Trump Formally Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

According to CNN, if Trump were to win the award, he would be the fifth American president to do so.

Former President Barack Obama is among the recipients of the award; winning in 2009. The Prize Committee has not announce the nominees.

"The globalist elite would never give him that win", Donald Trump Jr tweeted on Friday. It's not because they're up reading the latest Council of Foreign Relations reports.

"I just want to get the job done", he proclaimed, after fondly pronouncing the word "Nobel". "As more than one commentator had put it, the Bush/Cheney administration had used diplomacy as a last resort".

"I think he should be considered, absolutely". "No-bel!" after his hardline against North Korea resulted in some of the most promising prospects for peace in years.

The White House has not yet responded to the letter or nomination. Rep. David McKinley, who represents the First Congressional district, also signed on to the letter. Much of the race has been about the candidates trying to prove how much they're like Trump.

The Nobel Committee accepts nominations for the year's prize until February 1, and most of the names submitted after that point are considered for the next calendar year. Trump's blustery tactics deserve recognition.

Jenkins asked Nobel Peace Prize Committee Chair Berit Reiss-Anderson and the Norwegian Nobel Committee to consider Trump for the prize.

Jae-in's endorsement of a Nobel for Trump, who has faced one ethical scandal after another at home, came as the South Korean leader presided over a meeting of his senior presidential staff on Monday.

Trump has achieved more "concrete progress than Obama had more generally for his Nobel", Blake wrote. "North Korea's pledged actions - including one to dismantle its nuclear test site in public view - are still just that".

Calls for the president to receive a Nobel peace prize have also been made by world leaders including Moon Jae-in, who said if anyone should receive the prize for efforts in North Korea, it should be Trump, The Washington Post reported. But that shouldn't be taken seriously either, Blake said.

Moon also always been a supporter of Trump's efforts to end the Korean crisis, stating Trump "deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks" and "it could be a resulting work of the US -led sanctions and pressure".
