Donald Trump Has Been Nominated For The 2021 Nobel Peace Award, For The UAE-Israel Deal.

For his role in brokering an agreement between Israel and the UAE, Donald Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

According to sources, Christian Tybring-Gjedde-a right-wing Norwegian politician-nominated the President of the United States.

He said 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."

Adding that 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".

Speaking to Fox News later, Mr Tybring-Gjedde said: "For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees."

And although he said he wasn't a big Trump's fan, Mr Tybring-Gjedde said he deserved to be eligible for the esteemed awarding.

He added: "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," he said, referring to Obama's Nobel Peace Prize win in 2009.

Anyone can be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, as long as they follow the requirement needed.

For example, only a person or institution who has already been given the prize, a university professor, a cabinet official, members of the International Court of Justice, the Institut de Droit International, or current and former members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee may make an appointment.

These appointments will then go to the Norwegian Nobel Committee's five representatives-elected by the Storting (Norwegian parliament)-in February, who will vote on the candidates based on their results. These applicants are then evaluated by a committee of advisors.

Until a study has been finished, in October, the Nobel Committee picks the Nobel laureates for this year. The selected Laureates would then receive their honour at a December ceremony in Oslo.

It was revealed earlier this year that Greta Thunberg was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her work on tackling climate change.

Swedish politicians Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, from the country's left party, have put forward the teenager.

Speaking at the time, they said: "Greta Thunberg is a climate activist, and the main reason she deserves the Nobel Peace Prize is that despite her young age, she has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.

"The climate crisis will produce new conflicts and ultimately wars. Action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace."
