US President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, it emerged on Wednesday, September 9.
He was nominated by right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde and his selection is in relation to the ‘historic peace agreement’ between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
Tybring-Gjedde told FoxNews;
For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.
He said in his nomination letter;
As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity.
Tybring-Gjedde also discussed;
President Trump’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.
He added that Trump had withdrawn many US soldiers from the Middle East, stressing;
Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter.
His nomination comes about a year after Donald Trump said he deserves a Nobel Prize for “a lot of things” he has done.
I think I’m going to get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things, if they gave it out fairly, which they don’t. They gave it out — well, they gave one to Obama immediately upon his ascent to the presidency, and he had no idea why he got it. And you know what? That was the only thing I agreed with him on.
Those up for the prestigious award – whose past winners include Malala Yousafzai and Nelson Mandela – are usually kept secret, unless those who nominate them decide to go public.
Those eligible to nominate someone for the Nobel Peace Prize are public figures, including national politicians, professors and former prize winners.
In February and March each year, nominations are shortlisted and the winners will then be announced in October.
