WASHINGTON – Beatrice Fihn, the executive director of International Campaign Against Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) that won 2017 Nobel Peace prize, recently called US President Donald Trump a ‘moron’.

Her tweet came just two days ahead of the announcement by the Nobel committee.

ICAN accepted the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for “its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its groundbreaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons,” according to a statement by the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

Joining the many others who have either called Trump a moron, or have been alleged to have called the polarising US leader a moron — including his own secretary of state Rex Tillerson — Fihn echoes the sentiments of many other Nobel Peace prize recipients.
