The news surprised everyone this Wednesday, September 9: US President Donald Trump has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize.

The Norwegian praised the US president’s commitment to the « historic peace deal » reached between Israel and the United Arab Emirates last month. Last week, Donald Trump also spoke at the Serbia-Kosovo summit, organized at the White House. The American president was then delighted about a possible « great peace in the Middle East ». Serbia subsequently announced that it would move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. null
Barack Obama rewarded in 2009
In practice, the nominations proposed for this distinction must be reasoned and detailed. Tybring-Gjedde thus believes that Donald Trump validates the three criteria necessary for the nomination of a Nobel Peace Prize: « The first is brotherhood between nations and he did so through negotiations, » the « reduction standing armies « (in particular following the withdrawal of American troops from the Middle East) and the » promotion of peace congresses « .
Several hundred proposals are issued each year, but only 199 of them will be accepted. Donald Trump’s candidacy will be considered and the proposal made by Christian Tybring-Gjedde will simply be considered by a committee appointed by the Norwegian parliament. The last American president to have received the distinction was no other Barack Obama, rewarded in 2009, « for his extraordinary efforts in favor of the reinforcement of the diplomacy and the international cooperation between the peoples ».
