President Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian politicians



Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by two Norwegian politicians after his historic meeting with Kim Jong Un.
 
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, an MP, and former justice minister Per-Willy Amundsen said Mr Trump "had taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea".


Both men are politicians with the anti-establishment Progress Party.


A group of US Republican politicians nominated Mr Trump for the prize in May.


The process of considering candidates for the honour is carried out in Norway, and nominations must be sent to the Nobel committee before February.


Mr Trump's recent backing from Norwegian and US politicians therefore serve as nominations for the 2019 prize.


Each year the winner is announced on the Friday of the first full week of October.
