The two leaders, who Trump says "fell in love" and are now exchanging letters, join contenders including German chancellor Angela Merkel and former Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont. Other potential nominees include The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has challenged many of Trump’s policies, Congolese doctor Denis Mukwege, who has campaigned against sexual violence, and Raif Badawi - the Saudi Arabian blogger who is imprisoned for allegedly “insulting Islam”.
This side of the pond, the bookies have Jeremy Corbyn and Theresa May tied at 100/1 to take the prize.
Naturally, with Trump and Jong-un leading the field, Twitter has been buzzing with reaction.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are both nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?? What kind of fuckery is this?? 🤷🏻🙈
