Not too long ago, Donald Trump was celebrating and gloating over the fact that North Korea was supposedly going to denuclearize quickly and that there were talks of peace happening between North and South Korea. Trump was more than happy to take credit for the whole thing (even though North Korea actually stated that Trump had nothing to do with its move to denuclearize).
After word of denuclearization got out, several Republican governors — who were clearly desperate for a GOP win — made a call for Trump to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for “his transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula.” The GOP governors stated:
“Though he has only been in office one year, President Trump has achieved an unprecedented victory for global peace and security. 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.”
We all know that the Nobel Peace Prize is something that Trump doesn’t deserve at all — and luckily, there’s not a chance in hell he’s going to get it. It seems that Trump has been duped by North Korea, who never had any intention of getting rid of their nuclear program, as Trump so enthusiastically claimed. International relations and political science professor Robert E. Kelly sent out several tweets earlier today, outlining how Trump had been made a fool of:
This is really, really bad news for Trump, especially as he is meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-In tomorrow, likely to get some bad news. Trump can pretty much kiss the idea of receiving the Nobel Peace Prize goodbye because it really looks as though Trump has been played. This will drive Trump absolutely nuts due to his jealousy of former President Barack Obama, who won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Just another way Trump can’t measure up!
