Trump’s Nobel Peace Prize Unlikely

Donald Trump’s quest for a Nobel Peace Prize was always more a product of his self-regard and endless competition with Barack Obama than a realistic possibility. But, when Trump threatened the destruction of Iran’s cultural sites if Iran attacked the U.S. after he ordered the assassination of their top general, Qassem Soleimani, he became more likely to be compared to terrorist-like ISIS and its destruction of Palmyra and the Taliban destruction of stone Buddha statues than a Nobel laureate.
