Trump tells reporter “everyone” thinks he should win a Nobel Peace Prize

President Trump floated the idea of receiving some sort of Nobel Peace Prize for his upcoming summit with North Korea, telling reporters Wednesday that “everyone thinks” he should be given the prestigious awards, though, of course, he would never say he deserved it himself.

And it’s not entirely impossible.

“Part of the strength of the Nobel Peace Prize is that it is controversial,” Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chairwoman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, told the New York Times. “If it was a global consensus prize, it wouldn’t have the relevance and the authority that it actually has today.”
