Christian Tybring-Gjedde he told Fox News“All efforts that lead to peace in this region must be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and also to Donald J. Trump.”

Any head of state or member of a national government may submit a candidate, and hundreds go out for the famous distinction every year. The rules also allow university professors and directors of foreign policy institutes to nominate candidates, The BBC reported.
Trump celebrated the recognition on Twitter by reposting a series of congratulatory messages from the Conservatives on Wednesday morning.
