The Republican lawmakers have written in their letter that it is Trump's "peace through strength policies" that are bringing peace to the Korean peninsula and that his "tireless work" towards peace in this world deserves recognition.
McKinley and Jenkins were joined by 16 lawmakers, all House Republicans, in signing the letter intended for the Nobel Peace Prize Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen regarding Trump's efforts.
The letter says that Mr Trump's "peace through strength policies are working" in bringing North Korea to the negotiating table. The Prize Committee has not announce the nominees.

No matter what the likelihood is for Trump's getting a Nobel, his public image among South Koreans has been improving markedly as the mood on the Korean peninsula shifts from fears of war to hopes of peace. Former US President Barack Obama was awarded the prize in 2009, "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen global diplomacy and cooperation between peoples". The letter gives several reasons why the president deserves the award.
