LePage, 6 other governors sign letter backing Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

LePage, 6 other governors sign letter backing Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

Colyer and six other governors signed a letter Monday urging the Norwegian Nobel Committee to choose Trump.

It credited Trump's "firm stance" and "willingness to engage one-on-one with Pyongyang" for opening "new avenues" of "cooperation, friendship, and unity" between North and South Korea and the rest of the world. On Monday, Israeli troops killed over 60 Palestinians, including an eight-month-old baby, and wounded more than 2,700 people as protestors attempted to cross the Gaza border at the same time United States and Israeli officials celebrated Trump's move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

On Wednesday's episode of "The Opposition", Jordan Klepper basically begged the Nobel Committee to give Donald Trump a Nobel Peace Prize, even if talks in Korea appear to have stalled. He has facilitated face-to-face meetings with South Korea and North Korea that are leading to the long-desired peace brokering between the two countries.

The governors' letter came amid reports from South Korea's Yonhap News Agency that North Korea was canceling a high-level meeting planned between the two countries due to the ongoing military exercises between the United States and South Korea. Trump is the only new variable in the situation, they wrote, adding that "there is no one more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize".

Participation prize or no, President Obama certainly knew that the award he was about to receive was a medal, Jesse, not a trophy.

U.S. President Donald Trump does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize because his foreign policy is creating tensions in the Middle East, an American journalist says. President Barack Obama received the prize in 2009, a move that generated controversy at the time.
