GETTY PEACE EFFORT Trump is determined to denucularise North Korea

President Trump has been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize following his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, according to a report Wednesday. "I think that we can do by sending a clear signal by giving Trump the peace prize".

Norwegian Nobel Committee must receive the nomination before February 1.

"Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region".

The formal nomination letter, penned by Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, details the strong negotiating stance taken by Trump, relating it to a similar strategy employed by former President Theodore Roosevelt, an iconic figure that served as 26th President of the United States.

Premier League fixtures deal Arsenal boss Unai Emery a nightmare start
The Premier League announced the fixture list for the upcoming season earlier on Thursday, and it has not been kind to Arsenal . Tottenham would be hosting us on November 24 and the reverse fixture would take place at Stamford Bridge on February 27.

The nomination missed this years' deadline for the prize, so Mr Trump's nomination would only make him eligible for the award next year.

In 2015, Geir Lundestad, who served as the secretary of the Nobel Committee for 25 years beginning in 1990, regretted the decision to give the prize to Mr Obama.

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

Trump also put forward as a candidate in 2016 and 2017.

Rodman arrives in Singapore ahead of summit
Rodman's ties to Kim blossomed during a controversial visit to North Korea in early 2013, when he called Kim "a friend for life". And as Cuomo tried to squeeze in another question, Rodman unleashed the waterworks, visibly surprising the anchor.

The Nobel peace prize is one of six awards given by the Nobel Committee.

For a nomination to be considered valid, it must be made by a person or organisation that falls in the broad categories listed in the Nobel Committee's rules.

Any member of a national assembly may submit nominations for consideration. The worldwide community ratcheted up economic sanctions at the time as North Korea launched several intercontinental ballistic missiles and tested their most powerful nuclear weapon.
