Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.) is trying to get his colleagues to nominate Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize. Messer wants to recognize Trump for his role in the peace talks between North and South Korea.




In a statement, Messer stated, “We are seeing unprecedented progress toward peace, and it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership.” 

The statement continues, “Following this historic announcement, President Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Our peace through strength strategy is delivering never before seen results.”

Messer isn’t the only Republican who believes Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.

On Friday, Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C) also stated that Trump deserves the award if he is able to successfully negotiate North Korean denuclearization.



This kind of talk comes as North and South Korean leaders signed a declaration vowing to work toward the “complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.”

There are only four U.S. presidents who have received the award, including former President Obama.

This report garnered some reactions:
