Why should Barack Obama get the Nobel Peace Prize for doing nothing and then Trump be ignored when North Korea is making unprecedented moves toward peace?
I suppose, if the whole Korean deal gets stopped, then the Nobel Peace Prize should go to someone else in 2019. But remember, Barack Obama “won” the prize for merely being President! Donald Trump has already shown a great deal more initiative.
The best reason for denying Donald Trump the Nobel Peace Prize is that it is a worthless establishment propaganda device. Remember, the next year the Nobel Commmittee gave the peace prize to the entire E.U.!
But the real reason the President won’t be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize is that he is an outsider. The political class has been unable to do anything about North Korea. They claimed to be the best and brightest. Now this uncouth, reality TV star, real estate speculator is solving the problem that they claimed was insoluble. And he did it partly by boasting and mocking on Twitter! If the establishment didn’t alread hate Trump, then they would hate him for bringing North Korea to the bargaining table. He demonstrates their incompetence!
ZeroHedge reports, “Trump Formally Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize.”
A group of 18 GOP lawmakers led by Rep. Luke Messer of Indiana […], have signed a letter formally nominating President Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
The letter is addressed to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, and states that President Trump has worked “tirelessly to apply maximum pressure to North Korea to end its illicit weapons programs and bring peace to the region.”
“His Administration successfully united the international community, including China, to impose one of the most successful international sanctions regimes in history,” the letter says.[…]
“Although North Korea has evaded demands from the international community to cease its aggression for decades, President Trump’s peace through strength policies are working and bringing peace to the Korean peninsula,” the letter reads. “We can think of no one more deserving of the Committee’s recognition in 2019 than President Trump for his tireless work to bring peace to our world.”
“The only reason the North Korean dictator is coming to the table is because President Trump has stared him down and shown him that we have a leader in America who means business and who has changed the dynamic in major ways,” Rep. Messer told Fox News. “That’s why I think he has to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize.”
