It was not widely covered by the mainstream news but some may remember President Trump’s peacemaking efforts that recently took place in the Middle East. He brokered an agreement with the United Arab Emirates and Israel. This was without precedent and now he may receive the ultimate prize because of all of his tireless efforts.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, submitted the nomination for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. He has made huge strides when it comes to solving various conflicts around the world. “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” said Christian.
He shared these insights during an exclusive interview with Fox News. As a four Parliament member who has also spent time serving as a chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, he is qualified to make these distinctions. Tybring-Gjedde praises the active role that the Trump administration has taken when it comes to handling difficult situations.
“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 says. Tybring-Gjedde went on to point out 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,” he writes. All of this goes against the image that the American media has created of Donald Trump.
This is not the first time that Tybring-Gdedde has submitted such a nomination on Trump’s behalf. He was nominated by the same man back in 2018. Christian was so impressed by the Singapore summit that took place between Kim Jong-Un and the president, he had no choice but to show his appreciation. Meanwhile, the president can’t get any appreciation on his own side of the pond.
It’s taken a foreign dignitary to recognize his contributions and that is simply too bad. The nomination was not given because this man is looking to gain favor. He is simply telling it like it is. “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 received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing,” he concluded.
It’s hard to argue with that assessment, even if you are someone who considers themselves to be a Trump supporter. When Barack Obama took him a Noble Peace Prize 11 years ago, no one seemed to bat an eye. Ask the children who were attacked by his drone strikes if they think he is such a peaceful guy.
The mere idea that Trump would even be nominated will be enough to send the mainstream news outlets into a total tizzy. The cruel irony of the whole situation is that one of the loudest critics of the Obama nomination was none other than, you guessed it, Donald Trump. Everything has a way of coming full circle, doesn’t it?
We will have to wait until October of next year to find out if the liberals are going to be all upset or not. The recipient of the award will not be chosen until then. It probably won’t be long before Barack himself feels the need to weigh in on the situation. He’s definitely had a lot to say lately, even though he didn’t accomplish all that much during his presidential tenure.
