    President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian Lawmakers

    President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian Lawmakers | Fortune

    U.S. President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

    The U.S leader was nominated by two members of Norway’s governing Progress Party, according to state broadcaster NRK. The deadline for this year’s prize passed in January, so this nomination would make him eligible for next year. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year’s prize.


    =================================================

    Well, it came from direct from Norway who smartly got in front of this train. This ought to be interesting.

    I am curious if others thing he should get the prize, and how his work compares to that of other recent recipients.
    Thanks from Bronwyn

    Nominations for the world’s most coveted prize are open to lawmakers, academics and researchers from around the world. The Nobel Committee in Oslo typically receives hundreds of nominations each year, and past candidates have also included Russian President Vladimir Putin and Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. A record 330 people were nominated this year

    While the Norwegian Nobel committee is appointed by parliament, it’s decisions are independent. Trump was nominated by two right-wing members of Norway’s Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and lower taxes.

    So I'm kind of thinking Trump will be a real "dark horse" here.

    Especially in light of the fact that got basically nothing from Kim at the Summit.

    This is gonna REALLY piss off some of our members.

    Don't they know an American president needs to send an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan to kill people to qualify?

    Like BHO did?

    He got it before the summit.

    • Destruction of the primary N. Korean test site.
    • Americans returned
    • Missile program scrapped (that we didn't even know about)
    • American remains from the war returned.
    • A moratorium on nuclear and missile testing in N. Korea


    You Leftists do realize that the talks were just the starting point? There is much more to come. It's a great start and we should all hope for success.

    The destruction of the primary test site was thanks to mother nature, not anyone's intervention.

    Why do you keep repeating these lies? How many times have you repeated this?
