Gov. Phil Bryant joined six others in signing a letter nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

"President Trump has achieved an unprecedented victory for global peace and security", the governors write, which "has succeeded in opening new avenues of cooperation, friendship and unity between the two Koreas - and the rest of the world". The governors' letter came amid reports from South Korea's Yonhap News Agency that North Korea was canceling a high-level meeting planned between the two countries due to the ongoing military exercises between the USA and South Korea.

The turnaround comes month after Trump rhetoric toward North Korea ignited fears that an armed confrontation with the reclusive country could be looming. "We're not there yet, but if this happens, President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize".

Presidents have received the prize in the past.
