President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on Tuesday by a member of the Norwegian parliament. The Prize has lost much credibility over time, giving the award to vicious terrorists, dictators, clueless politicians like Obama, and neglecting men like Ronald Reagan whose policies ended the Cold War and thus lifted the world from the constant specter of nuclear war.

    But the Nobel Committee, being comprised of those who value PC perception and not achievement, will not give the award to President Trump, as they did not give it to Reagan. But a Norwegian politician is trying just the same.

    "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," said Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian parliament who nominated the president for the Nobel.

    Specifically, the president has wound down wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, he has restored the might of the American military (a force that keeps the peace through the strength of deterrence), and he recently brokered a peace deal between the U.A.E. and Israel. More Arab nations are expected to sign their own deals with Israel now that the 25-year logjam is broken. He has also worked for peace with North Korea and strengthened NATO, an organization that has kept the peace in Europe since 1949.

    Tybring-Gjedde 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."

    He also referenced 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... 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."

    The president is less than confident over his chances of winning the award: "They gave it to Obama. He didn't even know what he got it for. He was there for about 15 seconds and he got the Nobel Prize. He said, 'Oh, what did I get it for?' With me, I probably will never get it."

    But former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has a more upbeat view: "I'm delighted that a Norwegian parliamentarian would nominate President Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. President Obama basically got the Nobel Peace Prize for waking up and they gave it to him at the very beginning of his administration."

    Gingrich said Trump used a "very different approach from the Obama administration" that resulted in "creating a real relationship," not only for the "United Arab Emirates, but also with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and Sudan."

    "I would not be at all surprised to see two or three more countries create a relationship with Israel in the next few months, so this is a remarkable achievement... He just pulled off the first breakthrough in 25 years," Gingrich said. "I think that the scale of the achievement is so great and it so dramatically changes the temperature and the rhythm of the Middle East, particularly if one or two more countries follow on. I think at that point it is very hard to deny Trump the fact that he really would have earned the Nobel Peace Prize by following very strong diplomacy despite many of the so-called experts who deeply opposed it."
