Hard pass.

Between 1901 and 2019, the Nobel Prizes and the Prize in Economic Sciences were awarded five hundred and ninety-seven times. Donald Trump would like to be the five hundred and ninety-eighth recipient even though nearly one hundred and sixty-seven Americans have died on his watch from the COVID-19 pandemic that he failed to promptly address when he first learned of the looming threat. And, instead of addressing the civil unrest in the United States, Trump incited violence upon the anti-racist protesters.

There is a lengthy list of failures that is attributed to Donald J. Trump during his presidency, and today marks yet another one. While Americans are dying, Trump is going to his golf club in New Jersey again. Meanwhile, Trump took to Twitter to share conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich’s tweet calling for the president to be awarded the Nobel Prize.


Twitter users disagree.

Our wartime president surrendered to the coronavirus without even putting up a fight, and he wants a participation trophy.
