Under President Trump, the North Korean dictator is on the brink of ending nuclear tensions which have existed for decades. North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is meeting with South Korean President and other officials, announcing he wants to permanently end the warring between the two Korean countries (which technically is only suspended with a truce). He is looking to pack up his nuclear program and completely denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.
Is that Nobel Peace Prize worthy? You would think so.
As Washington Examiner reports, Republican Senator Lindsay Graham is joining a group of lawmakers calling for Trump to receive the award – something which would certainly put a ding into former President Obama’s legacy.
Check it out:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Friday that President Trump should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize if North and South Korea formally agree to denuclearize and bring peace to the Korean Peninsula.
“It wouldn’t have happened without Trump,” Graham said on Fox News.
“What happened? Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China he was serious about bringing about change,” he said. “We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
Graham said Trump was a critical factor in the equation, since he was able to convince North Korea that “we will take you down if you keep trying to build missiles to hit the American homeland.”
“And I think they convinced North Korea and China that Trump is serious,” he said.
Here are some more people calling for Trump to receive the award:

Gov. Mike Huckabee –
Signed peace agreement by NOKO and S. Korea-stunning, historic, & gives hope for the region. Can even his craziest critics acknowledge that @realDonaldTrump is largely responsible? Will he get a Nobel Peace Prize? Maybe at least Elizabeth Warren can give him a peace pipe.

When will we see the headline: “Trump Ends the Korean War”? Unlike Obama, he actually deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. @realDonaldTrump

Donald Trump Jr. –
Best short ever! Remember who decides this stuff. Noting to do with merit as we have all seen. The globalist elite would never give him that win.

Obama’s policies created ISIS, did nothing to stop N. Korea from getting nukes, allowed Putin to do whatever he wanted, & never stood up to Assad
Trump has obliterated ISIS, ending the Korean war, stood up to Putin (and won), and punished Assad
Give Trump the Nobel Peace Prize

Republican Rep. Luke Messer (per Washington Examiner) –
Republican Rep. Luke Messer of Indiana is gathering support from his colleagues in Congress to formally nominate President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize following the historic summit between North and South Korea.
“We are seeing unprecedented progress toward peace, and it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership,” Messer said in a statement. “Following this historic announcement, President Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Our peace through strength strategy is delivering never before seen results.”
Remind me why Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize and opine as to why Trump won’t🙄
Obama previously received a Nobel Peace Prize award after winning the 2008 presidential election:
The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2009 is to be awarded to President Barack Obama for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples. The Committee has attached special importance to Obama’s vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons.
Obama has as President created a new climate in international politics. Multilateral diplomacy has regained a central position, with emphasis on the role that the United Nations and other international institutions can play. Dialogue and negotiations are preferred as instruments for resolving even the most difficult international conflicts. The vision of a world free from nuclear arms has powerfully stimulated disarmament and arms control negotiations. Thanks to Obama’s initiative, the USA is now playing a more constructive role in meeting the great climatic challenges the world is confronting. Democracy and human rights are to be strengthened.
The move surprised many as the former president was in office less than a year, even Nobel secretary Geir Lundestad said he regretted giving Obama the peace prize.
Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.
Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.
Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.
Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.
“No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama,” Mr Lundestad writes.
“Even many of Obama’s supporters believed that the prize was a mistake,” he says. “In that sense the committee didn’t achieve what it had hoped for”.

Trump wouldn’t win a Nobel Prize if he discovered the secret to eternal life. The Nobel Peace Prize officially became a comedy gag in 2009. https://t.co/gcbb3faYL8
