Republican Rep. Luke Messer of Indiana is gathering support from his colleagues in Congress to formally nominate President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize following the historic summit between North and South Korea.
Messer’s push for support of a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump — which he has been advocating for since March — follows an announcement from South Korean President Moon Jae-in that he and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un committed to ending the 65-year-old Korean War and will sign a peace treaty.
A joint statement from North and South Korea said the two Koreas are committed to achieving a “nuclear-free Korean Peninsula through complete denuclearization.”

Our peace through strength strategy is delivering never before seen results.”
