Jae-in's endorsement of a Nobel for Trump, who has faced one ethical scandal after another at home, came as the South Korean leader presided over a meeting of his senior presidential staff on Monday.

Trump should "receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula and bring peace to the region", the nomination letter, addressed to the Norwegian Nobel committee by Indiana Republican Luke Messer, recommended.

The Republican lawmakers have written in their letter that it is Trump's "peace through strength policies" that are bringing peace to the Korean peninsula and that his "tireless work" towards peace in this world deserves recognition.

"Although North Korea has evaded demands from the worldwide community to cease its aggression for decades, President Trump's peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean peninsula".

It said the Trump administration united China and others in imposing strict sanctions.

Several months ago, South Koreans considered President Donald Trump as unsafe as North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, as the two traded threats of nuclear annihilation.

The two neighbors began mending fences in January, when North Korean leader Kim Jung-un said he would be interested in talks between officials from the two countries. The time and place of the critical summit will be announced soon.

"President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize".

Early this week, Trump told reporters that he is focused on achieving peace in the region.

Kim and President Moon Jae-in of South Korea held a historic summit at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone on April 27. "That's why I think he has to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize".

Last week, Kim Jong Un became the first North Korean leader to visit the South since the Korean War.

Trump has been critical of the deal former President Barack Obama struck with Iran to end their nuclear enrichment scheme and has signaled that he'll be pulling out of the agreement soon, despite objects from allies overseas.

Fans at a rally in Michigan Saturday rewarded Trump's efforts with chants of "Nobel, Nobel, Nobel", much to the president's delight.

Peace in the Korean peninsula?

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have made the US President the 2/1 favorite to win the Nobel Peace Prize. "Trump has shown major steps toward delivering peace".

As well as Obama, three US presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and Jimmy Carter. Former Vice President Al Gore also received the award.
