Fox News is reporting that Norwegian Parliament Member, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, nominated Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
Tybring-Gjedde said to Fox that he nominated Trump for doing more to “create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
If you remember, Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize for … well… for … hmm… oh, that’s right for absolutely nothing.
Tybring-Gjedde said that Trump “should be awarded” the Nobel Peace Price because of his deal between the UAE and Isreal, because this agreement is groundbreaking in that these two countries have had a “hostile” relationship “for as long as you can remember.”
Tybring-Gjedde told Fox that this agreement reminds him of some of the other successful agreements in the past, like the Camp David Accords, Oslo Accords, and the PLO. He said that all the members of these historic agreements received the Nobel Peace Prize.
He says, “that is a very, very important region in the world” everyone else that strives for peace gets awarded. Tybring-Gjedde says, “and all efforts that lead to peace in that region should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and also for Donald J. Trump.”
“Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “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.
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.”
Listen, Obama got the Prize for being the first black President of the United States of America.
It is really that simple.
American is sold to the rest of the world as this racist country that hates anyone that isn’t Christian and white. So, electing our first black President said that our nation was no longer controlled by the racism that founded our country. The prize should be given to Americans not Obama on this logic.
Our country was founded on liberty, not slavery.
Our citizens rose up and freed the slaves. Our country has consistently fought wars overseas to help loosen the chains of slaves in other countries. (ie. Auschwitz)
None of this matters because the narrative that America is racist will always be easier to sell.
Trump deserves to win the Nobel Prize more than Barack Obama ever did.
I doubt Trump will be given the award. It isn’t sexy or popular to support the President of the United States. He creates peace and puts America first in every deal he makes.
This is the second time that Christian Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Trump. I hope he wins this time, but I’m not holding my breath.
