Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize



Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, has nominated President Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News that Trump's role in brokering peace negotiations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was a major achievement for a U.S. president.


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

When nominating Trump, Tybring-Gjedde told the Nobel Committee that the deal could precipitate several other peace deals between Israel and other countries, and that Trump's negotiation was a "game changer"in the Middle East.

"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 wrote.

Tybring-Gjedde also applauded Trump's effort to minimize the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and the president's larger effort to avoid new wars.


"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,” Tybring-Gjedde wrote.


Tybring-Gjedde is a member of Norwegian's libertarian Progress Party and is not necessarily a Trump fan. But he believes the Israel-UAE deal was more important to world peace than anything that President Barack Obama did prior to winning his Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

"I’m not a big Trump supporter,” Tybring-Gjedde said. “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," he added. "For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”


White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said of Trump's nomination for the Nobel prize, "This president has created peace around the world, drew down endless wars. This is a president who is very much deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize."
