President Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian Lawmakers
Fortune ^ | 06/13/2018

U.S. President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in reaching an agreement to work toward de-nuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

The U.S leader was nominated by two members of Norway’s governing Progress Party, according to state broadcaster NRK. The deadline for this year’s prize passed in January, so this nomination would make him eligible for next year. It is unclear whether he was nominated for this year’s prize.

Nominations for the world’s most coveted prize are open to lawmakers, academics and researchers from around the world. The Nobel Committee in Oslo typically receives hundreds of nominations each year, and past candidates have also included Russian President Vladimir Putin and Former Cuban leader Fidel Castro. A record 330 people were nominated this year.

While the Norwegian Nobel committee is appointed by parliament, it’s decisions are independent. Trump was nominated by two right-wing members of Norway’s Progress Party, which advocates for limited immigration and lower taxes.

A little buttering up to get the American troops they would like stationed there?

He should graciously decline citing the meaningless gesture carries no significance any longer based on recent “awardees”. I suppose even calling it the adult equivalent of “everybody gets a trophy award”.

Anyone at least slightly queasy that the commie wing of Congress is so gung-ho about these talks with NoKo? I guess politics do make strange bedfellows.

Most coveted? Not since 2009. Since then it means less than a participation trophy.

There is no way the ultra ultra left wing Nobel Committee will give Trump a Peace Prize. But it’s nice to imagine.

Norway wants US Marines stationed near their Russian border. I guess they’re willing to choke down a Peace Prize for Trump to secure that.

Norway is a member of NATO yes, but as part of its membership, no foreign troops are allowed to be permanently stationed in Norway. That means lots of TDYs.

George C. Scott? Naw. Just send Rodman to accept the award. But then these folks awarded it to Arafat. How Obama won is reason enough for Trump to decline.

Hussein Obama and Yasir Arafat to name two.

Waiting to see how the local media handles this. Suppress it, or turn it into a negative?

Well now, they should have asked the Democrats in the U. S. first!!!!

The Democrats in the U. S. look more bankrupt each and every day. And frankly I don’t know how they do it, but they manage.
