Donald Trump to announce intentions on Iran nuclear deal in hours

"In the event that they do get a nuclear weapon, you are going to get an arms race within the Middle East", Johnson stated. Alfred Nobel, who created the eponymous peace award in 1895, described a Nobel Peace Prize victor as someone who has "done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

But when I looked back at the list of past Nobel Peace Prize recipients there are certain commonalities between the winners that Trump does not share.

Mr Johnson has previously accused Mr Trump of talking "nonsense" - and once quipped that he wouldn't visit parts of NY for fear of encountering him. During a recent campaign-style rally in MI, the crowd broke out into a chant of "Nobel, Nobel" while Trump was discussing his efforts in North Korea.

Ever since the President Trump initiated a move to broker peace in the Korean Peninsula several commentators have supported the idea.

In the latest episode of Freedom's Disciple, Jonathon Dunne has a special plea to requesting a Nobel Peace Prize for Trump and his handling of North Korea.


He then added that "I want to get it finished". They are doing okay because theyre helping us, and I guess theyre probably doing a little bit better because theyre helping us.

But frankly, I'm not sure why he would want the Nobel Peace Prize, given that trophy's tarnished history.

The UK's ambassador to the United States Sir Kim Darroch said the Iran agreement was "a good deal" but efforts were ongoing to "find some language, produce some action that meets the president's concerns".

Well, maybe so. There's a lot to happen yet - the peace process is approaching, as Winston Churchill might say, the end of the beginning rather than the beginning of the end - but the thaw undeniably came immediately after, and therefore can plausibly be attributed to months of bellicose rhetoric from Trump.

Trump is expected to announce Tuesday that he will not continue sanctions relief for Iran, the first major step toward ending the Obama-era nuclear pact. And President Moon of South Korea was very, very happy to hear it. The US president said more information would be released in the upcoming days. "Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it", Pres. Trump says.
