Two Norwegian lawmakers nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

They are convinced that the meeting with trump, Kim Jong-UN, has historical significance and will be a positive influence peace on the planet.

Mr Trump's nomination places him alongside other prominent nominees in the past, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, and former Cuban leader Fidel Castro.

Note that the deadline for applications for the award of the Nobel peace prize of 2018, expired on January 31.

"In this situation, Trump is obviously a man of peace".

Trump saluted back. "We get along very well, we had good chemistry", Trump said . Nevertheless, how the real world will work after the summit remains to be seen.

Former President Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen worldwide diplomacy and co-operation between peoples", although the decision was highly controversial. Nominations for the 2009 prize closed 12 days after Mr Obama was sworn into office.

In a letter to Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen, Bryant and six governors wrote that Trump'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", according to the Associated Press.

In contrast, say Mr Trump's supporters, Mr Obama's successor has made a historic breakthrough in Korea that could potentially put an end to what has always been regarded as one of the most intractable conflicts in the world.

Sky Bet is offering odds of the U.S. president winning the award this year at 8/1, while it puts the chances of him winning the prize alongside someone else at 5/4. Worldwide, the US leader tends the highest, with the North Korean leader following. The meeting came after a relatively diplomatic year for North Korea. This year, it was nominated for a record number of 330 people.
