According to Fox News, President Donald J. Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination comes only weeks after the Trump administration brokered successful peace talks between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, resulting in the normalization of relations between the two countries and which led to further normalization deals with Serbia and Kosovo just last week.
Trump was nominated for the award by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, who has celebrated Trump's endeavors to resolve conflicts all over the globe. Here is what Tybring-Gjedde said about his decision to nominate Trump:
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees...As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,"
Tybring-Gjedde also went on to praise the Trump administration for breaking the cycle of US Presidents starting global conflicts: "Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter"
The last President to receive the award was Barack Obama in 2009, just 263 days into his first term as President. Obama won the award for .... well .... who knows, probably just being Barack Obama.
As one would imagine, the journo-sphere is just loving the idea of Trump winning the award:
So there you go. The media hates peace in the middle east. Anything Trump supports is toxic because they hate him so much. They're shameless. What else is new?
I hope Trump wins because I think he deserves to win. What his administration has done with respect to foreign policy has been very impressive. Not everything has gone as planned (North Korea, for example), but I give him a lot of credit for trying things that were once thought to be "impossible".
