President Donald Trump has very much earned the Nobel Peace Prize, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday.
Declaring that Trump “just pulled off the first breakthrough in 25 years" in the Middle East with the Israel-UAE normalization deal, Gingrich added that "I think that the scale of the achievement is so great and it so dramatically changes the temperature and the rhythm of the Middle East, particularly if one or two more countries follow on. I think at that point it is very hard to deny Trump the fact that he really would have earned the Nobel Peace Prize by following very strong diplomacy despite many of the so-called experts who deeply opposed it."
Gingrich made the comments after Trump was nominated for the prize by Norwegian Parliament Member Christian Tybring-Gjedde.
Gingrich said that “President Obama basically got the Nobel Peace Prize for waking up and they gave it to him at the very beginning of his administration,” adding that Obama “then frankly failed in Syria, failed the Palestinians, and failed in the Middle East.”
Gingrich said Trump followed a “very different approach from the Obama administration” that resulted in “creating a real relationship” not only for the “United Arab Emirates, but also with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain and Sudan.”
He added that “I would not be at all surprised to see two or three more countries create a relationship with Israel in the next few months.”
