    The ex-president reflects on winning the award in his new memoir Former President Barack Obama was taken aback when he found out he was being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, asking "For what?" Details of the moment, along with tales of his political career, are outlined in his new book “A Promised Land," which was released on Tuesday. Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 from the Norwegian Nobel Committee for his "extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people," amidst the backdrop of the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He jokes in the book that...

    Donald Trump didn’t win a Nobel Prize this year — but already he’s been nominated for one in 2021, thanks to a right-wing Finnish politician who cites the president’s “endeavors to end the era of endless wars.” Finland’s Laura Huhtasaari, a European Parliament representative and a member of the far-right Finns Party, nominated the president for the 2021 Peace Prize after Trump was snubbed from this year’s honors. Trump’s nomination is “in recognition of his endeavors to end the era of endless wars, construct peace by encouraging conflicting parties for dialogue and negotiations, as well as underpin internal cohesion and...

    The Nobel Committee announced Friday morning that the 2020 Peace Prize was awarded to the World Food Program, a United Nations agency, for its efforts during the pandemic to combat global hunger, laying the foundations for peace in war-torn countries. “In the face of the pandemic, the World Food Program has demonstrated an impressive ability to intensify its efforts,” Berit Reiss-Andersen, the chair of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, said in Oslo while announcing the prize. “The combination of violent conflict and the pandemic has led to a dramatic rise in the number of people living on the brink of starvation."...

    A group of Australian law professors have given President Trump his third Nobel Peace Prize nomination for his commitment to ending foreign wars. "The Trump Doctrine is something extraordinary, as so many things that Donald Trump does," law professor David Flint explained on Sky News. "He is guided by two things, which seem to be absent from so many politicians. He has firstly common sense and he is only guided by a national interest, and therefore, in our circumstances, an interest in the Western alliance. What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he...

    Eminent law professor David Flint is among four Australian law professors who are nominating US President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize on the basis of the “Trump Doctrine”. Only members of a national parliament or law professors are able to nominate others for the Nobel Peace Prize with President Trump already receiving two nominations for his promotion of peace in the Middle-East.
  • Trump deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for Israel-Bahrain-UAE deal. It's more than Obama did.

    The last American president to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was honored less for something tangible he had achieved, and more for who he was and what he represented. President Barack Obama, the Nobel committee declared in 2009, has “created a new climate in international politics.” If President Donald Trump is not awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, it would be reasonable to suspect that the reason is similar. Trump also created a “new climate in international politics,” just in a way that’s much less appealing to the judges in Scandinavia. So maybe his chances of receiving the prize...

    Reuters is pushing an insane idea that eco-extremist activist Greta Thunberg could get the Nobel Peace Prize. In a story headlined, “A Nobel for Thunberg? In the age of climate change and virus, it is possible,” Reuters’ Gwladys Fouche spouted off that “[t]his year’s Nobel Peace Prize could go to green campaigner Greta Thunberg and the Fridays for Future movement to highlight the link between environmental damage and the threat to peace and security, some experts say.”

    President Donald Trump expects “seven or eight or nine” additional Arab states to sign peace agreements with Israel in the near future, including Saudi Arabia, he announced Tuesday during a White House ceremony. Trump made the comments after formally signing peace agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain. Known as the Abraham Accords, Trump and its other signatories hope it heralds “a new dawn for peace in the Middle East.” Trump also said that he spoke with the King of Saudi Arabia and expects the country to join the agreement “at the right time,” according Agence France...
  • Trump Deserves Higher Honor Than Nobel Prize

    For over one hundred years, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded. In that time, this honor has been viewed as the ultimate prize for any political leader. Recipients are supposed to be great diplomats who have brokered historic peace agreements. In contrast, the recipients are often left-wing politicians who have a suitable political agenda for the five-person Nobel Peace Prize committee. Despite their efforts to end the plague of communism in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, neither Pope John Paul II nor Ronald Reagan received the Nobel Peace Prize. Instead, it was awarded to Mikhail Gorbachev, a communist...

    A nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize is far from a guarantee that Donald Trump will become the laureate in Norway, a country generally chilly to his cause. A member of parliament for the Norwegian populist right-wing, anti-immigration Progress Party, said on Wednesday he had nominated Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The lawmaker, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, cited Trump’s role in brokering an agreement normalizing relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Together with another politician, Tybring-Gjedde has already nominated Trump for the Nobel in 2018 for his rapprochement with North Korea. That reconciliation is now in limbo....

    The Atlantic magazine raised eyebrows on Friday when it published a piece calling for the abolition of the Nobel Peace Prize after President Trump was nominated for the prestigious honor. The president's name was submitted for the 2021 prize by Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde, who cited Trump's role in brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Trump has since earned a second nomination from Swedish lawmaker Magnus Jacobsson for overseeing an economic deal between Kosovo and Serbia. The nominations, however, apparently didn't sit well with the liberal magazine, which declared Friday that "peace had its...

    “Horror is the right word…among people in the national security complex there is a sense of horror about the way he (President Trump) acts, behaves and talks. So I fully expect much more reporting to come out on this.” (Jeffrey Goldberg, CNN, September 6.)  “I was also anxious to meet the great man…a close reading of the human rights literature suggests to me that the leadership of Cuba is not morally comparable to the leadership of Zimbabwe, Burma, Iran, Syria, Libya, North Korea, Eritrea, Venezuela….I judge his (Fidel Castro’s) revolution against what it replaced, namely, the thugocracy of Batista, who...

    As Leah reported this morning, President Trump has officially been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize after brokering a major peace and normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. President Trump will hold an event with leaders from both countries at the White House on September 15. "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,"...

    US President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. The nomination came from right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde and relates to the ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and 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,’ Tybring-Gjedde said to Fox News. He said in his nomination letter: ‘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...
