Seven Governors Sign Letter Supporting Trump For Nobel Peace Prize

President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House Wednesday

Paul LePage has signed a letter with 6 fellow governors backing President Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. The leaders of North and South Korea held a historic summit at the Korean peninsula's heavily militarized border last month, ahead of a planned meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "President Trump is due to be honored for his ability to bring everyone to the table to discuss a way forward which offers the Korean Peninsula, and the world, a path toward stability and peace". The governors' letter came amid reports from South Korea's Yonhap News Agency that North Korea was canceling a high-level meeting planned between the two countries due to the ongoing military exercises between the US and South Korea.

Ivey released a statement noting that an end to North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons "has eluded American presidents for decades".

However, when asked what President Obama had done to earn the prize despite leading a two-term presidency that passed without a single day of peace, they were almost speechless.


When Phillips asked if they thought Obama should receive the award, students said yes but struggled to articulate why they thought the former president should have received the award.

The letter is also signed by the governors of Alabama, Guam, Kansas, Mississippi, Maine and West Virginia.
