Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a far-right Norwegian politician has put Mr Trump's name forward for the 2021 prize, citing the president's role in the recent peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

In 2018, the right-wing politician was one of two Norwegian lawmakers to nominate Mr Trump for the same prize, then for his efforts to bring reconciliation to North and South Korea.

For a nomination alone, the barrier to entry is low: all nominations from heads of state or politicians serving at a national level are accepted.

University professors, directors of foreign policy institutes, past recipients of a Nobel Prize and members of the Norwegian Nobel Committee are also among those deemed qualified to submit a nomination for the prize. The nominations require no invitation and as long they are entered before 1 February of the qualifying year, they will be accepted.

For the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize - the winner of which has not yet been announced - there were 318 candidates. The Norwegian Nobel Committee doesn't publicly comment on its nominees, which are kept secret for 50 years.

We won't know the winner for another 13 months.

Adolf Hitler was nominated for the peace prize in 1939 by a member of the Swedish parliament. A few years later, the Soviet leader Josef Stalin was nominated for the same award, twice, in 1945, and again in 1948.
I remain unimpressed by the award, the nominees for it and many of the "winners" .....

Re: Peace Prize

In a word - yes. If for no other reason than for not being Barack Hussein. Now there WAS a warmonger but one who conducted his machinations under the table. But in addition this POTUS has brought an underlying longstanding and worsening matter into the open.

It's not nice, it's going to get worse before it stands a chance of getting better but like some cancers, if it's not brought into the open and tackled it will just get worse and worse and yes, I am referring to all this BLM and ANTIFA rubbish and all it involves.

Re: Peace Prize

I agree AD

Trump is all bluster but doesnít actually start wars.

I could never quite understand why Obama got the peace prize before he had actually done anything

donít get me wrong I liked Barrack Obama .

Who doesnít ?

Heís smooth handsome and so politically correct itís like he has been invented . ( sometimes I think he was )

Half black half white ( but with no disturbing slave connections )

A genuine African American .

Perfect family man with wife and kiddies .

Engaging personality perfect diction .

Could have modelled for Armani .

Whatís not to like ?
