Seven Republican governors signed a letter supporting President Donald Trump’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for his ongoing efforts to create peace with North Korea.
The letter was spearheaded by South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and was signed by Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, Kansas Gov. Dr. Jeff Colyer, Maine Gov. Paul LePage, Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant and West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice which was then sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee Monday.
“After nearly two decades of gridlock and global anxiety surrounding North Korea’s nuclear program, we are now, at last, on the precipice of peace,” the letter reads. “There is but one new variable: President Donald J. Trump and his successful policy of security through strength. There is no one more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize.”

The letter comes after 18 House Republicans nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize in early May, saying they believe Trump should “receive the 2019 Nobel Peace Price in recognition of his work to end the Korean War, denuclearize the Korean peninsula, and bring peace to the region.” (RELATED: 18 House Members Put Trump Up For Nobel Prize)
Trump is set to meet with Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore for the first summit between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.
