GOP Governors Urge Nobel Committee to Consider Trump

Troy R. Bennett | BDN  Donald Trump shakes hands with Maine Gov. Paul Le Page at a campaign rally in Portland

"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", their letter stated. On Monday, Israeli troops killed over 60 Palestinians, including an eight-month-old baby, and wounded more than 2,700 people as protestors attempted to cross the Gaza border at the same time United States and Israeli officials celebrated Trump's move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Maine Governor Paul LePage is joining a group of fellow governors who are backing President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

North and South Korea have exchanged overtures recently in an effort to ease tensions between the two nations split asunder following the 1953 armistice that ceased aggression between the two countries.

Bryant is one of several state leaders who have said Trump should be considered for the Nobel Prize.

"After almost two decades of gridlock and global anxiety surrounding North Korea's nuclear program, we are now, at last, on the precipice of peace".

"[Former President] Barack Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize only a few months after assuming office when he really had done nothing that merited any kind of recognition of that type".

Preston cautioned about overvaluing the Nobel Prize arguing that in the 70s "Henry Kissinger was given the Nobel Peace Prize even as the United Sates was waging a genocidal war in Southeast Asia".

"Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China he was serious about bringing about change", Graham said in a tweet.
