Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for ‘historic’ Middle East policy

Donald Trump is running for the second time in the 2024 US presidential elections

Former US president Donald Trump has been nominated by Republican lawmaker Claudia Tenney for the Nobel Peace Prize, the Independent reported.

In a statement, Tenney said she decided to nominate Trump for his “historic” achievement in brokering the Abraham Accords treaty, which formally normalised relations between the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Israel.

“Donald Trump was instrumental in facilitating the first new peace agreements in the Middle East in almost 30 years.”

She added: “The valiant efforts by Trump in creating the Abraham Accords were unprecedented and continue to go unrecognised by the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, underscoring the need for his nomination today.

“Now more than ever, when Joe Biden’s weak leadership on the international stage is threatening our country’s safety and security, we must recognise Trump for his strong leadership and his efforts to achieve world peace. I am honoured to nominate former president Donald Trump today and am eager for him to receive the recognition he deserves.”

This is Trump’s fourth nomination for the Noble Peace Prize. Earlier, he was nominated for improving relations between North and South Korea, for normalising relations between Serbia and Kosovo and the Abraham Accords.

While the Abraham Accords have been applauded for bringing Israel and the Arab world closer, the historic agreements have also been criticised for failing to produce meaningful solutions for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
