Former president Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by Norwegian far right politician, Christian Tybring-Gjedde
A Norweigan law maker and politician has nominated former president Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize 2021, for his efforts to normalize the relationship between Israel and UAE.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, from the far right Progress Party, had put forward his name, citing the peace deal brokered by the U.S. between the two countries. He had proposed Trump's name for the second time. Tybring-Gjedde also put his name forward for the 2018 Singapore summit, which hosted Kim Jong-un. Tybring-Gjedde said that Trump had done more than any other nominee to create peace between the two nations in conflict.
Bloomberg reported that there were 318 candidates, of which about two-thirds are individuals and the rest organizations. Other names include WHO and climate campaigner Greta Thunberg.
