Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize
President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, who cited the recent peace deal brokered between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News.
The nomination was made due to the work Trump had done with the Israel-UAE agreement, a nice turn around after the Nobel Prize group ignored his work with South Korea. It gave a peace prize to Obama before he had even accomplished anything.
In his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, the politician said the Israel-UAE agreement “could be a game-changer” because other Middle Eastern countries may follow suit, turning “the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity.”
Also cited in the letter was the president’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.”
Tybring-Gjedde, further, praised Trump for withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East. “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,” he wrote. (Fox News)
This is the second time Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Trump, the first being with North Korea, which the Nobel committee refused to consider.
“The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes,” he told Fox News. “The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”
The slight is even more disgusting after the same committee gave Obama a prize after he had gone around the world and gave his Muslim apology speeches; I guess that was acceptable; stopping the conflict against Israel is not.
There are 318 candidates this year for the prize, the “fourth-highest number of candidate’s ever,” according to the Committee. Of those, “211 are individuals, and 107 are organizations.”
I don’t expect Trump to get past the nomination point, the liberal world, when the leadership of the Nobel Prize Group is part of, hates him so bad Trump could cure cancer, they still would give credit elsewhere.
It would be nice to see Trump get the recognition he is due, yet we know that there are forces that will never permit this.
