Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, has nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize after the administration helped facilitate a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE):
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
He then savaged Obama…
Tybring-Gjedde, who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to NATO , told Fox News. “I’m not a big Trump supporter. The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have actually received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”
Tybring-Gjedde wrote in his nomination: “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 mentioned 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.”
The letter also referenced Trump’s moves to withdraw U.S. soldiers from the Middle East, saying that Trump is the first U.S. president in 40 years to not start a war or drag the U.S. into an international conflict.
The Nobel Prize is awarded by Swedish and Norwegian institutions every year for a number of scientific, literary and political achievements. Obama was infamously handed one due only to his celebrity in 2009 — in a move that was widely ridiculed (except by liberals) and likely damaged the reputation of the Committee.
On Twitter this morning, horrified Democrats awoke to the term “Unlike Obama” trending #1 on the social media platform:
And the Tweets against Obama were brutal — and so well-deserved…
With each passing day the stain on America which is the “Obama Legacy” is steadily and gloriously erased by President Donald John Trump.
