President Trump has just been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize following the historic peace deal between Israel and UAE he brokered last month:
NY POST – President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, according to a report.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, submitted the nomination, Fox News reported.
“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.
In his letter to the Nobel Committee, Tybring-Gjedde wrote that the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between the two nations.
“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,” he wrote, Fox News reported.
Tybring-Gjedde also cited Trump’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.”
And he lauded the president for withdrawing a large number of forces from the Middle East.
This isn’t the first time President Trump has been nominated by Tybring-Gjedde, however I do think he stands a better chance of getting the it this time around considering he’s actually brokered a historic peace deal between two nations. The first nomination was after his Singapore summit with Lil Kim.
As you well know, Trump also brokered recent agreements between Serbia, Kosovo and Israel, so surely that will also factor into the decision.
According to the Post, we won’t know until next October who wins it for 2021. Hopefully Trump will be a shoe-in for the prize considering all he’s done toward peace. As we pointed out the other day, it was awarded to Obama for far less.
