Trump deserves Nobel Peace Prize for North Korea work, Gaetz says

President Trump “The main thing I want to get is peace.”

He also threatened a year ago to "totally destroy" the North, said "Little Rocket Man" would be "tested like never before" and promised he would never call Kim "short and fat".

The Nobel Peace Prize, one of five Nobel awards generally given out annually for over 100 years, goes to whoever "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

Moon said earlier this week Trump deserved the Noble Peace Prize if an award is given out for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Moon and Kim pledged at a historic summit last week to end hostilities between their countries and work toward the "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula.

The economic punishments were aimed at North Korea's exports of textiles and coal as well as its shipping industry.

The Nobel Committee accepts nominations for the year's prize until February 1, and most of the names submitted after that point are considered for the next calendar year. He was awarded the prize eight months later for that and for his "New Beginning" speech in Cairo in 2009 because it was in front of Muslims in a Muslim country.

That hasn't stopped Trump or some of his supporters from taking up the idea with gusto.

There's a strong precedent for giving the prize to leaders who have worked on nuclear disarmament or peace deals.

"If there's one thing that defines Donald Trump's presidency, it may be his never-ending thirst for validation, applause and credit - even when getting it strains credulity", the Post's Aaron Blake wrote. "It was a big problem, and I think it's going to work out well".

Critics say Trump does not deserve the prize either, as he has so far stepped up unauthorized U.S. military interventions in Syria, Afghanistan and a number of African countries. "I want to get it done". This past weekend at a rally in MI, some of his supporters chanted "Nobel".

Peace in the Korean peninsula?

Awarding Trump with the prize could also rectify the controversial selection of President Barack Obama in 2009, as many USA conservatives see it. Obama had just taken office and had not made any significant achievements in foreign policy at the time.

Eighteen House members sent a letter to the Nobel Committee in Norway to formally nominate Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, and the mainstream media is still wrapping its mind around it.

Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are all Nobel winners.
