US President, Donald Trump, has been  nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize for his immense efforts in reaching the agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

The Nobel Peace Prize is one of five Nobel Prizes, alongside Physiology or Medicine, Literature, Chemistry and Physics. 


The winner is selected by a panel of five members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee which is appointed by the Parliament of Norway.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament and chairman to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, submitted Trump’s nomination.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News.

Also the Israel-UAE deal, the nomination letter to the Nobel Committee cited Trump’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties… such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea.” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News on Wednesday morning, September 9.

Tybring-Gjedde also revealed he is “not a big Trump supporter.” but compared to Obama who won in 2009 Trump has done a lot to foster peace in the world.

“The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes,” he continued. 

“The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump.

“For example, Barack Obama did nothing,” he said to Fox News, referring to former US president Barack Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize 

The Nobel Peace prize committee in 2009 said the reason for awarding Obama the award was his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.”

The prize will be awarded on December 10, 2020
