Geraldo Rivera says Trump is 'shoo-in' for Nobel Peace Prize

Fox News Channel's Geraldo Rivera said President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump's top adviser on Asia to serve as deputy national security adviser United Auto Workers strike against GM poised to head into eighth day Trump doubles down on call to investigate Biden after whistleblower complaint: 'That's the real story' MORE is "a shoo-in for the Nobel Peace Prize" for "helping supervise" the possible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

Rivera, a correspondent-at-large for the network, said the U.S. "now stands on the verge of helping supervise the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula."

"Something unthought of, unthinkable until recently," he added. "I think the president, who will be, I think, a shoo-in for the Nobel Peace Prize, should take the high road and forget about President Obama and what the Democrats did when they were in charge.

"He is in charge now and he is the president for all Americans. So let’s just go forward, emphasize the positive. That is all I’m saying," he advised.

Trump earlier this week said that "everyone thinks" he should win the Nobel prize, but added "he would never say it" himself.

"The prize I want is victory for the world, not even here. I want victory for the world because that’s what we’re talking about. So that’s the only prize I want," Trump added Thursday.

A summit meeting with Kim Jong Un will take place on June 12 in Singapore, the president announced on Twitter on Thursday.

Rivera also weighed in on controversial CIA director nominee Gina Haspel, predicting that she will be "a terrific director" of the agency while dismissing her past oversight of enhanced interrogation methods, including waterboarding, on terror suspect detainees at a black site in Thailand following the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001.

"She [Haspel] would make a terrific director of the CIA. She’s going to be director of the CIA, not the Boy Scouts of America," Rivera told "Fox & Friends."

“The whole clandestine side of our conflict with our enemies is a sometimes brutal business,” Rivera said. “What happened with waterboarding and the torture, in retrospect, may seem regrettable. But there is no denying that it did lead to the courier, that led us to the terror mastermind who inflicted so much pain and suffering on the United States.”
