South Korean President Moon Jae-in has remarked President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula and bring an end to the war between North and South Korea.
KOREAN WAR TO END! The United States, and all of its GREAT people, should be very proud of what is now taking place in Korea!

According to Reuters President Moon Jae-in made the announcement following a congratulatory message from the widow of former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung where she said Moon should win a prize for his attempts at peace with North Korea. Instead Moon revealed it should be Trump who deserves the accolade.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize,” President Moon Jae-in remarked, according to a South Korean official. “What we need is only peace.”
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. Also spoke to Prime Minister Abe of Japan to inform him of the ongoing negotiations.

The remarks came just days after President Moon and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un held a historic meeting at the Peace House in Panmunjom and announced last Friday they would work together to achieve a “nuclear free Korean peninsula.”
