WASHINGTON – President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for the second time this week – this time for mediating a historic peace agreement between Serbia and the breakaway republic of Kosovo.
In a tweet on Friday morning, Magnus Jacobson, a member of the Swedish parliament, announced that he was nominating the Trump administration and the two European countries for their “working together for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House.”
“Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace,” Jacobson wrote in a letter to the Nobel Committee.
On Wednesday, the president was nominated for the prestigious award by a member of the Norwegian parliament for supporting the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
“For his merits, I think he has made more attempts to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees,” Christian Tibring-Jedde told Fox News.
According to the official Nobel website, there were 318 candidates for the 2020 Peace Prize. The winner of the 2021 Prize will not be announced until October next year.
Trump hosted the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo last Friday to sign a landmark agreement on economic normalization.
