Christian Tybring-Gjedde is the Norwegian member of parliament who nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020. Tybring-Gjedde, 57, told The Associated Press, “No matter how Trump acts at home and what he says at press conferences, he has absolutely a chance at getting the Nobel Peace Prize.”

Tybring-Gjedde said that he was nominating the president thanks to the successful peace talks between Israel and the United Arab Emirates that occurred in August 2020. Tybring-Gjedde wrote on his Facebook page, via Facebook Translate, “The agreement can open for lasting peace between several Arab countries and Israel.” He added, “It is now to hope that the Nobel Committee is able to consider what Trump has achieved internationally and that it does not stumble in established prejudice against the US President. In his will, Alfred Nobel set three criteria to qualify for the Nobel Peace Prize. Donald Trump satisfies all three.”

Tybring-Gjedde, a member of Norway’s Progress Party, has been described as being “far-right” by multiple news organizations, including the AP, CBS News and The Guardian.

TRUMP ANNOUNCES PEACE AGREEMENT BETWEEN ISRAEL, UAE Tybring-Gjedde, in his nomination letter to the Nobel Committee, said 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,” he wrote. Also cited in the letter was the president’s “key role in facilitating contact between conflicting parties and … creating new dynamics in other protracted conflicts, such as the Kashmir border dispute between India and Pakistan, and the conflict between North and South Korea, as well as dealing with the nuclear capabilities of North Korea.” Tybring-Gjedde, further, praised Trump for withdrawing a large number of troops from the Middle East. “Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter,” he wrote. This is not Trump’s first such nomination, as Tybring-Gjedde submitted one along with another Norwegian official in 2018 following the U.S. president’s Singapore summit with Kim Jong Un. Japan’s prime minister reportedly did the same. Trump did not win. Tybring-Gjedde, a member of a conservative-leaning populist party in Norway, told Fox News that his latest nomination is not about trying to curry favor with the U.S. president.2020-09-09T13:38:55Z

Here we look at the origin of this foundation and how it has grown over the years to cover every field of activity. Alfred Nobel was a pacifist and inventor. He had tutors at home and was proficient in many languages in addition to be a greatly rated chemist. He invented dynamite little thinking this would change the course of the world and its effect would be felt to this day. In 1888 when his brother dies a French newspaper inserted an obituary in his name calling him “the merchant of death”. This deeply impacted him and then he made a will instituting the Nobel Prize. Alfred Nobel bit by the travel bug went to Paris and the US and returned to Russia to work in his father’s factory. He continued to do so till his father couldn’t continue the business. Being a chemist Nobel worked on nitroglycerine and created his first explosion as early as 1862. Very soon he received a patent for his percussion detonator from the Swedish government and called it the Nobel lighter. He moved back to Sweden with his father and set up a factory there producing nitroglycerine. Producing this was a difficult task and his factory blew up soon after killing many including his brother. This setback did not deter him and soon there were other factories producing the same. He also improved on it and produced dynamite a safer to handle explosive. Alfred told Bertha von Suttner, an advocate for world peace, My factories may make an end of war sooner than your congresses. The day when two army corps can annihilate each other in one second, all civilized nations, it is to be hoped, will recoil from war and discharge their troops. * He did not live to see peace during his life time but when his will was opened people were shocked to see 94% of his earnings had been donated to the Nobel Foundation to be set up to give prizes to eminent people in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature and peace. The will created a number of problems and opened up a hornet’s nest. Many questions had been left unanswered by him and it took 5 years for the first set of Nobel prizes to be given away. An Economics prize was added and all these are given away in Sweden except the peace prize given away in Oslo Norway at a separate ceremony. The Peace Prize has the inscription for the peace and brotherhood of men while the other prizes have in them inventions enhanced life which is beautiful through art. Not more than three people can share the prize. No award is given posthumous unless the person dies after the award is announced.
