"ISIS is on the run and I think the world is waking up to the fact that there's a new sheriff in town and the world's most important leader today is Donald Trump".

In a move to acknowledge the work President Donald Trump has done to secure peace on the Korean Peninsula, 18 Republican lawmakers have nominated him for a Nobel Peace Prize, according to Fox News.

A decade after Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, could his White House successor Donald Trump follow suit for navigating the thorny North Korean nuclear standoff?

The letter sent to the Nobel committee said North Korea has long ignored global demands to cease its aggressions, but Trump's "peace through strength policies are working" and bringing North Korea to the negotiating table.

It said the Trump administration united China and others in imposing strict sanctions.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, said on Monday that the US President "can take the Nobel prize" as long as the Koreas receive peace in return, just months after Trump threatened North Korea with total destruction. This endorsement letter has also been signed by another seventeen House Republicans for Trumps's "tireless work to bring peace to our world".

The letter said that North Korea has long ignored global demands to cease its aggressions but that Trump's "peace through strength policies are working" and bringing North Korea to the negotiating table. That's very nice", a smiling Trump said on Saturday as supporters at a campaign-style rally in MI chanted "No-bel!




Congressman Luke Messer (R-Ind.) on why he nominated President Trump for the 2019 Noble Peace Prize. On Monday, South Korea's president, Moon Jae-in, said he felt the same.

Last week, Kim Jong Un became the first North Korean leader to visit the South since the Korean War.

Cramer signed a letter that noted North Korea has announced it will suspend its nuclear and missile tests.

In 2009, when former President Barack Obama had been in office for less than one year, he got the peace prize "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen global diplomacy and cooperation between peoples".

No matter what the likelihood is for Trump's getting a Nobel, his public image among South Koreans has been improving markedly as the mood on the Korean peninsula shifts from fears of war to hopes of peace.

Beyond Obama, three other USA presidents have received the award: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter. Former Vice President Al Gore also received the award.
