US President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
The nomination was submitted by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament.
Trump helped broker a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates in August.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of parliament who also serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly said.
Tybring-Gjedde also submitted a nomination for Trump in 2018, following the US president’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump did not win the award.
