Many congressional Republicans have signed a letter to officially nominate President Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize:

What I found interesting — and by “interesting” I mean hilarious — is that according to this Rasmussen poll, there are a whole bunch of Democrats who think Obama deserved his Nobel for nothing more than showing up for the start of his presidency but don’t think Trump’s done anything to earn one:
Sixty-five percent (65%) of Republicans say Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize if he resolves the North Korea situation, but only 30% of Democrats agree. Sixty-four percent (64%) of Democrats say Obama still deserves his Nobel, but only 21% of Republicans agree. By nearly identical margins, Americans not affiliated with either major party tend to feel neither president is entitled to the prestigious award.
Maybe if Trump delivered more flowery speeches, drew more red lines and partook of hashtag diplomacy a little more some Dem minds would be changed.
