President Trump has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by a Norwegian lawmaker, the Associated Press reports.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament, believes Trump should be considered because of his work “for a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel which opens up for possible peace in the Middle East.”
While President Trump has done more to deserve the Nobel Peace Prize than Barack Obama, don’t expect him to be a contender for the award. “Three of the four prize-winning American presidents have been Democrats: Obama, Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter,” explained Mary Kay Linge in the New York Post last year. “The sole Republican is Theodore Roosevelt, who won it in 1906 as a progressive whose outlook bears little resemblance to that of today’s GOP.”
