Summary of all Five Nobel Peace Prize Nominations for President Donald Trump
To date, since 2018, President Trump has deservedly received five nominations overall for the Nobel Peace Prize. The 2019 prize was awarded to Prime Minister of Ethiopia Abiy Ahmed Ali and the 2020 prize to the World Food Bank. As per schedule, the 2021 award will be announced in October of 2021.
Trump’s 5th Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
Trump’s fifth nomination came Monday, October 26, 2020, recognizing him “for deterring nuclear war with North Korea, through summitry de-escalating North Korea’s nuclear threats, and for his Executive Order on Coordinating National Resilience to Electromagnetic Pulses that pioneers protecting electronic civilization from the existential threat posed by solar superstorms, nuclear and non-nuclear EMP weapons.”
Trump’s 4th Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
Laura Huhtasaari gave President Trump his forth nomination for Trump’s efforts to “build peace in the world’ and called for him to receive the honor for his “endeavors to end the era of endless wars, construct peace … as well as underpin internal cohesion and stability of his country.”
Trump’s 3rd Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
President Trump’s third Nobel Peace Prize nomination came in late September for helping broker relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). According to Professor David Flint, President Trump went “ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense. He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together.”
Flint tied President Trump’s peace deal and America First foreign policy to the ‘Trump Doctrine’: “What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided he would no longer have America in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans.”
Trump’s 2nd Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
On September 11, 2020, Trump was nominated for second Nobel Peace Prize following Serbia-Kosovo deal. Trump is being recognized for brokering a “historic peace deal between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo” a week prior
Trump’s 1st Nobel Peace Prize Nomination
Christian Tybring-Gjedde gave President Trump his first Nobel Peace Prize nomination in 2018 for efforts to “bring reconciliation between North and South Korea.”
If President Donald Trump wins the Nobel Peace Prize, he “would be the fifth US president to win, following Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, Woodrow Wilson in 1920, Jimmy Carter in 2002 and Barack Obama in 2009.” Trump is obviously well-deserving of the prestigious award, many times over, as he is ending perpetual wars unlike his predecessors who started them. This is in sharp contrast with Barack Obama who received a Nobel prize for no reason at all and waged endless wars in the Middle East and promoted instability at home in the United States.
