President Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in facilitating peace on the Korean Peninsula, according to South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace,” Moon said on Monday, according to Reuters.
Other members of the South Korean government also credited Trump with bringing North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to the negotiating table.
“Clearly, credit goes to President Trump,” Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha told CNN in Seoul. “He’s been determined to come to grips with this from day one.”

Even some of Trump’s biggest critics, such as Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) acknowledged Trump’s influence on bringing North and South Korea together for peace talks.
“I think it’s more than fair to say that the combination of the president’s unpredictability and, indeed, his bellicosity had something to do with the North Koreans deciding to come to the table,” Schiff said on Sunday.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) also warned that liberals wouldn’t be able to cope with Trump winning a Nobel Peace Prize.
“President Trump, if he can lead us to ending the Korean War after 70 years and getting North Korea to give up their nuclear program in a verifiable way, deserves the Nobel Peace Prize and then some,” Graham told Fox host Maria Bartiromo on Sunday.
“I want to be there. It may be the first time the Nobel Peace Prize was given and there was mass casualties because I think a lot of liberals would kill themselves if they did that,” he said.
