A pair of Norwegian lawmakers say President Donald Trump's recent efforts to work toward North Korean denuclearization are enough to warrant a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for the 2019 award.

In contrast, say Mr Trump's supporters, Mr Obama's successor has made a historic breakthrough in Korea that could potentially put an end to what has always been regarded as one of the most intractable conflicts in the world.

"I believe that we can achieve this by sending a clear signal, namely by giving Trump the Nobel peace prize", said one of the MPs.

Two of the United Kingdom's largest bookmakers have cut the odds on bets that President TrumpDonald John TrumpSanford at risk in primary shadowed by Trump McConnell cements his standing in GOP history Ready for somebody?

"Both President Roosevelt and President Trump show that government leaders who are not afraid to show that they are willing to use power can be tools for peace."
They added that their nomination for Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize would send a clear signal to the US and world to finish what was started.

Despite the fact that the Norwegian Nobel Committee is appointed by the Parliament, its decisions are independent.

In 2009, the Nobel Peace Prize award to newly-elected US President Barack Obama was widely criticized as premature. The meeting came after a relatively diplomatic year for North Korea.

The committee's secretary, Olav Njoelstad, said "it is not impossible" for someone who has been criticised by committee members to be considered, and even win, the prize. A record 330 people were nominated this year. The former has likened the hijab to a Nazi uniform and demanded stricter immigration controls.

Two lawmakers from Norway nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after the meeting.

"Currently under the process of peace".

Trump then said that "everyone thinks he deserves" the Nobel peace prize, but he wants another award - "victory for peace".
