Skip to comments.Nobel Peace Prize for President Trump?
Posted on 04/21/2018 8:14:39 AM PDT by Kaslin
The North Korean state media made a historic announcement Friday evening that Kim Jong-un and the Democratic People's Republic of North Korea would be suspending its nuclear missile and long range missile testing. In addition they will also be closing down their nuclear test site. The announcement comes ahead of President Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-un, a potbellied dictator he once nicknamed "Rocketman," in May. By all accounts, President Trump has been the driving force behind North Korea's sudden change in their willingness to stop their nuclear weapon program.
Now, Rep. Luke Messer (R-IL) is calling for President Trump to be awarded the Nobel Peace prize if North Korea decides to disarm all together.
If North Korea disarms, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, Messer said in a statement released Saturday morning.
President Trumps peace through strength strategy is making America safer and delivering results. This is more progress in North Korea than we saw during the entire Obama administration, and its a direct result of President Trumps strong leadership on the world stage, he added.
In 2009, President Obama won the Nobel Peace prize for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples."
Evidence abounds that adulation for President Obama was premature. But, over on Sky News, Cordelia Lynch is asking if North Korea is a "a chance for Trump to become one of history's 'great men'?"
From Sky News:
"Each administration has tried to get to this place and North Korea has reneged.
Has Mr Trump managed to achieve what his predecessors couldn't and in the process, secure a unlikely place in the diplomatic hall of fame? It is too early to tell of course.
But, the fact his top spymaster, Mike Pompeo, secretly managed to meet face-to-face with Mr Kim does seem to have helped pave the way for something potentially monumental.
It seems Nigel Farage, the Brexit leader, would agree with Rep. Messer and Lynch's recognition of this historic occasion.
"Those who disagree with me, Im going to really upset you now. A few years ago President Obama, he was not even 10-months into the presidency and guess what? He got the Nobel Peace Prize for what he might do, Farage told LBC.
Im going to suggest now that what needs to happen is that President Trump needs to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for managing to get talks going with North Korea. I think its fantastic, and Ive been looking today at some of the rules and as an MEP I am able to nominate people for the Nobel Peace Prize," he added. And Ill be trying to get a petition of MEPs who support this idea."
A lot can change between now and the United States meeting with North Korea in May, but there is plenty to be cautiously optimistic about for President Trump.
He should either say thanks, but no thanks, or accept it and start referring it to the Peace through Strength Prize. After all, of Obama got it, it’s meaningless the way it is.
I hope Trump isn’t worried about that....
“There’s no limit to what you can accomplish when you don’t worry about who gets the credit.” - Ronald Reagan
Will they give it to him is another question.
Nobel Peace Prize is so far to the left, they’re practically gone to infinity on the left side of the spectrum.
They will ignore President Trump.
Only the Left , Criminals and Terrorists get the Nobel Peace Prize ,so Kim will get one and not Trump ,LOL
When hell freezes over. But even more entertaining than hell freezing over would be the Democrats reaction.
So you trust the word of fat boy Kim?
I’d say it’s a little early for celebrating...
Agreed. The NBP is nothing but a useless liberal trinket. The only benefit I could see in President Trump getting the peace prize is that it would piss off liberals to no end.
Yeah. Not going to happen.
I agree, completely.
It is far too early, to start celebrating yet.
What is being said is encouraging.
But thus far, it is basically just talk. Good so far.
But it is far, far too early.
> Nobel Peace Prize is so far to the left, theyre practically gone to infinity on the left side of the spectrum. <
Yep. If the Korea summit is successful, they’ll give a Nobel Peace Prize to Kim Jong-un. And Dennis Rodman might get one too. But Trump? No way.
Not only no, but hell no. With the parade of dirtbags that have gotten this award, you don’t want to be anywhere near it.
It is no longer an honor. It is a joke. What with Gore, Carter and Obama getting it, he should refuse being lumped into that Menagerie.
...if anybody gets a Nobel Peace Prize, you just know it will be Kim Jong-un.
They’d rather choke than give it to President Trump.
