National security adviser Robert O’Brien said Thursday that President Trump should be the front-runner for the Nobel Peace Prize because of his work in the Middle East and the agreement announced Thursday between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
“When you step back and take a look at what this president has done on the peace front, and it wouldn’t surprise me, it’ll take some time in this environment, but it wouldn’t surprise me if the president’s eventually nominated for a Nobel Prize,” O’Brien said during the White House press briefing.
“Today’s work is an example of why he would be rightly considered and should be a front-runner for the Nobel Peace Prize,” he added.
O’Brien noted Trump’s work to put pressure on Iran by pulling the US out of the nuclear deal, wiping out the Islamic State in the Middle East and cutting off funding for terrorists in Yemen, Lebanon and Syria.
“And today, we have the Abraham Accords … at last peace between the UAE and Israel,” O’Brien said.
“What I have said is the president is often known as the greatest deal maker and he wrote the book ‘The Art of the Deal.’ He’s considered a great, great deal maker, which he is. But I think history is going to remember the president for being a great peacemaker.”
