Has Trump bolstered his Nobel Peace Prize case?

Now that the President has a signed agreement with North Korea to denuclearize, there are more calls coming for him to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

And that's because what Trump has done has been something no other President has ever accomplished.

“The U.S. has made more progress with North Korea than any other administration,” KTRH’s Sean Hannity said on Fox News.

Political scientist Mark Jones at Rice University can understand why people feel way Hannity does.

“If Trump is able to get North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons then he would be deserving of the Nobel Prize,” Jones said, but also added the people in Sweden who decide the winner do not like the President.

\NNuclear disarmament lobbyist Anthony Wier, who has served under both Republican and Democratic Presidents in over twenty years in Washington, told KTRH other Nobel Prizes take years to get recognized for.

“I think that’s the same standard that should apply here,” Wier said. Maybe not years, but we can wait months to make that call.

That said, President Obama did win the Nobel Prize after just one year in office for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples"

Among the Texas Congressmen signing a letter nominating Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize include Pete Olson, Michael Burgess and Brian Babin.
