A member of the Norwegian Parliament, Christian Tybring-Gjedde, has nominated the U.S. President, Donald Trump, for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday, following the normalization agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israeli occupation, according to Fox News.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News.

“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,” Tybring-Gjedde wrote in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee.
