President Donald Trump asserted on Monday that the Nobel Peace Prize process is unfair because he should get one “for a lot of things.”
While appearing at the UN, Trump speculated on why he had not been awarded a Nobel Prize.
“I would get a Nobel prize for a lot of things, if they give it out fairly, which they don’t,” Trump said. “They gave one to Obama immediately upon his ascent to the presidency and he had no idea why he got it.”
“You know what?” the president added. “That was the only thing I agreed with him on.”

This article was produced in partnership between the Charleston Gazette-Mail and ProPublica. By Ken Ward, Jr.
Last fall, Gov. Jim Justice called reporters to his office in the West Virginia Capitol for a hastily arranged news conference.

Trump may ‘undo his presidency’ — with Republicans backing impeachment: CNN’s conservative anchor
President Donald Trump's presidency is in peril as Republican lawmakers condemn the administration for green-lighting Turkey's ethnic cleansing of Kurds in northern Syria.
"President Trump this week set fire to the emoluments clause by announcing his own resort would host the G-7 summit. His Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney, set fire to his boss’s innocence admitting on camera to the very thing Trump is being investigated for and possibly impeached over," CNN's S.E. Cupp said.
"Donald Trump has put the Republican Party through a lot. Most have gone willingly along with him -- kids in cages, a trade war, protecting Putin, honoring Kim Jong-Un, breaking the law, the lies, the insults, the fake news, the rape allegations. Defending the president over the indefensible has become something of a cottage industry for Republican lawmakers, few of whom have ever dared to call him out," she noted.
Boris Johnson said he would rather be ‘dead in a ditch’ than delay Brexit — but just asked to extend deadline
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is to write to Brussels seeking a Brexit deadline extension after MPs voted Saturday to demand he delay Britain's October 31 departure date.
In a phonecall with European Council President Donald Tusk after the vote, Johnson said he would send the letter mandated by MPs to seek more time, a EU source told AFP.
"The PM confirmed that the letter would be sent to Tusk today," the source said.
"Tusk will on that basis start consulting EU leaders on how to react. This may take a few days," he added.
Tusk said on Twitter that he was "waiting for the letter".
