Bryant signs letter supporting President Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize nomination

JACKSON, Miss (WJTV) - Early on, Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant tweeted supporting President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in North and South Korea.

Now Bryant, along with six other governors, has signed a letter backing the nomination. The letter has been sent to Norwegian Nobel Committee Chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen citing Trump's "transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula."
