Trump has officially been nominated for the Nobel Prize for his summit with Kim Jong Un

President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize — for real this time — due to his participation in the Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, The Associated Press reports. Trump was nominated by two members of Norway's populist Progress Party, who said Trump has "taken a huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace, and reconciliation between North and South Korea."

Earlier this year, 18 House Republicans nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work "to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean Peninsula, and bring peace to the region." Trump said this spring that "everyone thinks" he should win the Nobel, "but I would never say it."

Four American presidents have won the prize, including former President Barack Obama in 2009.
