01) Trump ASKED For Nobel Peace Prize Nomination


“Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is not denying a report saying he nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize because he was asked by the White House.

Asahi Shimbun, one of Japan’s largest newspapers, ran a report on Sunday that said Abe nominated Trump for the award after the president’s denuclearization summit last year with Kim Jong Un. The article was based on sources within the Japanese government, and it came out after Trump’s press conference on Friday during which he bragged about receiving a copy of Abe’s five-page nomination letter to the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Intriguingly, Asahi‘s report says Abe was prompted to nominate Trump after receiving an “informal” request from the U.S. government.
