GREAT AGAIN: Norwegian lawmakers nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

Norwegian state broadcaster NRK announced this week that President Trump is now officially in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize after his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday.

Norwegian lawmakers Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen of the country’s Progress Party – similar to the Republican Party in the U.S. – nominated the president this week for the 2019 prize.

The Norwegian politicians pointed to the recent summit as the reason for the nomination, according to a joint statement fed through Google translate.

“Through his untraditional style, President Trump has helped us see a breakthrough in relations with North Korea. The meeting in Singapore, June 12, 2018 between Trump and the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a preliminary highlight. In the joint statement, the two heads of state agreed that North Korea should work for total nuclear disarmament and that the countries should build a lasting and solid peace regime on the Korean peninsula,” they wrote.
