”n September 9th, a member of the Norwegian parliament, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, nominated U.S. President Donald J. Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
Such a nomination of this President will strike many as being absurd after more than four years of nonstop histrionic media coverage that paints Trump as an out of control war-mongering buffoon in the pocket of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
After the real estate billionaire won the 2016 election, there were loud pronouncements of forthcoming doom and gloom in the media.
Donald Trump with the nuclear codes will be a disaster, we were all assured. The brash, thoughtless, and impulsive blowhard would instantly antagonize other world leaders with his swaggering alpha male act, making the world a far more dangerous place.
Well, excuse me.
Far from blowing the world up, Trump continues to solve seemingly intractable problems that stumped the Washington policy wonk class for years, if not decades.
It appears the only thing Donald Trump has blown up in his first term as America’s President was the illusion the foreign policy class in Washington knew what it was doing.
The fact of the matter is, Trump turned out to be right, and the Washington DC “Smart Set” was wrong.
Let’s just take a quick walk down memory lane and compare the scorecards, shall we?
