This is not the first time that President Trump has received a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize. While he has yet to take one home, it’s entirely possible that the fourth time is the charm.
This nomination has fallen into the award process for 2021, in case you are wondering. It will be a bit before we are able to learn whether Trump takes the award home or not.
The 2020 Nobel Peace Prize has already been awarded. While Trump received three nominations for the prestigious honor, he was unable to capture the victory.
This was obviously a major let down for all those who were rooting for him at the time. With any luck, he can finally break the dry spell this time around.
The World Food Programme was the winner in 2020. The program received plaudits for their tireless efforts when it comes to fighting world hunger.
Their “contribution to bettering conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas” was also cited when the news came down. “Villagers collect food aid dropped from a World Food Programme plane to a village in Ayod county, South Sudan, in February 2020.
The WFP, a United Nations entity, was created in 1961 and today provides food to over 100 million people a year,” claims CNN. David Beasley is the executive director of the program.
He claims that the award has left him without the ability to properly articulate his feelings. “It’s the first time in my life I’ve actually been speechless, I really can’t believe it,” he told CNN during an appearance on Connect The World.
Beasley also took to Twitter to share his good fortune. “We are deeply humbled to receive the #NobelPeacePrize. This is an incredible recognition of the dedication of the @WFP family, working to end hunger every day in 80+ countries. Thank you @NobelPrize for this incredible honor!” he tweeted.
President Trump was nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize by a Finnish member of the European Parliament. His willingness to remove the United States from various wars has been commended. The nomination was made “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 stability of his country.”
These are the words of Laura Huhtasaari, who is a member of the Finnish right-wing. The Abraham Accords in the Middle East are impressive to her and so is the United States’ track record under his leadership. We have yet to be dragged into any more foreign wars as of late. This is definitely a cause for celebration.
It bears noting that all four of the nominations that Trump has received have come from Europeans. The Democrats are obviously fuming about what has taken place here but that’s to be expected.
When Barack Obama was taking home these types of accolades despite bombing various foreign countries and deporting citizens left and right, we did not see any sort of complaining from the leftists.
It’s almost like the Democrats want all of the credit when things are going well and none of the blame when things are going poorly. They are the first to act as if the world as we know it is ending under Trump’s leadership but that’s not the case at all. He is working hard to put an end to conflicts all over the world. His demeanor is easy to make fun of but the results that he gets are not as easy for us to mock.
If only the left felt the same way! The divisions that are haunting this country are only magnified by the Democrats, who would rather boo and hiss over these nominations.
They should be paying their respects to the man who is making their jobs easier while he is in office but we digress. If and when he is acknowledged for what he has done, we will be the first to say “I told you so!”
