Say what now? Republicans nominate Donald Trump for Nobel peace prize

Say what now? Republicans nominate Donald Trump for Nobel peace prize

Donald Trump has been nominated by US House Republicans, who believe his threats of sanctions and war is the "only reason" why Pyongyang is reconciling with Seoul and moving towards denuclearization.

Three months ago, President Donald Trump used his first State of the Union address to chastise North Korea's Kim Jong Un as "depraved" and a "menace that threatens our world".

The idea of Trump winning the prize has human rights activists up in arms due to his extensive past with perpetrating discrimination, racism, sexism and xenophobia.

Recent sanctions by the United States administrations have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table, the Congressmen said in a letter to Berit Reiss-Andersen, Chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee. The final selection of a Nobel Peace Prize candidate would not be concluding as early as the beginning of May.

"The sanctions have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table", the nomination letter stated.

The victor will be named in October, however, President Trump's nomination is for the following year.

He said the European Union "sounds so nice" but it was "formed to take advantage of the United States".

This dash of reservation suggests the president knows his upcoming meeting with Kim and possibly Moon may not result in lasting peace.

Trump is set to hold a meeting with Kim to discuss North Korea's nuclear program in the near future, the location and date of which of not yet been announced.

Trump "had also ratcheted up tensions with North Korea", according to HuffPost.

Messer's letter cited Trump's efforts to unite the global community, including China, in imposing harsh economic sanctions against North Korea to pressure it to cease long-range missile and nuclear testing. It was in response to NFL players and teams kneeling during the national anthem.

Mr Kim made the comment during Friday's summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the spokesman added.

Trump's plans for military parade evocative of patriotic history, not North KoreaThe great parade debate of 2018 has begun.

Mr Trump was speaking in Washington, Michigan while the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner was taking place in Washington, DC. Trump's blustery tactics deserve recognition.

The very idea, put forward by a handful of Republican lawmakers in a Wednesday letter nominating the USA president for the esteemed award, is enough to make his American and worldwide detractors cringe.

If Trump were to win the Nobel Peace Prize, he would follow in the footsteps of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama.
