President Donald Trump falsely declared at a North Carolina rally Saturday that he and his supporters are being honored with the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump was nominated for the prize by a far-right Norwegian politician -- but it's highly unlikely he'll get the award.

Trump is s-o-o-o-o jealous of Obama!

Heaven help us is he loses the election to Obama's Vice President. Trump will go all Helter-Skelter.

As for a Nobel . . .

Trump couldn't even win out over a 13 year old girl (climate change) in a bid to get his picture on the cover of TIME.

Pres Trump has one huge accomplishment of his Presidency, though I doubt if he will win the Nobel for it or be boasting about it...

The Trump Pandemic (Aug 2020)

...On July 17, President Donald Trump sat for a Fox News interview at the White House. At the time, nearly 140,000 Americans were dead from the novel coronavirus. The interviewer, Chris Wallace, showed Trump a video clip in which Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, warned of a difficult fall and winter ahead. Trump dismissed the warning. He scoffed that experts had misjudged the virus all along. "Everybody thought this summer it would go away," said Trump. "They used to say the heat, the heat was good for it and it really knocks it out, remember? So they got that one wrong."

Trump's account was completely backward. Redfield and other U.S. public health officials had never promised that heat would knock out the virus. In fact, they had cautioned against that assumption. The person who had held out the false promise of a warm-weather reprieve, again and again, was Trump. And he hadn't gotten the idea from any of his medical advisers. He had gotten it from Xi Jinping, the president of China, in a phone call in February.

The phone call, the talking points Trump picked up from it, and his subsequent attempts to cover up his alliance with Xi are part of a deep betrayal. The story the president now tells -- that he "built the greatest economy in history," that China blindsided him by unleashing the virus, and that Trump saved millions of lives by mobilizing America to defeat it -- is a lie. Trump collaborated with Xi, concealed the threat, impeded the U.S. government's response, silenced those who sought to warn the public, and pushed states to take risks that escalated the tragedy.

He's personally responsible for tens of thousands of deaths.

This isn't speculation. All the evidence is in the public record....

Just tell those folks in the funny, Chinese made hats that Obama won it first. They will start chanting "give it back"...

This is better than saying what he really won; the Putin Commemorative Sock Puppet Prize.

Wow...Biden may actually deserve the Nobel Prize if he defeats Trump.

Donald Trump experiences paranoid delusions. He's barking mad.

If he believes he built the greatest economy ever..
Or believes he did a great job on cv19...
Or believes Ted Cruz's father killed JFK..
It only make sense he thinks he has won the nobel, probably thinks he will win a Grammy too

Some day, if there is a God, many black lives will be giving it to Trump in prison.

He should be. Obama got one for just getting elected then went on to illegally invade and occupy Syria. Trump hasn't managed to invade anybody.

You're a sad little man. And your supporters are really sad little men

What Trump is doing is only possible because obviously his base is dumb enough to believe anything he says. If his "base" had the IQ of a squid, they of course all would know that he has never won the Nobel Prize except in his narcissistic fantasies. But they are, as has been noted time and again, astoundingly stupid.

First Black Guy to get elected President in a country that was still desegregating schools 30 years earlier and who a third of the country thought was a foreign born secret Muslim (including the current president)?

Yeah, I'd say that's impressive.

BUT as for Syria...

Kill ISIS. Don't kill ISIS. Can you make up your mind? And since when did air strikes and special forces equal Invasion and Occupation? Or Illegal Invasion and Occupation for that matter?

Wait............Are you sympathizing with the Syrian regime's befriending of ISIS and slaughtering of its own people?

BTW, Trump put more soldiers on the ground in Syria. And sent an addition 14,000 troops to the Middle East in 2019 including to a new base in Saudi Arabia. Not to mention he nearly started a war with Iran.

So no one knows WTF you are blabbering about.

According to Trump (on tape): "You have no idea how close we were to [nuclear] war [with North Korea]."

North Korea does not have the militaty capability to wage nuclear war against the United States...

Living boldly up to your name. "Fight ISIS, don't fight ISIS." No young man, WE ACTIVELY SUPPLIED ISIS PER GENERAL PATREUS.

Obama got a peace prize for a hope & change campaign. He turned out to be just another in a long line of corporatist neo-conservative/neo-liberal war hawks.

There hasn't been an American president deserving of a peace prize since.. I really can't think of a single one.
