Trump has done a great deal to promote worldwide peace

In a letter to the Nobel Committee, some of Trump's biggest supporters are urging the Committee to recognise 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 letter also says. "The sanctions have decimated the North Korean economy and have been largely credited for bringing North Korea to the negotiating table". The Congressman is in a tough re-election fight, and may have excluded one of his opponents from signing on to the letter praising Trump.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said this week Trump deserved the prize for his work to help end the nuclear standoff. He was awarded the prize eight months later for that and for his "New Beginning" speech in Cairo in 2009 because it was in front of Muslims in a Muslim country. This past weekend at a rally in MI, some of his supporters chanted "Nobel".

There's a strong precedent for giving the prize to leaders who have worked on nuclear disarmament or peace deals.

Furthermore, North Korean leader, Kim Jong-Un, stated that they would only get rid of their nuclear weapons if the safety of the country could be given.

Obama received the award despite being the only United States president to serve two complete terms with his country at war.

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".

"It's really President Trump who should receive it; we can just take peace", Moon said, according to his office.

"But thus far we have only handshakes, a hug and verbally expressed goals when it comes to peace between North and South Korea. It could be a resulting work of the USA -led sanctions and pressure".

Now, commentators and others in Seoul think Trump deserves a Nobel Prize for helping start the unexpected peace process unfolding on the divided Korean peninsula.

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.

So far, four US presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize, with the latest being Barack Obama in 2009. The letter gives several reasons why the president deserves the award.
