Crowd chants 'Nobel' at Trump rally over North Korea talks

President Trump was met Saturday with chants suggesting that he be given the Nobel Peace Prize, as he discussed possible talks with North Korea.

"That's very nice, thank you. That's very nice," Trump replied to chants of "Nobel, Nobel, Nobel."

"I just want to get the job done," he added. The chants came as Trump spoke at a campaign-style rally in Washington, Mich.

Trump is expected to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late May or sometime in June. The encounter will mark the first such meeting between a sitting U.S. president and North Korean leader.

Trump's remarks on Saturday come just one day after Kim became the first North Korean leader to cross into South Korea, where he met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. 

In a joint statement issued after the meeting, the two leaders vowed to work toward eliminating all nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula. The two also stated plans to enter into talks with the U.S. about declaring a formal end to the Korean War of the 1950s.
