Barack Obama won a Nobel Peace Prize for doing absolutely nothing. In fact, he was nominated for the award almost immediately after he became president when he had literally accomplished absolutely nothing.
He won the award because everyone hated Bush so much and was excited to have the first black president. That’s really undeniable. The first black president was exciting. No doubt. But, come on. Giving him the Nobel prize was just insane especially when you consider the fact he lit the world on fire during the next 8 years and was an absolute disaster when it came to foreign policy.
Flash forward to 2018 and Trump has done more for peace in a year and half than Obama in 8 years. That’s not even remotely an exaggeration. It can’t be emphasized enough how important and historic this North Korea meeting was. Even if it ends up falling apart it was still a fantastic idea that walked us away from the brink of disaster.
Simply put, Trump absolutely deserves the Nobel prize especially following the precedent set by Obama.
Trump was nominated for the award this week.
Will he get it?
