Former President Donald Trump is deserving of acknowledgment for his efforts in brokering the 2020 Abraham Accords, which aimed to bring peace to the Middle East. However, it is highly unlikely that he will receive formal recognition for this achievement.
Despite this near-certain denial, it should not trouble him in the slightest. Fox News recently reported that Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney of New York has nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize, highlighting his contributions to fostering peace in the region.
“Donald Trump was instrumental in facilitating the first new peace agreements in the Middle East in almost 30 years,” Tenney said.
“For decades, bureaucrats, foreign policy ‘professionals’, and international organizations insisted that additional Middle East peace agreements were impossible without a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. President Trump proved that to be false.”
If the mere nomination fails to cause liberals to become extremely upset (which has occurred in the past), then Tenney’s criticism of the foreign-policy establishment is sure to achieve that effect.
Undoubtedly, it is quite satisfying to imagine pompous bureaucrats losing their composure. Nevertheless, Tenney’s remark unequivocally establishes that the former president is truly deserving of the recognition.
“The valiant efforts by President Trump in creating the Abraham Accords were unprecedented and continue to go unrecognized by the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, underscoring the need for his nomination today,” she wrote.
Moreover, the current situation necessitates it. In fact, the striking disparity between the relatively stable Trump era, which witnessed the defeat of the Islamic State group, and the prevailing global disorder under President Joe Biden, constantly overwhelms us.
“Now more than ever, when Joe Biden’s weak leadership on the international stage is threatening our country’s safety and security, we must recognize Trump for his strong leadership and his efforts to achieve world peace. I am honored to nominate former President Donald Trump today and am eager for him to receive the recognition he deserves,” Tenney wrote.
The ex-president has previously been nominated for the award, with the nominations originating from esteemed political figures in Norway, Sweden, and Australia.
On the social media platform X, the announcement of Tuesday’s nomination garnered positive responses. However, it also sparked doubt regarding the likelihood of justice being served.
As an example, a conservative account boasting over 112K followers cynically implied that the Nobel Committee might bestow the award upon the current president, who is often associated with warmongering.
“President Trump should win the Nobel Peace Prize — but they’ll probably give it to Joe Biden because the system is rigged,” Szypula tweeted.
President Trump has been nominated by @RepTenney for a Nobel Peace Prize over his historic Abraham Accords, which he signed while in office.
