Chris Cuomo says Trump didn't win Nobel Peace Prize due to 'failing to call out domestic terror'
CHRIS Cuomo has said that Donald Trump didn't win the Nobel Peace Prize to due "failing to call out domestic terror."
World Food Program chiefs were handed the award on Friday, beating other suggested contenders including President Donald Trump and Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Just hours later, during "Cuomo Prime Time," the anchor slammed the president's loss.
"Here's something you're not hearing on Fox. Trump didn’t win the Nobel Peace Prize today," Cuomo began.
"Wonder why? Maybe it was failing to call out domestic terror, like the 13 suspects who may have been acting on his insurrection calls to liberate Michigan.
"They were all charged in a kidnapping plot against Michigan's governor and trying to overthrow government. Not very peace-y."
Cuomo went on to say that Trump is "too busy dividing and inflaming" before slamming those that nominated the presidnet.
"Oh by the way, he was nominated by this far-right Norwegian lawmaker who put his name in for working on the UAE-Israel peace deal and there was a Swedish parliament member who nominated him for helping secure an economic deal between Serbia and Kosovo."
The WFP organisation, a United Nations agency based in Rome, provided assistance to almost 100 million people in 88 countries around the world last year.
Referencing the winners, Cuomo quipped that: "we may need them here soon, an ever-increasing number are waiting in line for food in America. In an economy this president calls the greatest of all time, despite the worst unemployment rate since the 1940s."
Trump has long rallied for a Peace Prize – wanting to emulate the victory by his predecessor President Barack Obama.
He has also been nominated for the 2021 prize for brokering a deal that saw the UAE and Bahrain formally normalize relations with Israel.
