The president announced the agreement in August following the full normalizing of relations between the countries.
“HUGE breakthrough today! Historic Peace Agreement between our two GREAT friends, Israel and the United Arab Emirates!”
Now Trump has received recognition for this breakthrough with the Nobel Prize nomination that was submitted by Norwegian Parliament member Christian Tybring-Gjedde who hailed the leader of the free world who “has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, lauded Trump for his efforts toward resolving protracted conflicts worldwide.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of Parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News in an exclusive interview.
Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “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 wrote.
Also cited in the letter was the president’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.”
Tybring-Gjedde, further, praised Trump for withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East. “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 wrote.
The nomination is a shot at Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama who was awarded the Nobel Prize shortly after he took office despite his lack of accomplishments that would serve to qualify him for the honor.
Trump has since spent four years cleaning up Obama’s messes in the region that was established during his disastrous two-term presidency including the destabilization of Libya, the Arab Spring, and the rise of ISIS.
The same media that covered for Obama will do everything that they can to diminish the nomination but there should be no argument that President Trump has done more to promote peace than Obama, the Bushes, or the Clinton’s.
