Earlier , Said Trump would be Deserving of Nobel Peace Prize if North Korea Disarms
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Luke Messer (IN-06) tonight issued the following statement after a South Korean official announced details of a potential meeting between President Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
“Tonight’s unprecedented announcement shows President Trump’s peace through strength strategy is working,” Messer said. “North Korea is signaling for the first time a willingness to discuss disarming its nuclear capabilities. I applaud the President and I’m hopeful this can lead to peace.”
“If North Korea talks lead to concrete action, President Trump should be well on his way to his own Nobel Peace Prize. North Korea is signaling for the first time a willingness to discuss disarming its nuclear capabilities. If this happens, it would be a direct result of President Trump’s strong leadership and decisive action toward the brutal North Korean tyrant. Meaningful talks would be more progress than we saw during the entire Obama Administration,” Messer said. “President Obama received a Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for being a charming presidential candidate. If North Korea disarms, President Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize would be well deserved.”
Messer worked with the Trump Administration to implement the harshest sanctions ever on North Korea.
