New York Representative Claudia Tenney Puts Forward Trump’s Nomination for Nobel Peace Prize

Shortly following the death of three U.S. soldiers at the hands of Iranian proxies, Representative Claudia Tenney from New York, a Republican, has proposed former President Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize, highlighting his role in the “historic” Abraham Accords treaty.

“Donald Trump was instrumental in facilitating the first new peace agreements in the Middle East in almost 30 years,” Tenney told Fox News Digital in a statement. “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.”

While the Nobel Peace Prize recognized the peace accord between Israel and Egypt in 1978 and the Oslo Accords in 1994, Representative Tenney highlighted that there has been no acknowledgment for Trump’s involvement in facilitating an agreement between Israel and four Arab neighbors. This agreement aims to normalize diplomatic and economic relations between the nations.

“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. 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 said.

Despite being the leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, Trump, during his presidency, did not secure the Nobel Peace Prize despite multiple nominations for his role in the Abraham Accords peace agreement.

In 2020, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, initially nominated Trump, praising his efforts in resolving global conflicts. Later, Laura Huhtasaari, an MEP from the Swedish Finns Party, nominated him for the 2021 prize, citing his endeavors to end endless wars and promote peace through dialogue. The third nomination came from a group of Australian lawmakers in September 2020, following Trump’s involvement in facilitating economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
