WASHINGTON, D.C. (Wednesday, May 2, 2018) — U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) today sent a letter to the Nobel Prize Committee formally nominating President Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, which Messer has been calling for since March.

Messer announced plans to nominate Trump last week after North and South Korea agreed to end the 65-year-old war between the two countries and work toward a nuclear-free Korean peninsula.

Messer’s nomination letter, which 17 of Messer’s fellow House members signed, cites President Trump’s tireless work and strong leadership for the historic progress made with North Korea.

“President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula,” Messer’s letter reads. “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.”

Members of Congress are permitted to submit nominations for the award to the Norwegian Nobel Committee that is responsible for selecting Nobel Peace Prize Laureates.

“I’m proud to nominate President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize,” Messer said. “The President’s strong leadership is the only reason North Korea is now coming to the table and he deserves recognition for this unprecedented progress toward peace."

Messer first suggested President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize if North Korea disarms its nuclear weapons program in early March, after the historic meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong-un, which will take place in the coming days, was first announced. South Korea’s President Moon recently echoed Messer’s calls for Trump to receive the Peace Prize. 

“This is more progress in North Korea than we saw during the entire Obama administration, Messer said. “And it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership on the world stage.”
