Senator Lindsey Graham approves of President Trump's agreement with Kim Jong-un. According to Kellyanne Conway, unlike the previous administration, the President has been consulting with the Senate about the agreement. Conway says Graham received a call from the President and the Senator hailed the deal.
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) praised President Trump's historic meeting with Kim Jong-un to Brian Kilmeade. Graham said while he does not trust China overall, they have been helpful leading up to the summit in Singapore. He went on to say this is the last chance for peace with North Korea and President Trump will not be played like previous presidents who have made agreements with North Korea. When asked about criticism of President Trump suspending joint military exercises with South Korea, Graham believes having a pause is okay because it shows we are willing to stand down and give the North breathing space as the negotiations continue.
For the historic peace deal, two Norwegian MPs are calling for Trump to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Lawmakers Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, both of the conservative Norwegian Progress Party, wrote a nominating letter calling for Trump to be given the award by the Norwegian Nobel Committee to support the “historic” peace process.
“What’s happening now is historic,” Amundsen told state broadcaster NRK. “A process is underway to ensure world peace in the future. It's a fragile process, but we must of course do what we can to help this process bring good results. I think that we can do by sending a clear signal by giving Trump the peace prize.”
The nomination letter compares Trump’s actions to those of President Theodore Roosevelt, who they note was given the prize in 1906 for his efforts with Russia and Japan at the end of the Russian-Japanese War.
