A far-right Norwegian lawmaker stated Wed. that he’s nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize for his own measures within the Middle East.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament for the far-right Progress Party, stated Trump must be discussed due to his own work (5) “for a peace settlement between the United Arab Emirates & Israel that opens up for possible peace within the Middle East.”
“No issue just how Trump acts in house & what he states in press conferences, he’s absolutely a opportunity in getting the Nobel Peace Prize,” Tybring-Gjedde, informed The Associated Press.
He stated he nominated Trump on Wed., adding that “Donald Trump meets the criteria” for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Tybring-Gjedde has been also 1 of 2 Norwegian lawmakers who nominated Trump for the peace prize in 2018 for his own measures to bring reconciliation between North & South Korea.
The procedure of discussing students & awarding the prize is finished in Norway, in contrast to the different Nobel Prizes, that are awarded in neighbouring Sweden. Nominations should be sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee by February. 1.
The Norwegian Nobel Committee doesn’t publicly comment on nominees. Under its regulations, the info is needed to be kept secret for 50 yrs..
“It’s as of now to hope that the Nobel Committee is able to discuss what Trump has achieved internationally & that it doesn’t stumble in well-established prejudice over the US President,” Tybring-Gjedde stated in a Facebook(FB) post.
