President Trump was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination is the result of his work in boosting relations between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel. The nomination was reported by Fox News earlier this week.
A Norwegian Parliament member, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, submitted Trump’s nomination. The politician praised President Trump’s efforts for pushing for peace throughout the tumultuous Middle East as well as the rest of the globe. In less than a week, there will be a signing ceremony to celebrate the Abraham Accord, a peace agreement between the UAE and Israel. Israel will be represented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Abdullah bin Zayed, the sibling of the UAE’s crown prince, is set to represent the country at the signing.
Tybring-Gjedde insists President Trump has done more to bring about peace between the two countries than other nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize. Tybring-Gjedde made the comments to Fox News during an exclusive sit-down interview. Tybring-Gjedde insists the Trump-led agreement between the two nations will prove to be monumentally important for the Middle East, potentially transforming it form a war-torn region into one where cooperation is the norm. It is quite possible this agreement sets the stage for peace across poosterity throughout the entirety of the Middle East.
Tybring-Gjedde also points to President Trump’s vitally important role in promoting discussions between two parties that were previously divided by lengthy and highly-emotional conflicts. Furthermore, Tybring-Gjedde heaped on the praise for President Trump, stating his withdrawal of troops from the Middle East has helped calm relations between the two countries.
Trump’s Peace Efforts are Contrasted With Obama’s
The overwhelmingly positive feedback from the international community for President Trump’s efforts to establish global peace are in contrast to former President Obama’s lack of effort. Obama was criticized for doing very little to earn the honor President Trump is now nominated for. In fact, Geir Lundestad, the prior secretary of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, states Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize was actually a mistake.
Tybring-Gjedde insists the committee is now on sure ground with the nomination of Trump. In fact, Trump has broken a nearly 40-year streak of United States Presidents triggering a war or pushing the country into an international conflict in which blood is shed. You have to go all the way back to Jimmy Carter to find a president with as clean of a track record as Trump.
An Unbiased Nomination
It is particularly interesting to note Tybring-Gjedde is not a significant Trump supporter yet he praises the President’s efforts. Tybring-Gjedde insists the committee will examine the facts and judge him on that specific information as opposed to the manner in which he behaves on Twitter. Furthermore, it is quite interesting to point out the fact that those who have received the Prize in prior years have done significantly less than Trump. As noted above, Barack Obama did very little to win the Prize.
