Two Norwegian MPs called on President Trump to be awarded the Nobel peace prize after his summit, the Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un meeting with the North — the last push to Trump the prestigious award

The legislature, Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, both of the conservative Norwegian progress party, wrote a nomination letter and called for Trump to be given the award by the Norwegian Nobel Committee in support of the “historic” peace-process.

“What’s happening now is historic,” Amundsen told state broadcaster NRK. “A process is underway to ensure peace in the world in the future. It is a fragile process, but of course we must do what we can to help this process to bring good results. I think we can do that by sending a clear signal, by trump card-the Nobel peace prize.”

The nomination letter Trump compares ‘ s actions of President Theodore Roosevelt, the note you received the prize in 1906 for his efforts with Russia and Japan at the end of the Russo-Japanese war.

“Both President Roosevelt and President of the Trump show that the government leaders who are not afraid to show that they are ready, the power can be tools for peace,” the letter says.

Last month, a group of 18 Republican lawmakers, under your name, signed a letter nominating the trump card for the price. This letter said that Trump has worked “tirelessly maximum pressure on the North to apply Korea at the end of the illegal weapons programs, and peace to the region.”


“Although North Korea has moved, the calls of the international community to cease its acts of aggression for decades, President Trump’ s peace through strength policy and peace on the Korean Peninsula,” the Republican letter said. “We earned one of the Committee of the recognition in the year 2019, as President, Trump for his tireless work to bring peace in our world.”

Both the Norwegian and American letters of nomination are for the years 2019-price, as in the year 2018, the award period ended in February. According to the Nobel prize website, a nomination is considered valid if they are submitted by persons in certain categories-including “the members of the national parliaments and the national governments (Minister/Minister) of the sovereign States, as well as current heads of state and government.” There are 330 applicants for the 2018 prize is announced in October.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has also been called, allegedly, for Trump to be given the price.

In addition to Roosevelt, the US President, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter and Woodrow Wilson, were also honoured with the award. In 2007, the former Vice-President Al Gore received the award in addition to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) for their work on climate change.

While even Trump some concerns about whether the talks will ultimately be successful, said the Norwegian MPs has said that it is without precedent, to award a prize, if a process is still in progress.

“It wouldn’t be the first time you give the Nobel peace prize are involved to someone in a process. It has happened before,” Amundsen said, according to NRK.
