Breaking news, c/o of a former student who sent the linked article: President Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work toward the denuclearization of North Korea.
President Trump was nominated by two members of Norway’s Progress Party, a conservative party that supports lower taxes and limited immigration, so it’s no surprise on that front, and it’s still a long way from winning the coveted Prize itself.
Nevertheless, it’s a victory for Trump, the peace process, and the hopes for peace on the Korean Peninsula. It’s also much more deserved than President Obama’s 2009 Peace Prize win, which was awarded simply because he was “cool” and went on his Mid-East “apology tour.”
Despite negative publicity from the child separation policy—which Trump is also making moves to end as I write—the President is having a great week.
First, peace on the Korean Peninsula. Next, liberty among the stars. Congratulations, Mr. President!
