College snowflakes at UC Santa Cruz were quick to shoot down the idea of President Trump winning the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula. But did they think President Obama deserved his award? And if so, could they name a reason why?
This is a perfect example of just how brainwashed our students are. They have no clue what Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for but they’re sure that President Trump has done nothing to deserve one. To their credit, no one REALLY knows what Obama won for because the committee gave him the award for “strengthening diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” yet he’d done nothing of the sort. The Nobel Secretary (see below) spoke out in 2015 to say there is regret in giving Obama the prize because it was given in HOPES that it would “strengthen” Obama. So they gave the prize in hopes and not for a specific accomplishment? That’s so typical of the left…
Via Daily Caller:
Students at the University of California, Santa Cruz claimed that President Donald Trump does not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for what appears to be major progress with the North Korean regime. Those same students felt that former President Obama did deserve his Nobel, although none of them were able to remember why he got it.
Their answers were documented in a video published by Campus Reform on Saturday, which was featured on Saturday morning’s “Fox & Friends.”
When asked whether Trump deserved to be considered for the honor, their answers were 50 shades of “no.”
“Hell no, that’s a joke. What has he done for peace?”
“I feel like he just thinks that he deserves many awards and that’s just stupid.”
“I feel like it’s too good of a prize for him to have credit for.”
Awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to US President Barack Obama in 2009 failed to achieve what the committee hoped it would, its ex-secretary has said.
Geir Lundestad told the AP news agency that the committee hoped the award would strengthen Mr Obama.
Instead, the decision was met with criticism in the US. Many argued he had not had any impact worthy of the award.
Mr Lundestad, writing in his memoir, Secretary of Peace, said even Mr Obama himself had been surprised.
“No Nobel Peace Prize ever elicited more attention than the 2009 prize to Barack Obama,” Mr Lundestad writes.
“Even many of Obama’s supporters believed that the prize was a mistake,” he says. “In that sense the committee didn’t achieve what it had hoped for”.
