Donald Trump had been nominated earlier as well by a Norwegian far-right MP for the Nobel peace prize for the way he has been into normalising things between The United Arab Emirates and Israel. Christian Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News: “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other peace prize nominees.”
The Norwegian far-right MP also stated in his nomination letter that he also expects the other Middle East countries to learn and follow the game changing decision UAE took towards prosperity and cooperation.
Trump’s response on Twitter was by saying Thank you to his nomination for Nobel Peace prize 2021. Though the chances are low but there is a lot of buzz against why Trump has been nominated in the first place? For 2020 there were 318 candidates and they looked into each one’s politician serving deeds.
Trump was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 as well
Christian Tybring-Gjedde was one of two Norwegian politicians who had nominated Trump on the basis of his efforts to make things better between South and North Korea. Whereas the committee did not comment on the nominees as there is a rule to keep it a secret for 50 years. But it was in news that from the House of Representatives a group of Republicans had pushed or rather sent an open letter to the Nobel Peace Committee pushing Trump’s nomination even for the next year.
The other previous US recipients of the Prize includes:
– Barack Obama in 2009 for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”.
– Woodrow Wilson in 1920 for his efforts in ending the first world war and part in creating the League of Nations.
– Jimmy Carter in 2002
– Al Gore in 2007 for his efforts to spread knowledge about climate change.
