18 GOP House Reps Nominate Trump For Nobel Prize

ABC News reports:

Indiana Republican Congressman Luke Messer formally nominated President Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to get North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear weapons program.

Messer, who is seeking the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Indiana next week, was joined by 17 Republican House colleagues in submitting the letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, including five additional GOP members running for higher office in 2018.

“President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula,” Messer wrote in his letter, “We can think of no one more deserving of the Committee’s recognition in 2019 than President Trump for his tireless work to bring peace to our world.”
