SEOUL — The President of South Korea is rooting for Trump to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for helping bridge the North-South divide, and no — he's not joking.
According to Business Insider, with the two Koreas now talking peace and denuclearization, President Moon Jae-In says big credit is owed to ole Donald, the same peace-loving fella who threatened North Korea with nuclear annihilation just a year ago.
Sure, the Trump administration has been hurling sanctions and insult tweets left and right, and breathing down both the North's and China's necks. But it's hard to say how much of that is actually responsible for Kim Jong-Un's renewed interest in peace — if he's even truly interested."
Seeing Trump and Nobel Peace Prize in the same sentence is mind-boggling enough, but it isn't even the worst part.
CNN reports that former South Korean President Kim Dae-Jung won the prize in 2000 for setting up a summit with the North. His widow wished the same to Moon, who then went on to endorse Trump.
So the possibility of Trump being awarded a Peace prize? It's pretty real.
