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.”
