CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - Wednesday, Gov. Phil Bryant answered media questions about his support for President Donald J. Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
"He has brought the North Korean leadership to the bargaining table," said Bryant, during an unveiling ceremony for a new Gold Star Families Memorial Monument at Camp Shelby.
Bryant is one of several state leaders who have said Trump should be considered for the Nobel Prize.
He and six other state governors signed a letter supporting Trumps' nomination.
"The discussion of doing away with the nuclear weapons, the greatest threat to America was North Korea and now we're beginning an opportunity to work together with North Korea on the peninsula," Bryant said.
18 U.S. House Republicans formally nominated the president earlier this month.
