Trump is the only new variable in the situation, they wrote, adding that "there is no one more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize".

Seven Republican governors signed a letter supporting President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for his ongoing efforts to create peace with North Korea.

Further, Kim Jong Un agreed to return three American hostages, stop missile testing and may be willing to give up North Korea's nuclear weapons - all because of Trump's strong-willed, forceful diplomacy toward North Korea.

LePage was an early supporter of Trump during the Republican presidential nominating process in 2016 and has met often with the president's administration since Trump assumed the office previous year. Then the state's lieutenant governor, the longtime SC politician became governor when Trump picked the then incumbent, Nikki Haley, as his United Nations ambassador. Trump has backed him in next month's five-way South Carolina GOP primary. The president appeared at an October fundraiser, and McMaster has featured footage from that event prominently in his television ads.

McMaster, alongside governors Kay Ivey, Jeff Colyer, Eddie Baza Calvo, Phil Bryant, Paul LePage, and Jim Justice, sent the letter to the Nobel Prize Committee on Monday. The meeting planned for Wednesday at a border truce village to discuss setting up military and Red Cross talks aimed at reducing border tension and restarting reunions between families separated by the Korean War.

The turnaround comes month after Trump rhetoric toward North Korea ignited fears that an armed confrontation with the reclusive country could be looming.
