US President Donald Trump has said he would get a Nobel Prize if they were given out “fairly”.

When Mr Trump met Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan on Monday, a reporter from the Pakistani press corps asked him about mediating the India-Pakistan stand-off over the disputed Kashmir region.

When the reporter told Mr Trump he would deserve a Nobel Prize if he could resolve the dispute, the president readily agreed.

Mr Trump said he would get the Nobel Prize “for a lot of things if they gave it out fairly, which they don’t”.

The president added that his predecessor, Barack Obama, got the prize so early in his presidency “he had no idea why he got it”.

He added: “That was the only thing I agreed with him on.”
