Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen, members of the Norwegian Progress Party, are the lawmakers responsible for the nomination, according to Norway's state broadcaster, NPK.

Even before the summit took place, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and many others backed President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Trump's potential nomination makes him eligible for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, as the 2018 process ended last January.

The committee doesn't publicly comment on who was nominated, information which is required to be kept secret for 50 years.

The percentages, calculated in California out of searches for all three terms -"President Trump", "Kim Jong-un", and "Nobel Peace Prize" - 77%, 9% and 14%, respectively.

Sheriff: 1 deputy killed, another wounded in Kansas
Bailiff said she was not sure whether the suspect was shot by one of the deputies or someone else who responded to the incident. Two sheriff's deputies were fatally shot when an inmate overpowered them near a Kansas courthouse on Friday , officials said.

"I was proud to sign the letter supporting @realDonaldTrump for the Nobel Peace Prize", Bryant wrote in a tweet in May. They argued that President Trump had already earned this distinction due to his efforts to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula.

Despite the fact that the Norwegian Nobel Committee is appointed by the Parliament, its decisions are independent. "Divisive and irresponsible from a presidential hopeful".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke to President Donald Trump on Tuesday to exchange views on the outcome of the U.S. Trump himself nearly pulled out of the summit in the weeks leading up to it.

Syse said his writings as a political philosopher and commentator 'should in no way be read as comments pertaining to the prize or to our process in what is a five-person committee'. His headline: "Trump is no Hitler".

A record 330 people were nominated for the 2018 award. Several point out that the four-point communiqué issued at the end of the meeting contained only provisions North Korea had already agreed to in summits dating back to the 1990s.
