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.

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.
Trump, Xi, Moon and Kim together get my vote for the Nobel Peace Prize.

PEACE IN KOREA: Kim Agrees to GIVE UP Nukes if US PLEDGES 'No Invasion'
North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un suggested over the weekend his willingness to not only “cease” his nuclear program, but to completely hand over his weapons should the US pledge never to preemptively “invade” the Hermit Kingdom.
The continued thawing of relations between the US, North, and South Korea continued Sunday, with the brutal despot agreeing to cede his weapons to external authorities if Trump agrees to halt any future attacks on the communist nation.
According to the New York Times, Kim’s concession comes as the dictator agreed to allow both US and South Korean nuclear experts into his country to examine his facilities and testing sites.
The possible two-year denuclearization agreement would need “full, complete, total disclosure of everything related to their nuclear program with a full international verification,” said John Bolton, the President’s National Security Adviser.
“I know the Americans are inherently disposed against us, but when they talk with us, they will see that I am not the kind of person who would shoot nuclear weapons to the south, over the Pacific or at the United States,” the North Korean ruler told the South Korean President this week.
