Nominations mean next to nothing and given some of the winners over the past few decades even winning doesn't mean much. Donald Trump did literally nothing to facilitate this deal.

Peace in the middle east. If anyone deserves a Nobel it is Donald Trump. Unlike Obama, Trump actually earned it.

How much direct input do you think Trump had on the project?
I'm thinking bugger all and he just swooped in at the last second to claim all the credit for the hard work of diplomats over years and possibly decades of talks.

What peace? You have to have conflict before you can establish peace. When was the UAE ever at war with Israel; and when was re-establishing diplomatic relations (which is all this is), deserving of a Nobel peace prize?
Peace in the Middle East? When did that happen, by the way?

Did you ever ask why Obama got a Nobel?

Nope, but that's mainly because I didn't give a **** whether he got one or not.
Did he deserve it? I have no idea.

Also, what does Obama getting one have to do with Trump?
I'm saying Trump most likely had bugger all input in the deal that he's been nominated for other than to step in at the last second and sign a bit of paper.

He certainly didn't have the same input for example as the negotiators of the Irish peace process who got the prize.

Please provide evidence of peace in the middle east from this deal.

I was playing paintball in Dubai (UAE) in 2000. Its not a hostile country. Its one of the least hostile countries there.

Trump didn't do anything.

Good call about the Good Friday agreement. Decades of Republican terrorism (financed to a large extent by Americans), wiped out.

Great news!

Of course, the politically correct Nobel committee will refuse to award the Prize to him. (Remember how it gave the Prize to an American president who had barely been inaugurated!)

Darn it! I wish he would win the Prize for two reasons:

1. He deserves it.

2. It would really, really, really ruin his enemies' day.

Not surprised.

I wouldn’t have been surprised if the no,inaction was part of the deal.

But, instead, it was the work of a far right wing Norwegian politician. The same sort of people who routinely no,/i ate certain American political crackpots.

Well, he has been the only President to move the needle a bit in the Middle East.

Have a nice day!

Only Moving a needle sounds accurate Parser(LOL)
