President Trump received yet another Nobel Peace Prize nomination, his fourth, for his "endeavors to end the era of endless wars, construct peace ... as well as underpin internal cohesion and stability of his country."
"It is hard to imagine a president of the United States from the last decades, or a current head of state, who would deserve more the Committee's recognition in 2021 than President Trump for his effort to build peace in the world," said Laura Huhtasaari, the Finnish member of the European Parliament that wrote the nomination letter.
Huhtasaari noted four main things Trump has done in his presidential term:
- "served almost a complete presidential term without starting a new war"
- "withdrawing thousands of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan"
- "established full diplomatic relations between Israel ... the United Arab Emirates ... and Bahrain"
- "maintained national cohesion and secured law and order by taking a strong stand against detrimental social movements"
