WATCH: McEnany on Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize Nomination “This is a big deal and well-deserved”

Asked about President Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize nomination, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said “This is a big deal and well-deserved.”

She added “You cannot deny what has happened on President Trump’s watch.”

McEnany cited the peace deal between Israel and the UAE as one of the reasons she believes President Trump deserves the award.

“This president has created peace around the world, drew down endless wars, and this is a president who is very much deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize,” she explained.



The official Twitter account for the GOP wrote “A well-deserved nomination. Congratulations, President @realDonaldTrump!”

Senator Tom Cotton wrote “Obama’s Nobel Prize was a joke. This is deserved.”

Scherie Murray wrote “Congratulations on being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, President @realDonaldTrump. You are winning with your diplomatic, law and order, tax cuts, jobs and economic growth policies. Keep up the great work Mr. President.”

Bradley Scott wrote “The Nobel Peace Prize lost all credibility when @BarackObama won it for being a black US President. Would you feel like it had meaning again if @realDonaldTrump won it for the Israel-UAE accord?”

Scott Presler wrote “President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize. I’m proud that I voted for a President, whose aim is to end endless wars. His work on the Korean Peninsula & helping to negotiate peace between Israel and the UAE is worthy of the Nobel Peace Prize.”
