Seven United States governors are throwing their full support behind President Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize this week; sending a letter to the Norwegian Committee that called for the Commander-in-Chief to receive the award in 2019.

Jeff Colyer is supporting President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. "President Trump is due to be honored for his ability to bring everyone to the table to discuss a way forward which offers the Korean Peninsula, and the world, a path toward stability and peace".

The governors' letter follows one from 18 U.S. House Republicans, who earlier this month formally nominated Trump for the award.


Trump is expected meet with Kim Jong Un in Singapore in June, a first for a sitting US president. Graham first suggested the Nobel Peace Prize to the president days after both Koreans leaders met for the first time.

"After almost two decades of gridlock and global anxiety surrounding North Korea's nuclear program, we are now, at last, on the precipice of peace". "There is but one new variable: President Donald J. Trump and his successful policy of security through strength".

In addition to Colyer, these governors signed the letter: Henry McMaster, South Carolina; Kay Ivey, Alabama; Eddie Baza Calvo, Guam; Phil Bryant, Mississippi; Paul LePage, Maine; and Jim Justice, West Virginia.
