Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, nominated the POTUS for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for the Israel-UAE peace deal.
President Trump has reportedly made the list! Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, nominated him for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominee," claimed Tybring-Gjedde, according to Fox News. "As it is expected other Middle Eastern countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE, this agreement could be a game changer that will turn the Middle East into a region of cooperation and prosperity," he wrote in the nomination letter.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde has nominated Trump twice (2018, 2020). He can nominate a candidate because he is a representative in the «Stortinget». Many people say Tybring-Gjedde is hateful, divisive, racist, and in no way represents the current perception of Trump by Norwegians.— Reflect (@reMirth) September 9, 2020
Furthermore, Tybring-Gjedde noted the "key role" that Trump played in establishing relations between the two nations. "[The President's] key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea," he said, praising Trump for withdrawing a considerable number of troops from the Middle East. "Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict." Comparing Trump to former President Jimmy Carter, he added, "The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter."
This isn't the first Nobel Prize nomination for Trump, who was previously nominated by the Norwegian MP and official in 2019, shortly after his Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un. Apparently, Japan’s prime minister did the same but Trump did not win. Tybring-Gjedde, who serves as chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, revealed that his nomination had nothing to do with winning the favor of the U.S. President but to respect the facts. "I’m not a big Trump supporter," he told Fox News. "The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing."
Hitler was nominated too.— Lissette (@Lissett07521957) September 9, 2020
God recognizes all good deeds and rewards so accordingly. Trump doesn’t need anything but to continue his work.— We the people. (@bucgastly) September 9, 2020
Tybring-Gjedde also said that Trump met all three conditions required to win the peace prize like "fellowship among nations", "reduction of standing armies", and his "tremendous efforts towards brokering peace" But will he win? Well, according to Trump he would "get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things, if they give it out fairly, which they don’t." Last year, when suggestions were made that Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg could win the prestigious award, Trump mourned about never getting a Nobel Prize, something he claims to be worthy of, due to the unfair process of selection. He seemed to be very hurt about the fact that former POTUS Barack Obama was awarded the prestigious accolade in 2009. "They gave one to Obama immediately upon his ascent to the presidency and he had no idea why he got it. You know what? That was the only thing I agreed with him on," said Trump. Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize "for his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," just 263 days after taking office.
sorry. what kind of peace‘s meant by forcing Israel to stop taking back the WB & to let other country stand on Jewish land by two-state solution? he always prided himself on being friend of Israel. friends never let their friends lose the property & rights. enlighten me.— sarah (@shmeysarah) September 9, 2020
When news about Trump's nomination reached Twitter, people had mixed reactions. User Paul expressed: Anyone who claims they deserve the Nobel Peace Prize, as Trump has said it himself, is usually the most undeserving of it. But user Dale Straub wrote: Canadian but lived in the UAE for many years. Watched the Zoom meeting between the Israeli and UAE youth and frankly I was so inspired I wept. Imagine! the youth of these two amazing countries talking and planning about visiting one another. Trump deserves the prize! Another @vsionarygvp shared: Anyone can be nominated, the question is will he actually get it? Some even went to the extent of comparing him to Hitler but most people provided reasons why Trump doesn't deserve the title.

In January 1939, about eight months before the invasion of Poland, Swedish Social Democratic MP Erik Brandt wrote to the Norwegian Nobel Committee to suggest the Peace Prize should be given to Hitler.https://t.co/E865FszW0V— Kengoff (@kenpgoff) September 9, 2020
Hey was nominated in 2018 by the same far right anti-immigration parliamentarian. No chance he will win. Hitler and mussolini have also been nominated— Señor Kleine (@SenorKleine) September 9, 2020

The only way the Nobel Prize can be justified is when there is peace between Israel and Palestine.— Sajid Ali Khan (@Brainwizard) September 9, 2020
How? By signing his big-ass signature on very piece of paper given to him that he doesn’t even read?— Paul (@HeathenOnEarth_) September 9, 2020
