President Donald Trump declined to directly answer Wednesday whether he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, instead acknowledging that others have made the claim.
Leaders, including South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), have said Trump deserves the prize if negotiations with North Korea lead to peace. Moon had a historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and credited Trump for helping the peace process along, and Trump announced Wednesday that a time and place is set for his own meeting with Kim.
“Do you deserve the Nobel Prize?” a reporter asked, presumably about the prize for peace.
“Everyone thinks so, but I would never say it,” Trump replied with a smile.
“You know what I want to do? I want to get it finished. The prize I want is victory for the world,” he added.
