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.

PEACE IN KOREA: Seven US Governors Back TRUMP for NOBEL PRIZE
Seven United States governors are throwing their full support behind President Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize this week; sending a letter to the Norwegian Committee that called for the Commander-in-Chief to receive the award in 2019.
Led by Governor McMaster of South Carolina, the letter praised the President’s push towards the full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula; saying his administration is clearing the path towards the end of the 68-year-long Korean War.
“We, the undersigned governors of the United States of America, support the nomination of President Donald J. Trump, by members of the United States Congress, to receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula after more than 60 years of conflict and division,” write the governors.
“The President’s firm stance against nuclearization, coupled with his willingness to engage one-on-one with Pyongyang, has succeeded in opening new avenues of cooperation, friendship and unity between the two Koreas – and the rest of the world,” the statement adds.
The letter was signed by the governors of South Carolina, Alabama, Kansas, Mississippi, Guam, Maine, and West Virginia.
