President Trump Nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize
President Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in brokering a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
The President, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the United Arab Emirates Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed signed the agreement in August.
A statement released last month said the historic agreement came at “the request of President Trump.”
The Nobel prize nomination was submitted by a member of the Norwegian Parliament Christian Tybring-Gjedde who praised Trump for working to resolve protracted conflicts worldwide.
In this nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, Tybring-Gjedde said Trump and his administration played a “key role” in ensuring the establishment of relations between the UAE and Israel. He wrote, “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.”
Despite Democrats’ assertion that President Trump has damaged the United States’ standing in world politics, Tybring-Gjedde noted it has been Trump who has withdrawn a significant number of troops from the Middle East.
The Norwegian noted, “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.”
Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News that he wasn’t trying to curry favor from the president with his nomination. He let slip that he himself is not a “big Trump supporter,” he argued that the Nobel Prize committee should set aside how they feel about “the way he behaves sometimes” and “judge him on the facts.”
Tybring-Gjedde was referring to the fact that “people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less” than Trump.” He pointed to the example of Baraka Obama who he said, “did nothing.”
Besides Obama was nominated for the prize just 11 days after he took office. In addition there have been three other presidents to win the Nobel Peace Prize: President Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, President Woodrow Wilson in 1920, and President Jimmy Carter in 2002.
This makes the second time; Trump has been nominated. Tybring-Gjedde along with another Norwegian official made such a nomination in 2018 following the president’s landmark Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Tybring-Gjedde said in a Facebook post, “It is now to hope that the Nobel Committee is able to consider what Trump has achieved internationally and that it does not stumble in established prejudice against the U.S. President.”
Founder of The DC Patriot Matt Crouch tweeted:
Can you imagine the riots and temper tantrums from the leftist mob when President Trump is re-elected and wins the Nobel Peace Prize in the same year..
That would indeed be two great wins.
