Nomination

A group of Republican lawmakers has nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring North Korea to the negotiating table - a stunning turnaround from past year, when Washington and Pyongyang found themselves locked in a bitter war of words and threats that some feared could lead to nuclear war.

At the same time, other Twitter users have expressed their discontent with the prospect of Trump and Kim Jong-un getting the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee said earlier this year that it had received 329 nominations for the 2018 award, the second-highest number to date. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year's prize.

The men, both members of the populist Progress Party, told Norwegian news agency NTB that Trump "had taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea".

Trump was nominated by two right-wing members of Norway's Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and lower taxes.

Now that the Trump-Kim summit has come to a successful end, people have started guessing whether this breakthrough in relations between the USA and DPRK will bring its leaders the Nobel Peace Prize.

Trump himself has mused about earning the Nobel saying "everyone thinks so, but I would never say it", when asked about the possibility of the prize last month.

Trump declared on Wednesday that "there is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

Kim backed off in response to Trump's multiple demonstrations of USA military power and resolve, and his toughening of economic sanctions against North Korea.

Former President Barack Obama earned the prize, as did Jimmy Carter, Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.

Trump has been cited as a possible nominee since Kim ended a series of provocative threats and missile tests past year. The global community ratcheted up economic sanctions at the time as North Korea launched several intercontinental ballistic missiles and tested their most powerful nuclear weapon. In return, Trump promised to end "war games", or joint military exercises, with South Korea.
