US leader, Donald Trump has been nominated again for the Nobel Peace Prize, for a historic deal between Serbia and Kosovo.

 

Trump was first nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize on Wednesday September 9, for achieving a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

 

Swedish Parliament member Magnus Jacobsson announced the second nomination of Trump in a letter shared on social media on Saturday September 12.

“I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House,” Jacobsson wrote.

“Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” he added.

The nomination comes days after Trump was made a candidate for the same prize, by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a right-wing member of the Norwegian Parliament.

“For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Tybring-Gjedde told  Fox News.

 

He said others “who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump. 

 

Some people have been critical of Trump being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and called for an end to the award.

 

Graeme Wood, a staff writer at The Atlantic, claimed in an article: “The record of achievement of the peace laureates is so spotty, and the rationales for their awards so eclectic, that the committee should take a long break to consider whether peace is a category coherent enough to be worth recognizing.

“Peace had its chance, and blew it. The Trump nomination—one of hundreds, including this second from a Swede—helps show why,” Wood wrote.
