Trump Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize By Congresswoman

The once — and perhaps future —President Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY). She cites Trump’s role in establishing the Abraham Accords, the first Middle East peace agreement in almost 30 years.

The previous two times a peace agreement has been signed in the volatile region, the Nobel Peace Price was awarded to the key figures involved. The 1976 Israeli peace agreement resulted in the prize being shared by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat shared the 1994 award for their roles in the 1993 Oslo Accord.

Rep. Tenney is not the first one to nominate Trump for this award — and his other champions for the prize have not exactly been “MAGA Republicans”. In fact — they weren’t even Americans.

In September 2020, Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde, like Rep. Tenney, nominated Trump for his role in the Abraham Accords.

An entire group of Australian law professors nominated Trump for his Middle East peace efforts that same month. They even coined the term “Trump Doctrine” for his war avoidance and emphasis on improving the lives of Americans instead.

One month later, Laura Huhtasaar, a Finnish Parliament member, cited Trump “in recognition of his endeavors to end the era of endless wars.”

Oddly, none of these nominations received much coverage among mainstream news outlets prior to the 2020 election.

President Trump has indeed separated himself from all presidents since Dwight D. Eisenhower as being the only one to preside over no new wars. His foreign policy was for America to avoid endless involvement in costly overseas conflicts. As the international support he has received for these efforts indicates, he has strength and credibility as a leader and statesman worldwide.

This stands in stark contrast to President Biden’s ongoing conflict with Iranian and North Korean-backed Houthi in the Persian Gulf and the tens of billions of U.S. dollars he has spent supporting Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. Additionally, some speculate that the Russian invasion of Ukraine would not have occurred had Donald Trump been in office. This position of the United States as a broker of peace instead of a warmonger was a hallmark of Trump’s leadership.

For those in disbelief at Trump’s nominations, it is notable that Democrat President Barack Hussein Obama won the award days after taking office for doing basically nothing.
