Donald Trump nominated for 2018 Nobel Peace Prize


President Donald Trump of the United States of America was yesterday nominated for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize.

According to Henrik Urdal, who is the Director of the Peace Research Institute Norway, the argument made for Trump was similar to last year’s, citing Trump’s “peace through strength ideology.”

“It has been awarded 98 times to those who have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations.

“It is also for the abolition or reduction of standing armies, and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.

“Trump has been nominated by an American,” he said.

The nomination ended on Wednesday, but the five-strong Norwegian Nobel Committee is yet to formally register all the nominees and can add their own proposals when they will meet at the end of February.

The Nobel Peace Prize was endowed by Swedish industrialist and inventor, Alfred Nobel and was first handed out in 1901.
