South Korean President Moon Jae-in says there is no question that President Donald Trump deserves to win the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in ending the longstanding war between North and South Korea and promoting denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize,” Moon reportedly said. “What we need is only peace.”
President Trump has remained extremely active on the issue during the talks between President Moon and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.
“Just had a long and very good talk with President Moon of South Korea. Things are going very well, time and location of meeting with North Korea is being set,” the president tweeted over the weekend. “Also spoke to Prime Minister Abe of Japan to inform him of the ongoing negotiations.

On Monday, Trump revealed several countries are being considered for his historic meeting with Kim Jong-un, but he also asked his followers if he should meet him at the same location where the two nations held talks at the Peace House in Panmunjom.
Numerous countries are being considered for the MEETING, but would Peace House/Freedom House, on the Border of North & South Korea, be a more Representative, Important and Lasting site than a third party country? Just asking!

Fox News has more details:
The Korean leaders announced Friday they would work to achieve a “nuclear-free Korean Peninsula,” and also expressed hope to officially end the 1950-53 Korean War by the end of the year, though it is not clear at this point.
Trump called the summit between the two leaders a “historic meeting,” and touted the outcome, noting that the people of the United States “should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea.”
The leaders also agreed that beginning May 1, all loudspeaker propaganda broadcasts that have been blaring from each side of the heavily-armed borer will be suspended. They also agreed to dismantle broadcasting equipment and stop flying propaganda leaflets across their border.
If the deal actually happens, it would be one of the most historic events for a U.S. president in American history.
Do you agree with President Moon? Does President Trump deserve a Nobel Peace Prize?
