Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by New York Republican Rep....
Donald Trump has once again been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, this time by Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY), who cited the former president’s work on the landmark Abraham Accords in her recommendation for the high honor.
“Donald Trump was instrumental in facilitating the first new peace agreements in the Middle East in almost 30 years,” Tenney said in a statement Tuesday. “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.”
The accords — a series of groundbreaking normalization agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Morocco and Bahrain — were among Trump’s most significant foreign-policy achievements in his only term in office.
“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,” Tenney argued.

Upstate New York’s 24th Congressional District representative went on to contrast Trump with President Biden, accusing 81-year-old commander in chief of “weak leadership.”
“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,” Tenney said.
“I am honored to nominate former President Donald Trump today and am eager for him to receive the recognition he deserves.”

Trump, 77, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize several times prior to Tenney’s recommendation.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and former chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, nominated Trump for the prize in 2020, also for his work on the Abraham Accords.
Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish Parliament, also nominated the 45th president in 2020 for brokering a historic peace deal between Serbia and breakaway republic Kosovo.
Australian law professor David Flint nominated Trump, again in 2020, for instituting a foreign policy philosophy known as the “Trump Doctrine, which the professor argued has kept the US out of “endless wars.”
Finland’s Laura Huhtasaari, a European Parliament representative and a member of the far-right Finns Party, nominated Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize on similar grounds.
The winner of the prize will be announced in October.
