By Conservative Tribune. . .As amazing news from the Korean peninsula continues to break, it looks increasingly possible that the decades-long hostilities between North and South Korea may finally be resolved in a peaceful manner … and Donald Trump played a major role in the process . . .
“We, the undersigned members of the United States Congress, respectfully nominate President Donald J. Trump to receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and bring peace to the region,” states a letter signed by 18 lawmakers.
“Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons program and bring peace to the region,” the official nomination letter continues.
“His Administration successfully united the international community, including China, to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history.”
Almost nobody predicted that talks in Korea would move as fast as they did, and events have moved so quickly that there is still some doubt about whether or not North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is actually serious about keeping his word. (Read more from “Trump Gets Massive Nobel Prize News” HERE)
House Republicans Nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize
By The Guardian. Eighteen House Republicans have nominated Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel peace prize.
In a letter spearheaded by the Indiana Republican Luke Messer and sent to the Norwegian Nobel committee, the lawmakers claim that Trump should “receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula and bring peace to the region”.
The rules for a Nobel prize nomination are relatively loose. Nominations can only be made by people who belong to a handful of categories, including members of a national legislation body, university professors and former winners of the prize – but there are no other restrictions. In 2018, there were 330 nominees to win the award, which will be announced in December. The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons was the 2017 winner.
The Nobel committee operates under aegis of the government of Norway, but a 2009 justice department memo says the prize and accompanying $1.4m award does not qualify as a “emolument” from a foreign power, as the committee is independent from the government. Trump has previously faced criticism over foreign government spending at his hotels, which scholars have argued is an emolument. The Trump Organization has said that it has given all profits from foreign governments to the US treasury. (Read more from “House Republicans Nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize” HERE)
