Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Vastavam Web: United States President Donald Trump has been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize 2021 for his role in brokering a deal between Israel and United Arab Emirates, according to reports. The nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norwegian parliamentarian to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly. “It is for his contribution for peace between Israel and the UAE. It is a unique deal,” Christian Tybring-Gjedde told Reuters.

“No matter how Trump acts at home and what he says at press conferences, he has absolutely a chance at getting the Nobel Peace Prize,” Tybring-Gjedde, told The Associated Press. Earlier, Tybring-Gjedde nominated Trump for the award for his diplomatic efforts with North Korea. Last year Trump said he deserved to be awarded the Peace Prize for his work on North Korea and Syria, but he complained he probably would never get the honour.

Last month, Trump took to Twitter to announce the “historic deal” struck between Israel and UAE, one which the United States had helped broker. The Norwegian Nobel Committee doesn’t publicly comment on nominees. Under its rules, the information is required to be kept secret for 50 years. Israel and the United Arab Emirates on August 13 struck a historic deal aimed at fully normalising relations between the two Middle Eastern nations. The announcement of the deal, which the United States helped broker, was made by US President Donald Trump.

“HUGE breakthrough today! Historic Peace Agreement between our two GREAT friends, Israel and the United Arab Emirates,” Trump tweeted. Under the peace deal, Israel has agreed to suspend declaring sovereignty over the areas outlined in Trump’s ‘Vision for Peace’.
