A Norwegian lawmaker submitted the name of US President Donald Trump as a nominee for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, Fox News reported.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norweigian Parliament member told Fox News that Trump “has done more” in creating peace “between nations than most Peace Prize nominees.”
According to him, recent Peace Prize winners “have done much less” than Trump.
Tybring-Gjedde, a member of a right-leaning party in Norway praised Trump’s “key role” in establishing the deal with Israel and UAE.
The deal Tybring-Gjedde is talking about will normalize the relationship between Israel and the UAE.
Trump will sign the peace deal at a signing ceremony on September 15th, at the White House.
The UAE-Israel agreement “could be a game changer,” Tybring-Gjedded wrote in his nomination letter.
It might also “turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity,” he argued.
In his nomination letter, Tybring-Gjedde also listed down Trump’s “key role” in enabling contact with different conflicting parties.
The list includes the India and Pakistan, and North and South Korea dispute.
The lawmaker also added Trump’s “dealing” with North Korea’s “nuclear capabilities” and his withdrawal of US troops from the Middle East.
In his letter, Tybring-Gjedde also compared Trump with former US Presidents.
According to him, US Presidents for the past thirty-nine years had either started a war or brought the United States into an “international armed conflict.”
Trump should be judged “on the facts,” said Tybring-Gjedde.
“Not on the way he behaves sometimes.”
Former US President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, while former Vice President Al Gore won it in 2007.
Not The First Nomination
This is not the first time that Trump was nominated for a Peace Prize Award.
Two years ago, the same Norwegian lawmaker and another nominated Trump for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination came after Trump signed an agreement with North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-Un.
The deal talks about the denuclearization of North Korea.
