Suggesting reporters who have received Nobel Prizes for their work on “Russia, Russia, Russia” be stripped of those awards, the president misspelled Nobel as “ Noble ” and seemed to be confusing the Nobel Prize with the Pulitzer Prize , an award actually given to journalists.

Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize by House Republicans, who believe his threats While the move was welcomed by a number of US politicians, who seem to agree Trump 's role was crucial in Trump ’s Nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize Was Apparently Forged.

"And I'm talking about normal NBC, not MSDNC, MSDNC is the worst, but so I turn on NBC with Lester Holt, another beauty, and they start with a hurricane, and then they went to something, and something else, and I'm saying, 'First Lady, this is getting a little embarrassing, with 20 minutes into a half hour show, they haven't mentioned the Nobel Peace Prize.'

"And then it went through the whole show and they never mentioned. And then I got nominated for a second one and they never mentioned. And when Barack Obama, Barack Hussein Obama, got nominated, no when Barack Hussein Obama got nominated, he didn't know why he was nominated. It was like right at the very beginning. He didn't do anything. He did nothing! And he got nominated. It was the biggest story I've ever seen. But that's OK. In the meantime, we're president, and they're not, right? We, we."

'President Donald Trump receives a Nobel Peace Prize !' - I suppose it could happen. But then again, the Nobel Peace Prize has over the years celebrated some rather dubious nominees, with No matter, Kissinger accepted his peace prize . While he still has to guard against arrest when he travels

Christian Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News: “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other peace prize The Nobel peace prize was awarded to Barack Obama in 2009 for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation

What's obvious from that rant is that Trump doesn't seem to grasp that he hasn't WON the Nobel Peace Prize. He's just been nominated for it. He and 210 other people. And 107 organizations.

See, being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize is a LOT different than actually winning it. Mostly because a whole lot of people can nominate you to be in the running.

Here's who can put forward someone for the Peace Prize, according to the Nobel website:

"These nominations will be submitted by members of national assemblies, governments, and international courts of law; university chancellors, professors of social science, history, philosophy, law and theology; leaders of peace research institutes and institutes of foreign affairs; previous Nobel Peace Prize Laureates; board members of organizations that have received the Nobel Peace Prize; present and past members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; and former advisers of the Norwegian Nobel Institute."

Putin joins Trump as Nobel Peace Prize candidate: report

  Putin joins Trump as Nobel Peace Prize candidate: report Vladimir Putin joins President Trump as 2021 Nobel Peace Prize nominee: reportAccording to Newsweek, the state-owned Russian news agency Tass made the announcement and insisted the Russian government wasn’t responsible for nominating its own strongman.

And he has already said that U.S. troops should leave Syria. He has no interest in starting a war with Iran But when it comes to the Iran nuclear deal, which was a real deal, what he seems to want is, first And, secondly, to be on the world stage, making a deal that would earn him the Nobel Peace

When Donald Trump took the presidential oath of office 16 months ago, he promised ‘the hour of action’ had arrived. For all his many faults and foibles, no one could accuse the property That has led some Republicans, and South Korea’s President, to suggest Trump wins the Nobel Peace Prize .

Which is a lot of different people!

In Trump's case, he was nominated by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a far-right Norwegian lawmaker, for his "groundbreaking cooperation agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel." It's the second time Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Trump for the prize. The first time was in 2018 for the "huge and important step in the direction of the disarmament, peace and reconciliation between North and South Korea." And it's the third time Trump has been nominated; he was nominated in 2016 by a person who preferred to remain anonymous for "vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS, nuclear Iran and Communist China."

So then, the comparison between someone who has won the Nobel Peace Prize (as Obama did in 2009) and someone who has been nominated for the prize is an apples and oranges sort of thing. (That fact is separate from the debate as to whether President Obama, who had just begun his first term in office, was a deserving recipient of the prize. That's a worthwhile conversation!)

Iran's Missiles are the Real Threat | Opinion

  Iran's Missiles are the Real Threat | Opinion It is important that the U.S. and its allies focus on the ballistic missile threat and see the nuclear program as part of a wider weapons system, instead of allowing Iran to pretend that each part of its weapons program is independent.Iran has been building ballistic missiles for many years—reverse engineering components, building on Russian or Chinese models and even working with North Korea to increase the range and precision of the rockets. When Washington announced new sanctions on Iran in late September, a U.S. official familiar with the sanctions said that Iran had resumed work with North Korea on long-range missiles.

If the Nobel Peace Prize really is about " peace ," guess who wins the next one hands down? Even the lefties are admitting it. This must give the Yes, that Donald Trump , the one they have been hating for all these years. And the war Trump ended had been rising to dangerous levels when he stopped it.

The news coverage of an American president winning the Peace Prize would then, obviously, be different than the coverage of an American president merely being nominated for the prize. (Remember that there is one winner and, in the case of the 2021 award, 318 nominees.)

Trump seems to not understand the distinction, or chooses not to understand because either a) in his mind he has already won or b) it simply fits his convenient -- though oft-disproven -- narrative that the media is biased against him.

This is not the first time Trump has expressed confusion about how the Peace Prize works or suspicion about how they decide who wins.

"I think I'm going to get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things, if they gave it out fairly, which they don't," Trump said at the United Nations in 2019.

Which, well, OK.
