Trump’s Peace Prize Nomination Came at Behest of White House: Report

Japan’s prime minister nominated President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize at the request of the White House, one of Japan’s largest newspapers reported over the weekend.

Trump boasted at a news conference Friday that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him a copy of a five-page letter he’d sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee regarding the nomination, but the national newspaper, Asahi Shimbun, reported Sunday that the U.S. government “informally” had asked Japan to nominate Trump following his meeting last year in Singapore with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Abe refused to comment Monday during a meeting of the lower house of Japan’s parliament because Peace Prize nominations are kept secret for 50 years, NBC News reported.

But he also didn’t exactly deny the report: “I’m not saying it’s not true.”
