Quoted: The Washington Post on Donald Trump, Shinzo Abe, and Nobel Peace Prize
The Washington Post: Trump says he’s been nominated for a Nobel. But did Japan’s Abe actually do it? Or was it S. Korea’s Moon?
Some analysts speculated that Trump had indeed mistaken Abe for Moon. However, some noted that Abe has repeatedly shown that he values his relationship with the U.S. president. “A pretty deft move to use on a man who has repeatedly proven receptive to flattery,” Mintaro Oba, a former State Department staffer who now works for West Wing Writers, wrote on Twitter.
