President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize Again

Two Norwegian lawmakers representing the populist party in the country's legislature have nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after his summit with North Korean leader 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.

Nominations must be sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee before February 1. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year's prize.

Amundsen nominated Trump along with his fellow Progress Party colleague Christian Tybring-Gjedde.

The two lawmakers called Trump's actions regarding North Korea "historic", with the potential "to ensure world peace in the future" in statements to Norwegian state broadcaster NRK.

A few suggested a less "mainstream" option for the next Nobel Prize victor, recalling Dennis Rodman's efforts in establishing the dialogue between the U.S. and North Korea.

Just boxing again was an achievement for Fury, whose life span out of control after ending Klitschko's nine-and-half year reign. Fury was given a backdated two-year doping ban, and he declared his boxing career finished as he piled on the pounds.

Trump declared on Wednesday that "there is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said in April that Trump deserved the prize.

Trump sat down with Kim on Tuesday for the first meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader in history.

The meeting in Singapore culminated with the two leaders signing an agreement that commits the U.S.to offering unspecified "security guarantees" for North Korea in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The last American to win the prize was former President Barack Obama, who won in 2009. In return, Trump promised to end "war games", or joint military exercises, with South Korea.

Trump has been cited as a possible nominee since Kim ended a series of provocative threats and missile tests previous year.
