Letter to the editor: Not fit for Nobel

To the editor:

The Nobel Peace Prize was established as one of five beneficiaries in the will of Alfred Nobel, a Swedish chemist (1833 – 1896). The prize has been given out annually since 1901. The qualification for receiving the award was outlined in the will as “the person who shall have done the most or best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.”

Our current administration has stoked divisiveness among its own citizens, thumbed its nose at our allies and poured fuel on the Mideast. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize? Seriously?
