Donald Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his role in brokering a peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a right-wing member of the Norwegian parliament, put forward the nomination, telling Fox News:
“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees.”
Under Nobel Peace Prize rules, any member of a national parliament can nominate a candidate for the award.
In his nomination letter to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, Tybring-Gjedde claimed the Trump administration had played a pivotal role in peace talks between the two nations.
“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.
The news comes amid rumours that Eric Trump might be considering running for presidency.
The third child of the 45th POTUS “liked” a tweet in response to one of his own.
In a tweet claiming Joe Biden and the Democrats are going to “cheat” at the 3 November election (without explicitly detailing how), Eric wrote:
We all know that that Biden doesn’t have a snowball’s chance to win, which is why the democrats will cheat — they always do. We would love your help – Volunteer to be a Trump Election Poll Watcher today! Let’s #KeepAmericaGreat https://t.co/pcZHumr5YU— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) September 8, 2020
One person responded, “46th POTUS Eric Trump”, which subsequently sent social media into meltdown when the president’s son ‘liked’ the reply.
Bill Rachel said: “My dog is smarter than Eric Trump”, while John Painz responded: “If this happens, and I remember my bible, I think locusts are what comes next.”
Since you are here

Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
