Seven governors sign letter urging Nobel for Trump

The letter cites the President's quote, "transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in also vocalized his support for Trump to win the Nobel Prize, but when the president was asked about it, he shared he wants something more important.

"The president's firm stance against nuclearization, coupled with his willingness to engage one-on-one with Pyongyang, has succeeded in opening new avenues of cooperation, friendship and unity between the two Koreas - and the rest of the world", the governors state in a May 14 letter to Berit Reiss-Andersen, chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

McMaster, alongside governors Kay Ivey, Jeff Colyer, Eddie Baza Calvo, Phil Bryant, Paul LePage, and Jim Justice, sent the letter to the Nobel Prize Committee on Monday.
