“Donald Trump is a warmonger who is going to get us into World War III.”
That was a common sentiment among many on the political Left leading up to the 2016 election, and it remains common even today. The president’s political opponents and media critics have portrayed Trump as a trigger-happy cowboy ready to unleash a nuclear bomb on our enemies at the drop of a hat.
Those people clearly weren’t paying attention to President Trump before, during, and after his first campaign for president. He has always been more isolationist than an interventionist. He has always been against needless foreign wars, including the George W. Bush-led American invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Just this week, it was announced that more troops were coming home from Iraq after Trump removed troops from Syria earlier in the year and sought to negotiate an end to the War in Afghanistan with the Taliban. He has worked to broker peace between North Korea and South Korea, and while he has been tough on Iran, he held back from bombing them until it was absolutely necessary to take out Iranian terrorist leader Qasem Soleimani.
Then, within the past few weeks, Trump and his administration helped broker a historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This could be a game-changer for peace in the Middle East. It could create a domino effect in which several other Arab nations make peace with Israel and work together to encircle Iran and suffocate them, making the region a safer place and lessening the odds that more American men and women will be sent into combat in the Middle East. Critics swore this would be impossible when Trump moved the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, but Trump has proved them all wrong.
Finally, President Trump is being recognized for his efforts to make the world a more peaceful place. A member of the Norwegian Parliament has nominated Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his latest efforts in brokering peace between the UAE and Israel.
Fox News reported, “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…”
To top it off, Tybring-Gjedde isn’t even a dyed-in-the-wool Trump supporter. Far from it, in fact. He can see with his own eyes the contributions to world peace that Donald Trump has made, and he couldn’t stand by and allow Trump’s actions to be ignored.
Then, in an epic burn of former President Obama, who essentially received the Nobel Prize for no reason other than simply existing, Tybring-Gjedde said, “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.”
President Trump is greatly underappreciated for his foreign policy successes. It is good to see that he is finally getting some credit for his achievements in world affairs and he absolutely should be strongly considered for a Nobel Peace Prize.
