Trump calls peace big­ger deal than No­bel

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — S.A. Miller

Pres­i­dent Trump said Thurs­day that he wants peace, not a prize.

Asked by a reporter about re­cent talk that he de­serves the No­bel Peace Prize for the progress he has made to­ward de­nu­cle­ariz­ing North Korea, Mr. Trump de­murred.

“I want to have peace in the world. That’s what I re­ally want, more so than the No­bel Peace Prize or any other prize,” the pres­i­dent said. “I’d like to see, ideally in the Mid­dle East but in the en­tire world.”

De­spite North Korea’s re­cent threats to can­cel a sum­mit be­tween Kim Jong-un and the pres­i­dent, Mr. Trump said he re­mained op­ti­mistic that a deal could be made in which the com­mu­nist regime gives up its nu­clear weapons pro­gram. “I think we have a chance to do it. North Korea’s go­ing to be very im­por­tant,” he said.
