Donald Trump, President of the United States of America has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, TopNaija reports.
This came after Trump helped broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates in August.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, who submitted Trump’s nomination said he has done more to create peace than most other Peace Prize nominees.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, told Fox News.
This is the second time Tybring-Gjedde submitted a nomination for Trump. The first was in 2018, following the US president’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump, however, lost the award to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde has since defended his submission of U.S. President Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. According to him, the peace prize is to recognise Trump’s efforts toward resolving longstanding conflicts across the world.
Donald John Trump is the 45th and current president of the United States, and the Republican Party nominee for the 2020 presidential election. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and television personality. Trump was born and raised in Queens, a borough of New York City.
