Nobel Peace Prize for Trump?

Yes, Trump deserves a Nobel Prize – once he actually seals peace with North Korea

Boris Johnson to meet Donald Trump to try and save Iran nuclear deal

When asked if something could scuttle his upcoming summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Trump said, according to Mediaite, that "Everything can be scuttled".

"Everyone thinks so, but I will never say it", Trump said when asked by reporters if he thought he deserved recognition from the Nobel committee. "I believe the authority of the Peace Prize is so strong, that exactly because you are awarded the Peace Prize, you will always be under public scrutiny and have to answer to the public for your actions".

The US president added the one and the only reward he really wants "is victory for the world".

At the same time, trump said that the new agreement with Iran would be developed on a "solid Foundation". Nobel prizes are usually announced in October but awarded annually on December 10, the anniversary of death of Alfred Nobel, who gives his name to the awards. Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are all Nobel winners. Clearly enjoying the response, the President smiled and said, "Thank you, that is very nice". "Plus it could be hugely controversial if President Trump would find the Nobel Peace Prize due to other coverages, other actionsalong with other announcements".

North Korea on Sunday criticized what it called "misleading" claims that President Trump's policy of maximum political pressure and sanctions are what drove Pyongyang to the negotiating table. The prize I want is victory for the world. "Lot of things can happen. lot of good things can happen, lot of bad things can happen".

Among the many elements that needed fixing, Mr Johnson conceded, was the "sunset clause" that means "after 2025, the current deal allows Iran to go forward fast with enrichment programmes which could lead to a nuclear weapon, and no sanctions go back on". "A lot of good things can happen".
