Donald Trump has created more buzz on social media after a Norwegian lawmaker nominated him for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Progress Party in the Norwegian Parliament, said Trump should be considered for helping to broker a deal between Israel and the UAE. This might usher in peace in the Middle East, he suggested.
“It is for his contribution for peace between Israel and the UAE. It is a unique deal. No matter how Trump acts at home and what he says at press conferences, he has absolutely a chance at getting the Nobel Peace Prize,” Tybring-Gjedde told Metro.
Since the nomination, internet users have taken to Twitter to express their views. While some users congratulated Trump, others poked fun at the announcement.
“OK, now 2020 is officially bat-s**t crazy,” a Twitter user said. “Why in the hell would you nominate a guy who spent a month bragging about passing an Alzheimer’s exam?” another wrote.

Fact: Trump deserves the Nobel far more than did Obama, who won one for the great accomplishment of being a breathing human https://t.co/NlZs7JJ724— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 9, 2020
Trump being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by far-right anti-immigration nut job Christian Tybring-Gjedde is like getting a letter of recommendation to be a firefighter by a pyromaniac or like, you know, being endorsed for President by Osama Bin Laden’s niece Noor Bin Laden.— Eugene Gu, MD (@eugenegu) September 9, 2020
