Norwegian lawmakers nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

GETTY    
     TRIUMPHANT Trump hailed his'special bond with Kim after their summit

The US President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula. Metro newspaper reported that certain bookmakers are already accepting 2\1 bets in favor of the option that the US President will receive it alone or in a group (for example with Kim Jong-un).

At the same time, other Twitter users have expressed their discontent with the prospect of Trump and Kim Jong-un getting the Nobel Peace Prize.

The deadline for this year's prize passed in January, so this nomination would make him eligible for next year. Those efforts materialized on Tuesday in a historic face-to-face meeting with Kim.

But while a Nobel award would cause consternation among Trump's critics, he also has some high-profile supporters.

Asked afterward if he deserved the honor, Trump said: "Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it".

Politicians, academics, former peace laureates, directors of peace research institutes and current and former members of the Nobel Committee are among those who have the right to propose candidates.

The last American to win the prize was former President Barack Obama, who won in 2009. Jagland declined to comment on Trump's chances after the summit.

While the Norwegian Nobel committee is appointed by parliament, its decisions are independent.

Syse told Reuters that his writings as a political philosopher and commentator "should in no way be read as comments pertaining to the prize or to our process in what is a five-person committee". His headline: 'Trump is no Hitler'. The remaining two committee members appear not to have written publicly about Trump.
