The nomination comes from Christian Tybring-Gjedde who is a member of the Norwegian Parliament.
Tybring-Gjedde in his nomination letter said that the Trump administration has played a key role in the establishment of relations between Israel and the UAE. “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.”
In an interview with FOX News Radio‘s White House Correspondent Jon Decker, Tybring-Gjedde said that: “I’m not a big Trump supporter. The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts – not on the way he behaves sometimes. The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. For example, Barack Obama did nothing.”
