For the second time, President Donald J. Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Trump was nominated to receive the award by Norwegian MP and chairman to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly Christian Tybring-Gjedde. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said on Fox News.
Trump was instrumental in the successful conclusion of a recent peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel. Other notable achievements of the President in promoting peace include the historic meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, and, as cited by Tybring-Gjedde, 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.”
Tybring-Gjedde also said, “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.”
