Donald Trump is known for a lot of things–being a real estate magnate; putting his name on everything from mattresses to Mexican-made ties; and saying the most outlandish ish while still being a top contender for the Republican presidential nomination–but encouraging peace ain’t one of them. Still, somebody thought it was fitting to add the Donald’s name to the list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Price…right next to Pope Francis.
The Independent reports:
Trump’s reported nomination comes after he made a number of inflammatory and divisive comments in the run-up to the caucus. The billionaire business magnate “endeared himself to millions by proposing Muslims be banned from entering the US and has been condemned for his comments about immigration and Mexican migrants, with one of his most infamous pledges being to build a “big beautiful wall” between the US and Mexico.
While it’s doubtful Trump has a shot at winning the prestigious award, the fact that he was nominated because his hate speech pretty much indicates we’re doomed.
