If the report is true?
It hints that Donald Trump or one of his flunkies round someone stupid enough to sponsor Trump for the peace Prize which is ridiculous and idiotic and downright embarrassing ….
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe wouldn’t say Monday whether he nominated President Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating with North Korea, even though local media reports suggest that he did.
Trump said Friday that Abe had personally given him “the most beautiful copy” of a five-page nomination letter recommending him for the prize for opening talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and lowering tensions.
But Abe wouldn’t confirm that Monday.
“The Nobel Committee for the last 50 years has not disclosed who recommended and who was recommended. In line with this policy, I would like to refrain from giving a comment,” Abe said in response to a question from an opposition lawmaker.
Pushed again to confirm or deny the report, he added: “I am not saying it’s not true.”
But Japanese media reports on Sunday suggested that Trump was telling the truth.
The Nikkei newspaper, citing government sources, said Abe had indeed sent in a nomination.
“He showed a five page-long copy of a letter of recommendation for the Nobel Peace Prize to President Trump at the past summit meeting,” it quoted a source as saying.
The Asahi Shimbun cited an unnamed government source as saying the nomination came in response to an “unofficial” U.S. request, made after last year’s summit in Singapore…..
