“I think that the scale of the achievement is so great and it so dramatically changes the temperature and the rhythm of the Middle East, particularly if one or two more countries follow on. I think at that point it is very hard to deny Trump the fact that he really would have earned the Nobel Peace Prize by following very strong diplomacy despite many of the so-called experts who deeply opposed it.” Newt said Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends.

Good morning. Well, let me say first of all, I’m delighted that a Norwegian parliamentarian would nominate President Trump. You know, president Obama basically got the Nobel Peace Prize for waking up and they gave it to him at the very beginning of his administration. And he then frankly failed in Syria, failed with the Palestinians, failed in the Middle East. But President Trump, who has followed a very different approach, has actually created a real relationship. Not just to the United Arab Emirates but with Places like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and Bahrain and Sudan. I would not be at all surprised to see two or three more countries create a relationship with Israel in the next few months. So, this is a remarkable achievement by a president who many of the so-called sophisticates think doesn’t know what he is doing but he just pulled off the first breakthrough in 25 years.
I think, actually, they are not bad. Because I think that the scale of the achievement is so great, and it’s so dramatically changes the temperature and the rhythm of the Middle East. Particularly if one or two more countries follow on. I think at that point it’s very hard to deny President Trump the fact that he really will have earned the Nobel Peace Prize by following a very strong diplomacy, despite many of the so-called experts who deeply opposed him.
Sure. And I think you have to recognize when you start having these massive mailouts. I just had a friend from Hawaii send me one of her neighbors just got a ballot for California. Which they had not requested. In Nevada, the Democrats are talking about sending out 200,000 ballots to people who post office has said no longer live in Nevada. And of course, what that would leave is mounds of mail at apartment houses, nursing homes which I’m sure the Culinary Union the strongest democratic organization in Nevada, would love to go around and pick up and maybe help vote. So, people who say there is no theft in voting, and this is all just, you know, some cry by Republicans, look at what just happened in New Jersey. Look at the ballots for South Carolina that never got there that were found frankly in New Jersey, also, I think we have to recognize there are some very real dangers that the Democrats in particular will try to steal the election this fall because they are so desperate to defeat president Trump.
Sure. I think what the president should say is it is terrific if you want to vote absentee in an orderly way, so we know who you really are. But it is wrong to have massive ballots sent out when nobody asks for them. It’s a clear distinction of those two. And he ought to encourage absentee voting with when appropriate but be totally opposed to these kinds of anonymous massive mail-outs that are going to lead to people, I think, routinely cheating with these ballots.
Well, let me express my mind freely as he requests. One, he ought to be fired. Two, the idea of just think about the language. How do you communicate with the masses? That is communist language designed to create a dictatorship. We don’t have masses. We have citizens. The great genius of the Founding Fathers wasn’t launching the revolution. It was turning the revolution into a constitution establishing the rule of law. When you put up somebody like Che Guevara to young people as though he is a role model. Che Guevara was a thug, a murderer, he was in charge of killing people in Cuba. And he sadly has become this wonderful literary hero. I frankly, personally as a professional historian, totally sick of the way in which the academic world now lives in a fantasy and wants to brainwash young people into believing things that are false. He was a fascinating theoretician, but he did not create any operational republics or any sense of the rule of law.
