Gov. Bryant backs Trump for Nobel Peace Prize

President Donald Trump speaks at the North Side Gymnasium in Elkhart Ind. Thursday

Governor Paul LePage and a group of fellow governors are backing President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

All signed a letter to that effect, which was sent to Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, praising President Trump's historic progress in achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula. "The President's firm stance against nuclearization, coupled with his willingness to engage one-on-one with Pyongyang, has succeeded in opening new avenues of cooperation, friendship and unity between the two Koreas - and the rest of the world", the letter says.

North and South Korea have exchanged overtures recently in an effort to ease tensions between the two nations split asunder following the 1953 armistice that ceased aggression between the two countries.

McMaster is among seven governors who wrote to the Nobel committee in Norway to consider Trump for the prize, which will be awarded later this year. What he has accomplished on the Korean Peninsula certainly makes him deserving.
