A far-right Norwegian politician and lawmaker conveyed Wednesday that he has nominated President Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for helping to broker a deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
‘For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,’ Tybring-Gjedde said to Fox News.
He also mentioned the president’s ‘key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.’
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted ‘I am proud to leave for Washington next week at the invitation of President Trump and to participate in the historic ceremony at the White House on the establishment of a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates’.
Tybring-Gjedde told, ‘In his will, Alfred Nobel set three criteria to qualify for the Nobel Peace Prize. Donald Trump satisfies all three’.
The Nobel Committee does not reveal the names of nominees, to the media or the candidates themselves. Information in the Nobel Committee’s nomination database is not made public until after 50 years.
Till now, four U.S. presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize – Theodore Roosevelt in 1906, Woodrow Wilson in 1920, Jimmy Carter in 2002, and Barack Obama in 2009.
The 2021 Nobel winner is expected to be announced in October next year; we will have to wait to know whether President Donald Trump can be the next U.S. president to win the award.
