U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un could be in line for a Nobel Peace Prize. The two leaders have a chance of winning the award after their historic meeting in Singapore on Tuesday. Betting companies have cut their odds on one or both of them getting the prestigious prize. President Trump is now 2/1 to get it, either alone or as part of a team. North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons and the USA stopping its "war games" with South Korea would definitely make the world a safer place. Asle Sveen, 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 President Trump and Chairman Kim will go down in history as a key event of the early twenty-first century. It was the first time ever that a sitting U.S. President and a North Korean leader have met. The two men shook hands, met in private, had lunch together, and signed an agreement that promised a better future together. Some people say the two leaders do not deserve the prize. They say that the world is less secure because President Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Agreement and destabilized the Iran nuclear deal. The critics also point to human rights issues in North Korea. Other people say South Korean President Moon Jae-in deserves the prize.
