BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 P.M.) – U.S. President Donald Trump made a bid for the Nobel Peace Prize during a speech at the White House on Friday.
“They gave it to Obama. He didn’t even know what he got it for. He was there for about 15 seconds and he got the Nobel Prize. He said, ‘Oh, what did I get it for?’…With me, I probably will never get it. But if you look at Idlib Province in Syria, I stopped the slaughter of perhaps 3 million people. Nobody talks about that,” Trump said, as quoted by Newsweek.
Trump boasted that he saved three-million people from being killed by Syrians, Iranians, and Russians in the Idlib Governorate of northwest Syria.
“Russia and Iran and Syria were going to go in and perhaps destroy 3 million people in order to get 45,000 terrorists. And I heard about it from a woman who had her parents and her brothers living there, and she said, ‘please, please,’ and I thought, and I said, ‘No, it can’t happen,’” Trump continued. “And I put out a statement that ‘you better not do it’… And in all fairness to Russia and Iran and Syria, they didn’t attack,” he continued.
“This administration does a tremendous job and we don’t get credit for it,” Trump added.
