VIDEO: College Students Say Trump Should Not Receive Nobel Prize, Yet Can't Explain Why Obama Won the Prize

"What he has accomplished on the Korean Peninsula certainly makes him deserving".

The seven GOP governors are in addition to 18 other Republican lawmakers, led by, Rep. Luke Messer (R-Ind.), who have formally nominated the president.

Led by Governor McMaster of SC, the letter praised the President's push towards the full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula; saying his administration is clearing the path towards the end of the 68-year-long Korean War.

The governors' letter came amid reports from South Korea's Yonhap News Agency that North Korea was cancelling a high-level meeting planned between the two countries due to the ongoing military exercises between the US and South Korea.

In August previous year, tension heightened in the Pacific region when the two leaders exchanged "fire and fury" and "ball of fire" threats and counter-threats, with Guam in North Korea's crosshairs. Three days later, North Korea announced the suspension of its nuclear-testing program.

Did President Donald Trump order a replica of the Nobel Peace Prize to display on his desk in the Oval Office?

Yonhap also said North Korea's Korean Central News Agency reported that Pyongyang was questioning whether next month's summit between Kim and Trump could also take place as planned.

The turnaround comes month after Trump rhetoric toward North Korea ignited fears that an armed confrontation with the reclusive country could be looming.
