Ian Bremmer: Trump Should Get a Nobel Peace Prize for Ending Korean War

This is going to send the liberal psyche into a tailspin.

This morning, the world received some welcome news: it appears the Korean War, which has been legally in effect for over half a century, will be ending. Earlier today, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un crossed the de-militarized zone. He was the first North Korean leader to do so since hostilities broke out during the Truman Administration.

That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is what historians call “history.” World-changing history, in fact.

A summit has begun between Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Together, the leaders signed a pledge to end the Korean War:

President Trump announced the good news on Twitter as well:

Surely, liberals will give Trump credit for this incredible accomplishment, right? I wouldn’t count on it. Look for Democrats to find an excuse to malign this great victory, probably labeling some mix of racism and hubris.

But, one highly esteemed liberal commentator just broke with the pack and dropped what will surely be a controversial opinion: Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for this. Ian Bremmer, a political scientist and founder of the Eurasia Group, just posted this on Twitter:

That’s a nice parting shot at Obama, who, if you remember, received the Nobel Peace Prize just for showing up to work his first day.

If this peace conference holds, and the agreement lasts, Trump will be a shoo-in for the prize.

Imagine the splatter from liberals’ heads exploding after that!
