18 Members Of Congress Sign Letter Encouraging President Trump Nobel Peace Prize

Share this:

In response to the recent denuclearization and peace overtures of Communist North Korea, 18 Republican members of Congress have sent a letter to the Norweigan Nobel Committee to nominate President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize “in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region.”

Last week, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, in South Korea, and the two agreed to remove all nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula and, in pending talks with the United States, bring an end to the Korean War, which has been in a stalemate since 1953.

After that meeting, South Korean President Moon said, “President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize.”

In the letter to the chairman and members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, the U.S. congressmen state,

“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.

“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. His Administration successfully united the international community, including China, to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history. The sanctions have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table.

“On April 20, 2018, North Korea announced it will end its nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missile testing programs. On April 27, 2018, North Korea and South Korea announced that they will work toward ending the Korean War, seek to reunify their countries, and that they will begin a process to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. President Moon Jae-in of South Korea has consistently praised the Administration’s work and recently said, ‘President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize.’

“Although North Korea has evaded demands from the international community to cease its aggressions for decades, President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula. We can think of no one more deserving of the Committee’s recognition in 2019 than President Trump for his tireless work to bring peace to our world.”
