Lee Hee-ho had congratulated him and suggested he should win the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of his efforts. But by positioning Trump as the ultimate man of peace, as the master negotiator Trump portrays himself has (despite very limited evidence to back it up), Moon is hoping to nudge the USA president away from confrontation, and toward tangible peacemaking achievements.

Moon's endorsement of a Nobel for Trump, who has faced one ethical scandal after another at home, came as the South Korean leader presided over a meeting of his senior presidential staff Monday. "The only thing we need is peace", Moon told his top aides at a meeting, according to media reports.

"There's something that I like about it because you're there, you're actually there where, if things work out, there's a celebration to be had on the site, not in a third party country", said Trump.

"It's very simple", Trump said, seeking to strike a balance between optimism and skepticism about his upcoming summit with Kim. On Saturday, at a rally in Michigan, Trump told the crowd the meeting would take place in the "next three or four weeks". "That's very nice, thank you".

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has ran hot and cold toward Trump, said the US leader was a serious contender for the award.

"I just want to get the job done." Sen.

Mr Jannuzi, a former deputy executive director of Amnesty International USA, also said he was confident Mr Trump would travel to the Korean peninsula for the talks - as now appears highly likely.

The county sheriff in charge of the jail where Reinking is being held said Tuesday that Reinking has so far been cooperative. Reinking's grandmother, Marilyn Hopper , said her grandson "was a sick boy" and she was devastated by news of the attack.

"Just asking!" Trump tweeted. No matter what the likelihood is for Trump's getting a Nobel, his public image among South Koreans has been improving markedly as the mood on the Korean Peninsula shifts from fears of war to hopes of peace.

If he were to oversee the verifiable dismantling of the North's nuclear arms and missile programs and formally end the 1950-53 Korean War, Trump would claim an accomplishment that has eluded his predecessors.

Trump's seemingly conciliatory tone toward the North Korean dictator stands in stark contrast to Trump's comments a year ago about the country's nuclear tests in which he called Kim Jong Un "rocket man". Trump tried to visit the DMZ while in Asia in November but was thwarted by fog.

On Friday, North and South Korean leaders held a historic summit followed by signing of the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification of the Korean Peninsula, which has become a formal foundation of further denuclearization of North Korea and a peace deal between two countries.

There's been much speculation about where Trump and Kim might meet.

He has been accused of ruthlessly executing scores of aging generals and party elite members, including his own uncle.
