Trump Receives Second Peace Prize Nomination After Brokering Serbia-Kosovo Deal
The deal “allows economic cooperation, rail and transit links, and the free movement of people and goods between the two countries.”
A Norwegian official nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this week for brokering the peace deal between Israel and the UAE.
Now a Swedish official nominated Trump after he negotiated a deal between Serbia and Kosovo.
From The New York Post:
In a Friday morning tweet, Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish Parliament, announced he was nominating the Trump administration and the two European nations for their “joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House.”
“Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” Jacobsson wrote, sharing his letter to the Nobel Committee.

The deal settled with Trump does not mean Serbia recognizes Kosovo’s independence.
However, it will allow growth:
“It took decades because you didn’t have anybody trying to get it done,” Trump said in the Oval Office, flanked by Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti and Serbia President Aleksandar Vučić.
“There was a lot of fighting and now there’s a lot of love,” he continued.
Serbia still does not recognize Kosovo’s independence but it allows economic cooperation, rail and transit links, and the free movement of people and goods between the two countries.
The deal “also includes a one-year moratorium on Kosovo’s efforts to seek membership in international organizations and Serbia’s campaign to prevent its recognition.”
U.S. Special Envoy for Serbia and Kosovo Richard Grenell said, “Let’s give them a little taste of the Trump economy.”
Plus. Serbia and Kosovo will move their embassies in Israel to Jerusalem. Israel also agreed to recognize Kosovo.
Serbian President Slobodan Milošević ended Kosovo’s autonomy in 1989. Only Albania recognized the new republic at first. A rebellion began, which turned into a full-fledged war from 1998 to 1999.
Miloševič faced numerous accusations of war crimes after the war: looting, burning, rape, massacres, and ethnic cleansing.
Kosovo Albanians faced similar war crimes accusations, too. A Human Rights Watch report in 2001 found that at least 1,000 Serbs and Roma went missing since June 1999.
Kosovo officially declared independence in 2008. By 2020, 113 United Nation members recognized Kosovo. Serbia did not recognize the new country along with Russia and China.

What a concept. Nominated for actually achieving a peaceful outcome. Not for just getting elected.
Libtards heads explode.
I thought I heard a pop-pop-pop noise in the background.
It’s refreshing to have a POTUS with a coherent foreign policy that is oriented towards peace and prosperity rather than a puppet of the State Department who will just enable their disastrous color revolutions and holy wars.
No more Neocons such as Nikki Haley.
Obviously you have to do nothing…like Obama to win it….
Would Trump be justified if he refused the Nobel Prize because the Norwegians cheapened it by giving the prize to Obama.
How can anybody think Obama deserved the prize for doing absolutely nothing?
President Donald J. Trump studied these issues for decades. Probably started laying the groundwork for these peace deals over the years. He didn’t stumble into the Presidency and his second term is going to be amazing.
He may be nominated but the liberal loving lefties that controls the Nobel’s will squash it.
The Atlantic calls to ‘end the Nobel Peace Prize’ following Trump nominations
‘Peace had its chance, and blew it,’ reads the tagline of the article
“If Trump wins the prize, it will be the fourth Nobel awarded for peace between Israel and its neighbors,” wrote Atlantic staff writer Graeme Wood. “That will make Arab-Israeli peace mediators more successful at charming the Nobel Committee than the International Committee of the Red Cross, which has won three times in the prize’s 120-year history, but still less successful than my favorite, which is no one at all.
“Giving the peace prize to no one at all is a tradition the Nobel Committee should revive, perhaps on a permanent basis,” Wood added. “The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing. Peace had its chance, and blew it. The Trump nomination … helps show why.”
I am waiting for a hat trick.
I’m waiting for the Grand Slam: Afghanistan.
Historic Peace Deals Achieved By Trump Are Just ‘Distractions’ From Virus
That’s gotta chap the lefties hide.
It’s interesting how the Swedish guy said he doesn’t really care for Trump as a person – but look what he did for peace in the in the Middle East! And he said something like “we’ve given peace prizes to people who didn’t do anything, like Obama.”
