Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un could win a Nobel Peace Prize after their historic meeting in Singapore. Betting companies cut their odds on one or both of them winning. President Trump is now 2/1 to get it. North Korea giving up nuclear weapons and the USA stopping "war games" would make the world safer. A Nobel Prize historian said: "If [there was] real disarmament on the Korean peninsula, it would be very difficult to not award them the prize."
The historic meeting between the leaders is a key event. It was the first time that leaders from the U.S. and North Korea have met. The two men shook hands, met in private, and signed an agreement for a better future. Some people say they should not get the prize after Mr Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement and upset the Iran nuclear deal. Critics also point to human rights in North Korea. Other people say South Korea's President Moon Jae-in should get it.
