Donald Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize, says South Korean President Moon Jae-in

South Korean President Moon Jae-in thinks US President Donald Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the standoff with North Korea over its nuclear weapons program, according to a South Korean official.

"President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize. What we need is only peace," Mr Moon told a meeting of senior secretaries, according to a presidential Blue House official who briefed media.

Mr Moon and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Friday pledged at a summit to end hostilities between their countries and work toward the "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula.

Mr Trump is preparing for his own summit with Mr Kim, which he said would take place in the next three to four weeks.

The Trump administration has led a global effort to impose stricter sanctions on North Korea, with the US president also exchanging bellicose threats with Mr Kim in the past year over North Korea's development of nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States.

In January, Mr Moon said Mr Trump "deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks. It could be a resulting work of the US-led sanctions and pressure".

Mr Trump's predecessor Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize just months into his presidency, an award many thought was premature, given that he had little to show for his peace efforts beyond rhetoric.

Even Mr Obama said he was surprised and by the time he collected the prize in Oslo at the end of that year, he had ordered the tripling of US troops in Afghanistan.

Mr Moon's Nobel Prize comment came in response to a congratulatory message from Lee Hee-ho, the widow of late South Korean president Kim Dae-jung, in which she said Mr Moon deserved to win the prize, the Blue House official said.

Mr Moon responded by saying Mr Trump should get it.

That would set the cat amongst the progressive pigeons! http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/wink.gif

He would certainly be as deserving as his predecessor.

Why not ? Adolf Hitler was nominated but had his nomination withdrawn. Anything is possible Charles. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

An odious and ridiculous comparison Bill.

As I said on another thread, Trump has achieved more in a bit over a year than Obama did in eight years. Obama was awarded the peace prize for what?

All I can think of is because he was the first Afro American POTUS. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

But what would a far right fascist like me know? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

The Nobel Peace Prize is a farce.

I agree Flin.

It is just another worthless and meaningless gong to hand out to so called VIP's.

Charles, I think Bill is comparing Trump to Hitler - just more of his 'click bait'. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

Why did Obama receive the Nobel Peace Prize?

Two months after he was awarded it he sent 30,000 additional troops to Afghanistan. Then there was 'Obama’s drone wars' - he was also known as 'Deporter-in-Chief', he deported more people from the US than any previous president. Obama supported NATO’s bombing of Libya, he also continued the operation of Guantanamo Bay, despite his 2008 pledge to close the facility.

Remember Shimon Peres?

Trump is not a bad choice considering past choices, he certainly cannot be compared to Hitler.

Kim Jong-Un changed his approach after he visited China, he took their advice - don't be fooled by what is happening in Korea, both China and Russia are behind the scenes.
