The leaders of North and South Korea reached a historic agreement to remove all nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula, and formally end the Korean War that has lasted 65 years. Many believe President Trump deserves credit for making this happen, and should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for doing what no president before him could. But others argue Trump had nothing to do with the summit, and his erratic and dangerous behavior should not be rewarded. What do you think? 🏆

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and South Korean president Moon Jae-in have agreed to denuclearize and end the Korea War that has lasted 65 years.

The leaders of North and South Korea agreed on Friday to work to remove all nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula and, within the year, pursue talks with the United States to declare an official end to the Korean War.
At a historic summit meeting, the first time a North Korean leader had ever set foot in the South, the leaders vowed to rid the divided Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons and negotiate a treaty to replace the truce that has kept an uneasy peace for more than six decades. 

President Trump has applauded the news.

Many believe Trump was instrumental in creating the climate that allowed North and South Korea to reach a peace agreement, and he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize.

Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 after being in office for less than a year.

Criticize Trump all you want, it's hard to overstate the significance of North and South Korea reaching peace on his watch.

But others say Trump doesn't deserve credit for ending the Korean War. He only made the situation more hostile with his erratic behavior and shouldn't be rewarded for that.

Trump's entire presidency has involved him disrupting the peace, no way does he deserve a Nobel Peace Prize.
