For those of us who were stunned when Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, the idea of awarding the Nobel Peace Prize for an actual accomplishment is somewhat novel and heartening.  Even though we understand that the Nobel committee doesn’t award its Peace Prize on the grounds of achievement, it’s a novel idea worth sharing.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) said Friday that North and South Korea are nearing peace because of the pressure President Donald Trump exerted on Kim Jong Un, adding that if a peace agreement materializes, the president should receive the Nobel Peace Price.

Trump imposed sanctions on North Korea and publicly warned Kim to end his nuclear ambitions or face “fire and fury,” and widespread criticism followed. In light of the pending denuclearization deal between North and South Korea, however, Graham credited Trump for forcing Kim to the bargaining table.

“Here’s the deal: It wouldn’t have happened without Trump,” Graham told “Fox and Friends” in an interview at the University of South Carolina. “It may not happen, but it’d be the biggest change since the end of the hostilities, the fact that the North Korean and South Korean president met and they vow to end the war.”

. . . . “Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China he was serious about bringing about change,” Graham added. “We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.”
