National security adviser says Trump 'should be a front-runner for the Nobel Peace Prize'

White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien on Thursday called for President Trump to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize, citing his role in a diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

O’Brien made the case for his boss to get the prestigious honor, which the president himself has previously suggested he deserves, during a White House press briefing.

“It’s really remarkable I think when you step back and take a look at what this president has done on the peace front,” O’Brien said. “And it wouldn’t surprise me — it’ll take some time in this environment — but it wouldn’t surprise me if the president is eventually nominated for a Nobel Prize for this. Today’s work is an example of why he would be rightly considered and should be a front-runner for the Nobel Peace Prize.”

O’Brien showered praise on Trump for his role in brokering the normalization of relations between the UAE and Israel. He noted that one of Trump’s books was titled “The Art of the Deal” but that he will be remembered “for being a great peacemaker.”

The national security adviser stumping for Trump to get Nobel consideration is certain to please the president, who last September said during the United Nations General Assembly that he would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “if they gave it out fairly.”

    He can send in photos of Trump’s secret police force bashing photographers and reporters with shields, blinded choking protesters and an old man lying on the sidewalk with a cracked skull as evidence of Trump’s peaceful nature.

    Trump is about a worthy of the Peace Prize as Obama. Maybe more so.

    Yes. I’m being sarcastic.

    Does anyone really pay much attention to it anymore? It has turned into a joke.
