President Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace prize as he helped to broker the peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Trump was nominated by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, who is a member of the Norwegian Parliament, and praised his efforts in trying to resolve worldwide conflicts.
Speaking to Fox News, Tybring-Gjedde said, “For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
He added that President Trump’s administration played key roles in relations between Israel and UAE.
Tybring-Gjedde wrote in his nomination letter, “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 added, “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.
“The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter.”
