US President Donald Trump's name has been suggested for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize due to a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. According to US news channel Fox News, Christian Tybring Gjedde, a Norwegian Parliamentarian, has sent the nomination. Christian Tybring-Gjedde said, while speaking to Fox News, "I think he (Trump) has made a lot more efforts to establish peace between the countries than the rest of the nominees." Earlier in 2018, he has done the same thing.

At that time, holding a summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was described as Trump's achievement, and better relations between North Korea and the United States were also called an essential step for peace in the world. However, Trump was not selected for the Peace Prize after the nomination. Then, in 2019, when Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for peace efforts with the neighboring country of Eritrea, Trump also refused to formally congratulate him and said that he had done the real work for establishing peace between the two African countries.

More than 300 individuals and institutions have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020. Such a large number of nominations have never been seen for this award before. Anyone can send nominations for this award, and the Nobel Committee does not release any formal list of nominees for the Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Committee in Norway discusses all these nominations and chooses the winner. The 2021 Nobel Peace Prize will be announced in October next year. Before Trump, Barack Obama, who was president of the United States, has received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.
