President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize following his efforts to help seal a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
He was nominated by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of the Norwegian Parliament, who told Fox News that for his merit, Trump deserved it. Gjedde said, “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
On Tuesday, a White House official announced Trump will hold a signing ceremony on 15 September for a groundbreaking Middle East agreement normalising relations between Israel and the UAE.
As part of the deal, announced at the White House on 13 August following what officials said were 18 months of talks, the Gulf state agreed to normal relations with Israel, while Israel agreed to continue with plans to suspend its annexation of the West Bank.
In 2020, there were 318 candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize. Submissions must be made online and all nominees are discussed before a shortlist of the most worthy and interesting is drawn up.
This is not the first time Mr Trump has been nominated for the prize. In 2018, Mr Tybring-Gjedde submitted his name following his Singapore summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, however the US president did not win.
