Target: Norwegian Nobel Committee Chair Kaci Kullmann Five
Goal: Do not award Donald Trump with a Nobel Peace Prize after years of his violent and bigoted rhetoric.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is among the Nobel Peace Prize nominees for this year, sparking shock and outrage. Trump has been everything but deserving of the award, threatening to bomb ISIS, build a wall between America and Mexico, and put tariffs on China. Just on the campaign trail, he has mocked a physically disabled man and has made constant disparaging remarks about women.
An insider reported that someone higher-up nominated Trump for his “vigorous peace through strength ideology,” meaning the violent ways he has committed to defeating ISIS, Iran, Russia, and others. This is not peaceful, and is the exact opposite of what the award is given for. His violent rhetoric and brash manner of speaking should automatically disqualify him from the award.
The same source reported that Trump is not on the shortlist, but we need to make sure he does not end up with the award. He is not deserving of sharing the award with Martin Luther King, Jr., Malala Yousafzai, and the Red Cross. Other nominees include Edward Snowden, Iranian and American nuclear negotiators, a former ISIS slave, and others more deserving. Let the committee chair know Trump does not deserve this honor.
Dear Chairwoman Five,
As Chairperson for the Norwegian Nobel Committee, you have a duty to uphold the award’s long and storied history. We are writing to urge you and the rest of the committee not to give Donald Trump the award. He is completely undeserving of it and the fact that his name has been mentioned alongside real peace heroes is an insult to everyone he has threatened.
On the campaign trail in America, Trump has laid out plans to bomb ISIS, build a wall on the Mexican border, and kick out Muslims in the country. He has mocked the disabled and insulted women on national television. He has consistently shown that he is the exact opposite of what a Peace Prize nominee should be.
Whomever nominated Trump should have their voting stance re-evaluated. The other nominees are all far more deserving of a Peace Prize and should all be considered over Trump. Trump should not share an award with the likes of Malala, Dr. King and Barack Obama. We urge that you take his name out of consideration immediately.
[Your Name Here]
