Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

US President Donald Trump has been nominated for 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

The US president’s name has been put forward by Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde, according to Fox News.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Mr Tybring-Gjedde, a four-term member of parliament, told the channel.

Earlier, Barack Obama won the Nobel Prize in 2009 for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between people”.

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.
