Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump ally who is sometimes critical of the president, said that if Trump "can lead us to ending the Korean War" while "getting North Korea to give up their nuclear programme" in a verifiable way, then he "deserves the Nobel Peace Prize and then some".

A decade after Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, could his White House successor Donald Trump follow suit for navigating the thorny North Korean nuclear standoff?

"Although North Korea has evaded demands from the global community to cease its aggression for decades, President Trump's peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula", the lawmakers' letter to the Nobel Peace Prize committee concludes.

The lawmakers hailed, in particular, Trump's spearheading of "one of the most successful global sanctions regime in history" to prevent Pyongyang from advancing its ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons.

"It would have been unimaginable just a few weeks ago that the North Korean and South Korean leaders would even be talking let alone embracing in public", Messer said.

"It's surreal in the sense that it's clearly premature to be talking about giving anybody a Nobel Peace Prize", said Aaron David Miller, a former USA diplomat and negotiator in several Democratic and Republican administrations.

Early this week, Trump told reporters that he is focused on achieving peace in the region. During the meeting, Jae-in received a telegram from Lee Hee-ho, a former first lady of South Korea, congratulating him for a successful summit meeting with Jong-un on Friday and wishing him a Nobel Peace Prize.

The very idea, put forward by a handful of Republican lawmakers in a Wednesday letter nominating the USA president for the esteemed award, is enough to make his American and worldwide detractors cringe.

"It's surreal in the sense that it's clearly premature to be talking about giving anybody a Nobel Peace Prize", said Aaron David Miller, a former United States diplomat and negotiator in several Democratic and Republican administrations.

Peace in the Korean peninsula?

Pelosi and other Trump detractors are in an uncomfortable position where the Nobel Peace Prize is concerned. "Trump has shown major steps toward delivering peace".

The Nobel chatter also reflects an impassioned debate taking place over the exact role of America's president in the ongoing diplomatic overtures.
