Moments ago, during his Nevada rally, President Trump mocked Obama receiving a Nobel prize.
“Obama came into office they gave him the Nobel prize like almost immediately, right?” Trump asked.
“In fact he didn’t even know why he got it. He had no idea why he got it and he was right about that because nobody else knows either,” he added.

According to Wikipedia, the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to United States President Barack Obama for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”. The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama’s promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a “new climate” in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world.
