U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) has nominated former President Donald Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize over his “historic” Abraham Accords treaty.
“Donald Trump was instrumental in facilitating the first new peace agreements in the Middle East in almost 30 years,” Tenney said in a statement, according to Fox News. “For decades, bureaucrats, foreign policy ‘professionals’, and international organizations insisted that additional Middle East peace agreements were impossible without a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. President Trump proved that to be false.”
The Abraham Accords are a series of treaties normalizing diplomatic relations between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco. Tenney’s nomination comes on the heels of three American soldiers being killed by Iranian-backed militants, and she stressed that there has been no recognition of Trump’s role in brokering the agreement.
