Nomination of Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize

Ex-President Trump receives a Nobel Peace Prize nomination for his efforts in advancing the Abraham Accords treaty in the Middle East. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) revealed this development on Tuesday, highlighting the historic agreement on September 15, 2020, fostering peace and diplomatic relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain.

Subsequently, additional Arab and Muslim nations, such as Sudan, Morocco, and Kosovo, joined the accord in the following weeks.

“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 has acknowledged historical peace accords like the 1978 Israel-Egypt agreement and the 1994 Oslo Accords, Claudia Tenney pointed out the absence of recognition for Donald Trump’s efforts in facilitating an agreement between Israel and four Arab neighbors, fostering normalization in diplomatic and economic relations.

Notably, former President Barack Obama received the prize in 2009 for his efforts in strengthening international diplomacy, leaving Trump’s supporters eager to address this perceived snub.

In a conversation with Breitbart News three weeks ago, Trump mentioned that several nations, potentially even Iran, were close to joining the Abraham Accords. However, the shift in approach by President Joe Biden, reverting to a previously unsuccessful Middle East strategy, thwarted these efforts and eroded any advancements.

Throughout Biden’s presidency, not a single country has joined the Abraham Accords. The current administration has opted to overlook Trump’s contributions to Middle East peace and security.

Individuals in leadership positions, political figures, foreign policy institutions, and previous Nobel Prize laureates are eligible to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Committee, consisting of five members appointed by the Norwegian Parliament, is responsible for selecting the winner from the submitted nominations.

Donald Trump, the leading contender for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, has received nominations in the past.
