Deny the nomination of Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize

This petition asks the Nobel Selection Committee to deny the nomination made on behalf of Donald J. Trump by several members of the Republican Party who are now serving in the Congress of the United States. This nomination, which has been made for obvious political purposes, insults and disregards the spirit and the explicit guidelines for selection as stipulated in the will of Alfred Nobel, which states that the Prize shall be given " to the person who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses". For Pres. Trump to be honored as the person who (has) done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, is a personal affront to the people of the many nations that he has seen fit to insult, threaten and coerce, first as a candidate and now as President. His blatant disregard for the "fraternity of nations" is evidenced by his withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords, the Trans-Pacific Trade Agreement, his likely withdrawal from the Iran Nuclear Agreement and his heavy handed threats to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Alliance as well as his antagonistic trading tactics towards a number of other nations, including many of his own allies. This is to say nothing of the racial and ethnic stereo-typing and hostility that he has shown in an anti-immigration agenda that has been blatantly directed towards Muslims, Africans, Latinos and others, in complete disregard of the criticism that these actions have drawn from the international community. Thus, for this nomination to be given serious consideration is a further insult to the very same international community that has historically supported the Nobel Selection Committee's mission to honor those whose lives have shown a consistent engagement with solving humanity's most pressing concerns, and in doing so, serve as an inspiration to others to follow in their footsteps.
