Iran is closer to nukes now than they were when he came in. Same with NK.

He’s guaranteed war, just not on his watch.

Notice that among Conservatives all of a sudden Nobel Peace Prizes will become significant again... just because Trump was nominated for one.

Naaaah. He won't win it. They only ultimately give it to left wingers, no matter how undeserving ( see: Obama.
We all know Trump has a far, far better record of keeping us out of war than Obama when he was given it.

Why not? Nobama got one just for showing up.

Obama did more than show up. He talked.

And then he proceeded to get us mired in more war.

Such is the value of the prize: It's not what you do...it's what you say.

Actually, the President was nominated for something that actually happened in the Real World.

The prize is only a prize. The significance is what motivated the nomination.

The motivation for some previous Peace Prizes had nothing to do with the real world, actual events or peace.

Well, in fairness, it takes two sides to stage a good war.

Obama hiding under the bed wetting his pants is hardly a warlike action.

To a diplomat, talking is the goal.

Diplomats are strangely disengaged from what the rest of regard as real world accomplishment.

Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize following Israel-UAE accord.

President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for helping broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, according to a report.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, submitted the nomination, Fox News reported.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, told Fox News.

In his letter to the Nobel Committee, Tybring-Gjedde wrote that the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between the two nations.

“As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game-changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he wrote, Fox News reported.

Would not put too much into this. He has been nominated by a person in the party that Brevik the terrorist supported... that explains why and so on.

I don’t know why I would need to compare Trump’s real failure against an imagined failure you just made up.

I do not.

Trump has increased our presence in the ME with more troops, more arms to Yemen and Saudi Arabia. He has promoted NK communist dictator Kim to the world stage other US presidents and free nation leaders have refused to do while Kim improves on his nuclear weapon program. Trump has gotten rid of the Iran agreement that has now motivated them towards nuclear arms capability. He defended the Saudi crown prince from the truth of the fact the prince was the instigator of the murder and dismemberment of US resident and journalist Khashoggi, confirmed by US intelligence. He is now defending Putin against the world condemnation for his role in killing-off his political opposition. Yeah, I can see where the RW/conservatives/this OP poster would see all the above qualifies Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize. I’m sure they have evidence of even more facts that I’ve listed to support such a prize.

The same can be said about politicians.

I'm glad Trump isn't a politician...even if it prevents him from getting the prize.

It's unlikely that the UAE was the only "egg in the basket" being pursued to create a lasting and stable Mid-East Peace.

Wouldn't it be delightful if a few more Arab-Muslim States engaged in peace deals with Israel?

EVERYTHING in the Real World undermines the fantasies put forward by the Fake News Media and yet the Democrat-Socialist Drones keep parroting all of the lies and hate.

On NBC Nightly News last night, the reporter solemnly pronounced that the drug companies working on the Covid vaccine would NOT bow to pressure from the White House.

I read the statement they signed. No mention of the "White House" at all. No mention of "Trump". In truth, they say they will follow the guidance provided by the FDA.

ANOTHER lie from NBC News! The frequency of lies from the Fake news Media is picking up. It's getting to be more sad than funny.

We very well might find a few more Arab-Muslim states engaging in peace deals with Israel. The Arab League isn't kowtowing to the Palestinian Authority on this one.

Pete Buttigieg said it best in regards to the UAE/Israel deal:

"Anything that adds peace or stability to the region, we shouldn't be afraid to say that's good news."

It's getting more interesting every day.

It's too bad the propagandists in our media are peddling lies rather than reporting what is actually happening.

From you article, this pull quote seems to indicate ANOTHER Arab state is about to normalize relations with Israel:

<snip>
An Arab League condemnation of the Israel-UAE deal seemed unlikely from the start, sinc several Arab states such as Egypt and Bahrain have expressed public or tacit support for the deal.
<snip>

Currently, Bahrain has NOT normalized relations. I might be seeing things that aren't there, but this FEELS like a signal of things to come.

Maybe China can revive the Confucius Peace Prize and they give Trumpy that.
