President Donald Trump on Monday, Nov. 2, picked up another nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, after a coalition of 14 conservative European parliamentarians called for the president to receive the honor.
“For his courage and commitment to the cause of peace in the Middle East, the Balkans, and on the Korean Peninsula, we wish to nominate United States President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize,” the coalition led by Sweden Democrats said in a statement, according to Breitbart News.
“In support of America’s global leadership for peace and prosperity under President Donald J. Trump. Our nomination is the largest nomination yet, with 14 parliamentarians from 11 different European nations nominating Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize,” it continued.
The group cited the Abraham Accords—peace deals between Arab Gulf nations and Israel, as well as the president’s efforts to bring peace to the Balkans and the Korean Peninsula.
“Few world leaders have done more to build a better world for the Twenty-First Century. President Trump has shown the world that peace is not only possible, but within reach,” they said in the statement.
President Trump was first nominated by a Norwegian Parliament member for his role in the peace deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
The president received another nomination days later from a Swedish Parliament member for his role in a U.S.-brokered normalization deal between Serbia and Kosovo.
The third nomination for the president was made by a Finish member of the European Parliament “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.”
Israel’s leader, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, on Sunday praised President Trump’s Mideast policies.
“I can only hope that this policy that brings, that isolates Iran and brings the fruits of peace, peace grounded in reality to the people of Israel, to the Arab peoples of the region, I can only hope that this policy will continue in the coming years,” Netanyahu said.
