President Trump is finally getting some well deserved credit for his foreign policy success.
This summer, Trump brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. It was the first such deal reached in the region in almost twenty-five years, and could transform the Middle East.
For this amazing achievement, Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. There is no guarantee he will get it, but the nomination is a recognition on its own.

Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize after helping to broker Israel-UAE deal
The US president’s name has been put forward by Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde, according to Fox News.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Mr Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of parliament, told the channel.
On Tuesday, a White House official announced Mr Trump will hold a signing ceremony on 15 September for a groundbreaking Middle East agreement normalising relations between Israel and the UAE.
As part of the deal, announced at the White House on 13 August following what officials said were 18 months of talks, the Gulf state agreed to normal relations with Israel, while Israel agreed to continue with plans to suspend its annexation of the West Bank.
President Obama got this award for doing nothing. Surely Trump deserves it for what he has done.
For @realdonaldtrump to get a #NobelPrize would do honor to the Nobel Committee, not to Trump. Trump’s the most powerful man in the world; he doesn’t need it. They need to give the prize to a deserving recipient to overcome their disgrace over giving it to the faineant Obama

Eight years of Obama-Biden foreign policy set the world on fire, from ISIS in the MidEast, to PRC island-building in the Pacific.
Donald Trump brokered historic deals between Israel/UAE & Kosovo/Serbia.
Obama's Nobel Prize was a joke. This is deserved.https://t.co/nB3HAAD2tS

Even if Trump doesn’t get the prize, people know he deserves it.
