(Newser) – Friday's developments between North and South Korea had President Trump making an all-caps statement: "KOREAN WAR TO END!" he wrote triumphantly. Now others are making bold statements of their own, calling for Trump to get the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in bringing the adversaries together. A typical sentiment among supporters comes from Laura Ingraham of Fox News, who tweets, "When will we see the headline: 'Trump Ends the Korean War'? Unlike Obama, he actually deserves the Nobel Peace Prize." She wasn't the only one making the assertion. Details on that and other related developments:

  • 2 lawmakers: Perhaps the most prominent voice on the subject is that of GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, who said the Korean pledges for denuclearization and peace "wouldn't have happened without Trump," per the Washington Times. “We’re not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize." Meanwhile, GOP Rep. Luke Messer of Indiana is trying to drum up congressional support for a Trump Nobel nomination. “We are seeing unprecedented progress toward peace, and it’s a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership,” he said.
