Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

You probably don’t know why, because this was the most under-reported story of 2020. And I think we all know why. Because the story made President Donald Trump (R-USA) look good.

I’m referring, of course, to the Abraham Accords, which set the framework for peace in the Middle East, between Israel and several Muslim & Arab nations.

Former President Donald Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on Monday morning by an Estonian member of the European Parliament, Jaak Madison.

In a post on social media, Madison said: “In the last 30 years, Donald Trump is the first president of the United States, who during his tenure, has not started a war. Additionally, he signed several peace agreements in the Middle East which have helped provide stability in the region and peace.”

Madison was referring to the Abraham Accords, a joint statement between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States–and later, with Bahrain and other Arab countries.

“We encourage efforts to promote interfaith and intercultural dialogue to advance a culture of peace among the three Abrahamic religions and all humanity,” according to a statement on the State Department’s website. “We believe that the best way to address challenges is through cooperation and dialogue and that developing friendly relations among States advances the interests of lasting peace in the Middle East and around the world.”

Even with the China Virus, this would have been one of the most important stories of the year, if it had happened with any other President. As it was, it was barely reported, and when it was reported, it was in disparaging terms.

But this is a very big deal. Probably the biggest peace deal in my lifetime, as long as President Joe Biden (D-USA) and the Democrats don’t manage to find a way to screw it up.
