President of the United States Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace prize 2021. The key aspects of his nomination include brokering the Abraham Accords and bringing about normalization with Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
“This is a hard earned and well-deserved honour for this president,” White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Wednesday. “Career politicians merely talk about the kind of results that this president has achieved on the world stage.”
Donald Trump’s winning the Nobel Peace Prize had a 100-01 shot however, with the nomination by anti-immigration Norwegian lawmakers, the odds have improved.
The Progress Party’s Christian Tybring-Gjedde, in an interview on Fox News, cited the peace deal brokered by the U.S. between Israel and the UAE as the reason for the nomination.
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde said.
“Donald Trump’s shock inclusion has seen the odds of him winning the prize he has craved for so long fall significantly,” Betfair’s Sam Rosbottom, an online bookie said in a statement. “And now in a year where he is an 11/10 shot to win re-election, it’s impossible to rule him out entirely.”
The White House in a statement released on President Donald Trump Nobel Prize nomination said: “This peace deal is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of President Trump, and he is honored to be considered by the Nobel Committee.”
