Trump reacted to the "great honor" of being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by calling it "a great cause for our country."

President Trump greeted him nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize 2021 in an exclusive interview Fox News Rundown on Thursday, calling it “a great thing for our country.”

“I am honored to be nominated and I know it makes a huge difference,” Trump told Fox News Radio. White House correspondent John Decker… “I just think it’s great for our country. This shows that we are constantly trying to establish peace, not war. “

Trump’s nomination for the Peace Prize was submitted by Christian Tybring-Jedde, Norwegian MP who praised the president’s role in mediation world agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).


Trump said the so-called Abraham Agreement is just the beginning of a broader US effort to resolve protracted conflicts around the world.

“We are working on a peace agreement in Afghanistan, working directly with the Taliban, and this is going pretty well … we will probably find out about it pretty soon,” the president said. “So we are committed to bringing peace to the world, because the world has other issues to focus on.”

Tybring-Jeddah, in his letter of nomination for the Nobel Committee, said that the Trump administration “has worked harder to bring peace between countries than most other Peace Prize nominees.” But, as Decker pointed out, not everyone would describe Trump as a peacemaker.


Former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis recently described Trump as “the first president in my life who is not trying to unite the American people. Instead, he tries to divide us. “

“I think sometimes you have to break eggs to make an omelet,” Trump replied.

“Sometimes you really have to go and do it, shuffle it, so to speak. And then all of a sudden, you get something very beautiful. “

The President claimed that his predecessors failed on the peace front because, as he put it, “we never had the talent to achieve this and make these deals.

“And I will tell you that other countries from the Middle East are dying to come. They, they want to come so badly, ”continued Trump. “We’re going to put it all together like a beautiful puzzle.


“It was a very difficult puzzle for many people. But I understood this, and I understand that they want peace. They have fought for decades and decades, and in some cases, they have fought for centuries. And they would like to see the world, and it will definitely happen. “

Addressing Wednesday’s announcement that 2,200 US troops will leave Iraq by the end of this month, Trump said the US military “is now at a stage where we can return very quickly. If something happens, we can come back very quickly.


“Militarily, this is a different century,” the president said. “We just spent $ 2.5 trillion on military equipment and other things related to our army … We have never had more modern equipment, and today this equipment is very different from what it was even 10 years ago, even Five years ago. back. And we don’t have to be there. “

The former FIFA employee says she was the victim of harassment and still does not know if Miguel Macedo was punished.



The young man, whose name has not been released, filed two complaints against Miguel Macedo over a year ago. FIFA mediator says he has evidence of abuse, but agent remains in body

A former FIFA employee, whose identity is unknown, told The New York Times whether Miguel Macedo, who is in charge of the FIFA Legends program, was punished for sexually harassing her.

According to the North American newspaper, the claims of a young woman who filed a complaint more than a year ago were confirmed by a FIFA mediator who had access to details of the behavior of the Portuguese, who maintains good relations with President Gianni Infantino.

In 2018, the former employee joined the legal department of the organizations of the governing body of world football, under the tutelage of Miguel Macedo, in charge of the FIFA Legends project, which is dedicated to the creation of activities carried out by former – world famous footballers.

That same year, according to The New York Times, the woman was subjected to several acts of sexual harassment by Miguel Macedo, who instructed what clothes to wear and sent sycophant messages to the young woman.

The victim said that one day she was asked to go to the room of the accused agent early in the morning. In another situation, on evaluation, a young woman was groped by Miguel Macedo and became the object of provocative comments. “It was one of the worst days,” said a young woman quoted by the NYT.

Despite a complaint filed by FIFA head of human resources Kimberly Morris, the organization did not take it into account, and the Portuguese agent ignored the investigation or even possible punishment.

I don’t know how we can continue to stay in this unhealthy environment,” the victim emphasized in an email. addressed, later to Joyce Cook.

