President Trump has been nominated by two Norwegian lawmakers for the Nobel Peace Prize following his summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, according to a report Wednesday.

Some Republicans have floated Trump's name for the Nobel Prize in recent months as he worked towards negotiations with North Korea.

In 2009, the Nobel Peace Prize award to newly-elected US President Barack Obama was widely criticized as premature.

Nominations must be sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee before February 1.

The committee doesn't publicly comment on who was nominated, information which is required to be kept secret for 50 years.

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. The prize would be next year's because the deadline for this year has already passed.

In their meeting, Trump and Kim pledged to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and Washington committed to provide security guarantees for its old enemy.

North Korea also agreed to return the remains of American military personnel killed in that country during the Korean War from 1950 to 1953.

Two Norwegian lawmakers officially nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize following his historic summit with Kim Jong Un; praising Trump for his ability to bring the North Korean leader to the negotiating table.

On Tuesday, Ladbrokes cut the odds of Trump winning alone or in a joint prize this year to 6/4 from 10/1 before the summit; William Hill offered odds of 6/4 on Trump and Kim to win jointly, either in 2018 or 2019.

Mr Trump has been tipped for the award as he celebrates his 72nd birthday on Thursday. Ronald Reagan was 73 when he was re-elected in 1984.
