Eighteen members of the House of Representatives officially nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize Wednesday; formally submitting the required paperwork to reward the President for his role in fostering peace on the Korean peninsula.
The GOP legislators -led by Rep. Luke Messer- sent the nomination to the Norwegian Nobel Committee this week, the organization behind the coveted international prize and outlined how Trump directly impacted North Korea’s recent announcement to suspend its nuclear and missile programs.
“Although North Korea has evaded demands from the international community to cease its aggressions for decades, President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula,” said the letter.
“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,” the lawmakers added.
Sen. Lindsey Graham was the first to call for Trump’s peace prize; saying if North Korea and South Korea formally end the 68-year-long Korean War the President should be at the top of the list.
