Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize by right-wing Norwegian MP for Israel-UAE deal

Thousands of people are eligible to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize, including members of parliaments and governments, university professors and past laureates.

Just weeks after helping to broker peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), President Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

As part of the deal with UAE, Israel agreed to suspend its planned annexation of areas of the occupied West Bank in return of full normalisation of relations with the Gulf nation. In 2018, he and fellow Progress Party member Per-Willy Amundsen threw Trump's name into the ring for his diplomacy with North Korea.

In his letter to the Nobel committee, the Norwegian parliamentarian said that Trump's administration had played a significant role in improving the relations between the UAE and Israel.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee, which decides on the award, declined to comment.

Chelsea FC set to offer £20m for 28-year-old goalkeeper
Mendy's arrival will take Chelsea's summer spending close to £250m and they will look to offset such an outlay with outgoings. And the London outfit are not done yet with a goalkeeper and Declan Rice in Lampard's sights.

"No matter how Trump acts at home and what he says at press conferences, he has absolutely a chance at getting the Nobel Peace Prize", Tybring-Gjedde, told The Associated Press. Under its rules, the information is required to be kept secret for 50 years.

The deal infuriated the Palestinians and eroded a longstanding Arab position that normalization with Israel will only come after the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved.

Oman, Bahrain, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia are among the countries that Israel and the U.S. hope could follow the UAE in forging diplomatic ties with the Jewish state.

"The accord reached between the United States, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on August 13, 2020, is a courageous step toward a more stable, integrated, and prosperous Middle East. For example, Barack Obama did nothing".

Earlier, three other presidents have won the peace prize, which includes Barack Obama, Woodrow Wilson, Jimmy Carter and Theodore Roosevelt. The victor of the award will be announced in October this year.
