Trump took credit for Ethiopian PM's Nobel Prize because he confused Eritrea with Egypt

Trump took credit for Ethiopian PM's Nobel Prize because he confused Eritrea with Egypt

They both start with the letter “E” and they’re both in Africa. That’s close enough, eggheads! What, you expect the actual president of the United States to know the difference? Go jerk off to a world atlas, nerds!

So at his skinhead rally* on Thursday night, Donald Trump took credit for Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed’s 2019 Nobel Peace Prize, saying, “I made a deal, I saved a country, and I just heard that the head of that country is now getting the Nobel Peace Prize for saving the country. I said, ‘What, did I have something do with it?’ Yeah. But that’s the way it is.”

The Washington Post:

[H]is comments Thursday included a remark that caught the attention of many in Ethiopia, whose prime minister was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, largely for his work securing a peace deal with neighboring Eritrea after decades of hostilities.

...

Trump played no apparent role in the Eritrea peace deal, but Washington has played a convening role in another deal Ethio­pian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is seeking with Egypt that will regulate how quickly Ethi­o­pia can fill a new dam it has built in the upper reaches of the Nile River that has major implications for the flow of water Egypt relies on economically.
