A Norwegian member of parliament has nominated Donald Trump for Nobel Peace Prize for 2021.
According to him, this is because Trump helped mediate a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
This is the second time that Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of parliament in Norway, has nominated the American president for the honor.
The Norwegian Nobel Prize committee, which decides on the award, did not want to comment on Trump’s nomination.
“This is for his contribution to peace between Israel and the UAE. “This is a unique agreement,” Tybring-Gjedde told Reuters.
Tybring-Gjedde, who also nominated Trump for the 2019 Nobel Prize for his diplomatic efforts with North Korea, said he also recommended him this year on the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq.
Trump said last year he deserved the award for his work with North Korea and Syria, but also said the honor would probably never fall to him.
