Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize. So did Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter. Is Donald Trump the next United States leader to win the Nobel Peace Prize?
Supporters Pushing Trump
Many of the President’s supporters are pushing Trump’s name as the next leader to win the title. This move is being met by eye rolls and smirks in Europe, where the President is still very unpopular. This is not stopping the supporters, however, from asking the Nobel committee to consider Donald Trump for his diplomatic victory.
Luke Messer, an Indiana Republican, said that he has been talking about this for months, applauding Trump’s success. He is only one of the 18 Republicans who wrote a letter to Norwegian Nobel Committee representative Berit Reiss-Andersen. The letter was sent last week with an intention to consider nominating Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize. The reasons mentioned for why he is the right candidate are his work to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, possibly ending the Korea Cold War, and making it a peaceful region.
