Two lawmakers from Norway nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after the meeting. The nomination comes after Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway took a swipe at former President Barack Obama's own Nobel Peace Prize saying "look, the last president was handed Nobel Peace Prize".
The committee can not publicly reveal who has been nominated, so it is unclear if Mr Trump is in the running to scoop the prize in 2018. South Korean President Moon Jae-in said in April that Trump deserved the prize.
In a letter to Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen, Bryant and six governors wrote that Trump's "firm stance against nuclearization, coupled with his willingness to engage one-on-one with Pyongyang, has succeeded in opening new avenues of cooperation, friendship and unity between the two Koreas - and the rest of the world", according to the Associated Press.
"Since taking office, President Trump has worked tirelessly to apply maximum pressure on North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region".
AT&T approval boosts stocks of possible merger targets
At the time , AT&T called the move a "radical and inexplicable departure from decades of antitrust precedent". Shares of AT&T spiked immediately after the announcement and are now down about 2% in after-hours trading.
Mr Trump's Norwegian nominations come after United Kingdom bookmakers slashed the odds of him winning after his summit with Kim Jong Un in Singapore. Trump himself nearly pulled out of the summit in the weeks leading up to it.
It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year's prize, but he was also put forth as a candidate in 2016 and 2017.
Syse said his writings as a political philosopher and commentator 'should in no way be read as comments pertaining to the prize or to our process in what is a five-person committee'. His headline: 'Trump is no Hitler'. A record 330 people were nominated this year.
Any member of a national assembly may submit nominations for consideration.
Just after the summit in Singapore, US secretary of state Mike Pompeo flew to South Korea to discuss the meetings that had been held with Mr Kim and his regime, and told reporters that there was a lot more discussed and loosely agreed to than was included in a joint statement following the summit.
