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.
HELL FREEZES OVER: Even Liberals Call for Trump NOBEL PRIZE Over Korea
Some members of the mainstream media took a brief hiatus from their non-stop bashing of President Trump Friday, with some going so far as to say the Commander-in-Chief deserves the Nobel Prize over his handling of North Korea’s nuclear program.
Sen. Lindsey Graham -a vocal critic of President Trump- was the first to suggest the award, saying “It’s the biggest change since the end of the hostilities.”
“We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize,” he added.
A prominent reporter for NBC News also mentioned the prize, writing “It is a dangerous world, dominated by outsized personalities who act aggressively on behalf of their nations, including not hesitating to threaten — and even engage in — war. Fortunately, one is President Donald Trump.
“History — and in particular, the American voter — has a way of calling forth the right person to lead at the right time,” said NBC’s Keith Koffler. “Americans can feel assured that they have chosen the right man for the moment.”
“Trump’s big, bad personality is just right for this dangerous world,” he added.

SOUTH KOREAN PRESIDENT: ‘Give Donald Trump NOBEL PRIZE’
South Korean President Moon Jae-in threw his support behind President Donald Trump Monday; declaring the Commander-in-Chief should receive the Nobel Prize for his efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula.
Moon made the announcement while speaking with senior officials this week following his high-stakes talks with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un; a historic meeting where both leaders pledged to completely denuclearize the region.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace,” he told government ministers.
His endorsement comes just weeks before President Trump is set to meet Kim, the first face-to-face negotiations between the leaders of the United States and North Korea in history.
“Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!” tweeted the President Monday.
