US President Donald Trump has reportedly been nominated for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts at resolving worldwide conflicts, specifically brokering the “historic peace agreement” between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
President Trump has been nominated by right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde, who reportedly stated in his nomination letter that Trump achieved ‘new dynamics in protracted conflicts’ including North & South Korea, and Kashmir in India.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde is known for his critical views on Islam, his support for anti-immigration, and for once comparing hijabs to Ku Klux Klan and Nazi outfits.
Naturally, social media had a lot to say about the nomination.
Trump nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize… there really is no irony left is there. A man bereft of intelligence, honour and compassion worthy of nothing but scorn and ignominious incarceration or exile. pic.twitter.com/PdhYEIbiPP

Donald Trump nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for helping Israel-UAE peace deal. But what about his instigation against Blacks? It’s a cruel joke with Black community.

I just got a push notification from an Israeli news site that Trump is a nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize because of UAE-Israel peace. When will people get that it is REALLY EASY to nominate someone for the Nobel? It’s almost meaningless.

Can anyone recommend a good UFO cult for me to join? Similar to Heaven’s Gate but with better footwear.

Donald Trump being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize whilst US citizens are being murdered in the streets by the state is just so on point for how messed up we are as a species.

Trump, or the Nobel Prize committee, is yet to respond to the nomination. Currently, the USA is witnessing one of the most widespread protests in recent history, with people demanding an end to institutionalized racism and racial profiling by police forces.
