Trump earned Nobel nominations, says pundit

US, UAE, Israel & Bahrain flagsIn the space of just a few days, those who vociferously oppose President Donald Trump have seen the object of their scorn nominated not once, but twice for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize – and in the middle of a presidential election campaign no less.

Trump-haters could not have been happy last week when Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, nominated the president for his successful work on an Israeli peace deal with the United Arab Emirates. "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," the parliament member told Fox News at the time.

Colorado radio talk-show host Jeff Crank says the president has been a foreign policy wunderkind.

"This is a president who has had some amazing foreign policy successes – he's withdrawn and pulled back forces from Iraq, he's pulled back forces from Afghanistan. He wants to end these endless wars," he shares.

Now the "never-Trumpers," as they've come to be known, could be on the verge of panic after Magnus Jacobsson, a Swedish member of parliament, early on Friday nominated Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize as well – this one for his work securing peace between Kosovo and Serbia.

Crank says Trump's efforts in the Middle East and elsewhere don't fit the narrative of Trump's bashers, but it does fit reality.

"In the four years that he has been in office, I think from a foreign policy standpoint he's done far more for peace – and we haven't even mentioned the work that he's done with North Korea," Crank notes.

And the latest development wasn't even in the mix: late Friday, two days after Tybring-Gjedde nominated Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize, the Trump administration announced another historic Middle East agreement when Bahrain agreed to normalize ties with Israel.

Other Arab nations believed to be on the cusp of fully recognizing Israel include Oman and Sudan; Saudi Arabia, the regional power player among Arab nations, has tacitly blessed the deals thus far but isn't expected to move as quickly, says The Associated Press.

The signing of the agreements between Israel and the UAE and between Israel and Bahrain are to take place on Tuesday, September 15. The winner of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize will not be announced until October 2021.
