Michigan Crowd Chants 'Nobel!' When Trump Brings Up North Korea

"Nobel! Nobel!" they chanted, cutting off Trump's typically freewheeling update on his efforts on Korea.

Trump was praising Chinese President Xi Jinping when he noted how helpful he's been with North Korea.

Four presidents throughout history have won a Nobel Peace Prize, including Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter Woodrow Wilson and Theodore Roosevelt.

If Trump does indeed land the Nobel, he will be the fifth United States president to win it, following Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama. Trump claimed that the South Korean president gave the USA "tremendous credit" for this foreign policy achievement, and as he further discussed the Korean summit, the crowd started a boisterous chant calling for Trump to be awarded the Nobel peace prize.

President Trump was talking about North Korea at a rally in Washington Township, Michigan on Saturday when the audience began to break out in chants of "Nobel!" He is now backed by even Trump critics within the GOP, notably Senator Lindsey Graham, who once called Trump "crazy" and said he was "unfit for office".

Even so, peace talks between North and South Korea started in January of this year, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in credited the USA president with having "made a huge contribution to make inter-Korean talks happen".

Just the fact that Kim Jong-un and Moon Jae-in met, shook hands and actually seemed cordial with one another is a big step in the right direction for everyone in North and South Korea, however, you can't blame South Korean residents and the rest of the world for being a bit skeptical.

This was the first time a North Korean leader has crossed the border since the Korean War. It was also the first time that the summit was being held in South Korea. This declaration committed the two Koreas to denuclearization and peace talks to bring a formal end to the Korean War, 65 years after the hostilities ended with an armistice.

Technically, both the countries are still at war since no peace treaty has been signed between them.

In a joint declaration after the talks, the two leaders officially inaugurated a document formally called the 'Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula.

The South Korean President is also slated to visit Pyongyang later this year, according to a statement released by his presidential office.
