should trump get the nobel peace prize?
bill clinton got his in the 90s for the same thing.
i also respect the fact trump ended the 18 year war and made peace with the taliban, also had talks with north korea.

A treaty is agreed between the UAE and Israel and without Trump ever attending or sending anyone from his government to partake in these negotiations, yet Trump is taking the credit.
Do explain how Trump has ended the 18 year war in Afghanistan as there are currently still around 8000 American soldiers in this country.
What sort of peace is it when on 12 May this year, a hospital's maternity ward in Kabul and a funeral in Kuz Kunar (Khewa), Nangarhar were attacked, resulting in the deaths of 56 people and injuries of 148 others, including newborn babies, mothers, nurses, and mourners.
On June 5, 2020, 10 policemen were killed in attacks in Zabul province.The next day on June 6, a roadside bomb killed 11 members of the Afghan security forces when their vehicle hit a bomb.
On 12 June 2020, a Sunni mosque in Kabul was bombed, killing four people and injuring another eight. Over a week later on June 29, at least 23 people were killed in rocket attacks on a cattle market in Sangin District, Helmand Province.
On July 8, four police officers were killed and 11 more wounded in Nangarhar Province by a Taliban suicide bomber.
On July 11, six civilians were killed and another eight wounded in Ghazni Province by a suspected Taliban roadside bomb.The next day on July 12, Taliban insurgents attacked multiple checkpoints in Kunduz Province, killing at least 14 members of the Afghan security forces.
On July 13, the Taliban attacked a compound used by Afghanistan's intelligence agency in Aybak District, Samangan Province, with a suicide car bomb and two gunmen. At least 11 intelligence agency personnel were killed in addition to all three attackers. A further 63 people were wounded as a result of the attack.
On July 14, five civilians were killed and another 11 wounded in Kabul when their car hit a suspected Taliban roadside bomb. In a separate incident in Faryab Province, four people were killed after the Taliban opened fire on them while they were praying inside a mosque.
On July 15, seven police officers were killed and another six wounded in Kandahar Province after an attack by the Taliban on a security checkpoint. Two days later on July 17, nine people were wounded by a Taliban bomb in Baghlan Province. This was followed by a similar incident the next day in which three civilian were killed while riding on their motorcycle in Badghis Province as a result of a Taliban bomb.
On July 19, two soldiers were killed after Taliban gunmen opened fire on them while they were traveling on a motorcycle in Kabul. On the same day in Paktika Province, four police officers were killed by a Taliban bomb.
In an early attack in Kunduz Province on July 20, 13 security personnel were killed and a further 10 wounded when their checkpoint was attacked by multiple Taliban gunmen. On the same day, eight soldiers were killed and another nine wounded after a Taliban suicide bomber struck their convoy in Maidan Wardak Province, Central Afghanistan.
. On July 21, eight soldiers were killed when their Humvee struck a Taliban IED in Uruzgan Province. This was followed by an attack on a checkpoint on July 22 in Kandahar Province, which resulted in the deaths of seven security personnel. In a separate bomb incident, at least three police officers in Tarinkot, Uruzgan Province, were killed on July 29.
In a large explosion on July 30, 8 people died and 30 more injured in Puli Alam city, Logar Province. On the same day in clashes with security forces, nine Taliban militants, including two leaders, were killed by security forces in Ghazni Province.
Then so far this month there have been five more such attacks killing over 50 people. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/August_2020_Afghanis...
So all I can say is you have a very strange idea of what peace is.
As for North Korea, where is this peace deal Trump promised, Kim is still testing his weapons and now Trump says as they cant reach the USA it does not matter. And this is what you are trying to paint as a success?

The Nobel committee is a pack of liars who've made clear, their prizes are meaningless.

There's no way to tell how much covert warfare he's ended, but the Abraham Accord could be a clue

He SHOULD get it, but unfortunately the “Nobel Peace Prize” has very little to do with actually promoting peace, and much more to do with promoting leftism/socialism/communism
Trump doesn’t need the approval of a leftist company that pretends to be a reputable Prize organization
