Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize. Here's which other presidents have won

Two Norwegian lawmakers have nominated President Donald Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his historic efforts to stabilize the North Korean government.

A group of US lawmakers nominated Trump for the prize earlier this year, before the summit had taken place (and before it was canceled, then reinstated). Asked directly in May by a reporter if he deserved the Nobel, Mr Trump replied: "Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it".

But before placing your bets, you may want to read what some members of the five-strong Norwegian Nobel Committee, which chooses the victor of the $1 million prize each October, have written about the USA president in the past. If trump received the award, he would be the fifth American President to be awarded this honor.

During the summit, Trump and Kim signed a brief document committing the unspecified security guarantees for North Korea in exchange for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Sky Bet is offering odds of the United States president winning the award this year at 8/1, while it puts the chances of him winning the prize alongside someone else at 5/4.

Mr Obama was awarded the prize in 2009 less than a year after entering office.

The initiative of nominating Donald trump belongs to the former justice Minister of Norway Per-Willy Amundsen and Christian Tybring-Yedda.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee's vice-chair, Henrik Syse, wrote in a blog in December, 2016, that: "President-elect Donald Trump has, with his rhetoric, lowered the threshold for moral decency so far it is downright scary". The remaining two committee members appear not to have written publicly about Trump. A record 330 people were nominated this year. Members of parliaments and national assemblies, justices at the the International Court of Justice, university professors of certain disciplines, previous recipients of the peace prize are among those who qualify.

Early Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted that there was no nuclear threat from North Korea following the summit.