However, Nirmala Diaz, FIFA’s mediator, has produced a report stressing that there is sufficient documentary evidence to address the woman’s complaints against Miguel Macedo (Figo’s former agent), who is still employed by FIFA.

Europa tem alternativas para substituir parcialmente o gás russo, defendem especialistas – Atualidade



Em declarações à France-Presse (AFP), especialistas consideraram “improvável” a interrupção total do abastecimento de gás natural russo, mas apontaram alternativas.

“Os gasodutos vêm da Noruega, Argélia e Azerbaijão, mas esses países não têm capacidade de produção adicional”, indicou Thierry Bros, professor da Sciences Po Paris.

Assim, prosseguiu, a Europa está de olhos postos no fornecimento de gás natural liquefeito (GNL), que pode chegar por navio, proveniente de qualquer parte do mundo.

Do outro lado do Oceano Atlântico, os Estados Unidos anunciaram que estão a trabalhar em “fornecimentos alternativos, que cobrem uma maioria significativa de potenciais cortes” no fornecimento de gás russo à Europa.

Nesse sentido, o Presidente Joe Biden tem já uma reunião agendada com o Emir do Catar, o maior exportador mundial de GNL, na próxima semana.

Também a Australia disse estar pronta para enviar gás natural para a Europa.

“Em termos de volumes [de GNL], os três gigantes, atualmente, são o Catar, a Austrália e os Estados Unidos”, indicou Vincent Demoury, delegado-geral do Grupo Internacional de Importadores de Gás Natural Liquefeito (GIIGNL).

“São sobretudo aqueles três países que teriam flexibilidade para produzir mais, ou redirecionar para a Europa volumes tradicionalmente direcionados para outros mercados”, acrescentou.

No entanto, “não é possível substituir todo o gás russo por GNL”, advertiu Thierry Bros.

As capacidades de regaseificação na Europa (incluindo o Reino Unido) são de cerca de 19 mil milhões de metros cúbicos (bcm) por mês, dos quais cerca de 8 bcm, em média, já estão utilizados, sobrando cerca de 11 bcm de capacidade para uso.

Aquele valor, apontou o especialista, nãoé suficiente para compensar os cerca de 14 bcm por mês vindos da Russia.

Este inverno, as reservas de gás na Europa estão baixas e os suprimentos da Rússia atingiram um nível historicamente baixo este mês.

Ainda assim, os especialistas duvidam que a Russia chegue ao ponto de fechar completamente a torneira.

“A suspensão total das exportações de gás continua a ser o menos provável dos cenários”, considerou o Eurasia Group.

Para o grupo de consultoria e pesquisa de risco político, “isso acarretaria sérios riscos de longo prazo para a estabilidade financeira e influência política da Rússia na Europa, já que a União Europeia, provavelmente, responderia agressivamente, diversificando o seu suprimento de energia”.

“Os russos não têm interesse em interromper as entregas”, realçou Thierry Bros.

Além do interesse financeiro, apontou, a manutenção das suas entregas “permite criar discordância na Europa”, uma vez que a Rússia poderia continuar a abastecer alguns países (Alemanha, Grécia, Hungria, por exemplo), mas outros não (Polónia, Lituânia) .

Perante uma crise que ilustra a forte dependência energética da Europa em relação ao seu vizinho russo, os 27 Estados-membros da União Europeia (UE) estão a ponderar soluções a médio prazo.

O primeiro caminho, que acaba de ser discutido numa reunião informal dos ministros da energia europeus, em Amiens, França, passa por estabelecer “regras mais rígidas sobre armazenamento de gás”, conforme indicou a ministra francesa para a Transição Ecológica, Barbara Pompili.

O modelo francês, que garante o preenchimento das reservas para o inverno, poderia, assim, ser ampliado.

Também o Luxemburgo sugeriu a assinatura de contratos de fornecimento de longo prazo com paises produtores considerados mais fiáveis ​​do que a Russia.
