That's a big can of worms;

- Is that peace treaty really such a big deal ? It isn't like Israel and Bahrain was in a active war against each other or even had border issue.
- Did Trump really work much on that treaty or just put his name on it at the end?

In my book, no US President since WW2 should ever be admissible for that price, the assassination of Qasem Soleimani alone should disqualifie Trump.

And before you ask, yes they should not have given Obama that Nobel as well.

I still remember Trump moving the US embassy to Jerusalem and that absolutely did not help the peace progress

"Legitimacy is based on three things. First of all, the people who are asked to obey authority have to feel like they have a voice—that if they speak up, they will be heard. Second, the law has to be predictable. There has to be a reasonable expectation that the rules tomorrow are going to be roughly the same as the rules today. And third, the authority has to be fair. It can’t treat one group differently from another.” Malcolm Gladwell

NOBODY BACK IN 2009 have ever said the Peace Nobel was deserved, even Obama was skeptical about the merits of it. Then again, Kissinger got it, nice joke once you know what he did to Latin America.

2009 was the year lots of people (including me) cared enough to find out that the Nobel Peace Prize was kinda bullshit. It's not really anyone's fault, least of all the recipients, but it is.

I'm sure recipients can reject the prize if they want to...

It was never a question of if for me. It was all a matter of when. He tempted fate a lot too many times. Eventually it was going to catch up to him.
