President Donald Trump got a question that was music to his ears during one of his meetings with foreign leaders at the United Nations.

When Trump met with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday, a reporter from the Pakistani press corps asked Trump about mediating the India-Pakistan standoff over the disputed region of Kashmir.

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

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

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

Trump said “That was the only thing I agreed with him on.”
