Following what appears to be a successful first meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, U.S. President Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by two Norwegian lawmakers. Though the deadline for this year’s prize has already passed, the nomination should make Trump eligible for the price in 2019.

Fortune writes:

U.S. President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

Nominations for the world’s most coveted prize are open to lawmakers, academics and researchers from around the world. The Nobel Committee in Oslo typically receives hundreds of nominations each year, and past candidates have also included Russian President Vladimir Putin and Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. A record 330 people were nominated this year.

While supporters of the President are praising the nomination as evidence of Trump’s good will and desire to maintain stability and world peace on the Korean Peninsula, not everyone agrees.

Leading left-leaning web site The Huffington Post highlighted in a headline that the lawmakers who voted for trump were part of Norway’s far right:

When asked what he thinks of the Nobel Prize, Trump responded with, “The prize I want is victory for the world”:

The Twitter-verse immediately pounced on the news with varying opinions:

According to its website, the Nobel Peace Prize is given to the person “who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”
