In a letter signed by six other governors, McMaster says Trump's "transformative efforts" in the Korean Peninsula peace process are worthy of the accolade once awarded to President Barack Obama.

Henry McMaster and a group of fellow governors are backing President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

In the letter, those who endorsed the President said, "Though he has only been in office one year, President Trump has achieved an unprecedented victory for global peace and security".

Messer announced he would nominate Trump for the prize, which has only been won by four other US presidents, after a meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in where the two agreed to work toward denuclearization and formally ending the decades-long Korean War. 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 USA and South Korea.

"I feel like he just thinks that he deserves many awards and that's just stupid", another student said, while another added, "I don't know, it's just too good of a prize for him to have credit for".

Presidents have received the prize in the past. Graham first suggested the Nobel Peace Prize to the president days after both Koreans leaders met for the first time.
