Trump sure deserves the Nobel Peace Prize
US President Donald Trump said he deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, but does not expect to receive it, reports RIA News.
“As for me, I'll probably never get it (Nobel Peace Prize), but that's okay. They gave it to (ex-US President Barack) Obama, and he didn't even know why, ”Trump said, answering questions from reporters at the White House.
The head of the White House was asked about what specific agreements he expects to reach during negotiations with DPRK leader Kim Jong-un in Vietnam. Among his merits, Trump listed building relations with the DPRK and personally with its leader Kim Jong-un, preventing the death of civilians in Idlib.
According to Trump, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe confessed to him that he had nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. “He said that on behalf of Japan, I nominated you and ask them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize,” the American leader said.
The idea of nominating Donald Trump for the Nobel Prize was widely discussed by his supporters in the spring of 2018. In May 2018 of the year congressional republican group nominated trump on the Nobel Peace Prize. In a letter sent by lawmakers to the Nobel Committee, Donald Trump "worked tirelessly trying to put maximum pressure on North Korea, forcing it to stop the illegal military program and achieve peace in the region." Then Trump said the following:
“Everyone thinks that I deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, but I would never say that.” In fact, the only reward I want is victory for the whole world. ” declared trump at a government meeting at the White House.
The right to nominate candidates for the prize is held by heads of state, members of governments and legislative assemblies. In the past, four US presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize: Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.
Trump's predecessor, the 44th Democrat President of the United States, Barack Obama, was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009. Members of the Nobel Committee considered Obama's efforts to "strengthen international diplomacy and people-to-people cooperation" worthy of the award.
Later, the former director of the Nobel Institute in Norway, Gail Lundestad, who held this post for 25 years, believes that awarding Barack Obama the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 "in advance" was a mistake. In his book of memoirs, Lundestad notes that this award was planned as an incentive for President Obama’s future accomplishments in world peace.
But the decision taken by the Nobel Committee, as he notes, caused not only a wave of criticism from those who believed that Obama had not yet done anything to receive such a high award, but also surprised even Obama himself.
