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.”
 
“We are seeing unprecedented progress toward peace, and it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership,” Messer said in a statement. “Following this historic announcement, President Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize. Our peace through strength strategy is delivering never before seen results.”
 
Moon and Kim met at the Panmunjom Truce Village in the Demilitarized Zone, and the two were seen talking and smiling.
 
Kim is also expected to meet with Trump for a historic summit in either May or June.
 
Like Messer, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C, said the president should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize if the two Koreas formally agree to denuclearize.
 
“It wouldn’t have happened without Trump,” Graham told Fox News. “What happened? Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China he was serious about bringing change. We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
