We don’t know exactly what this says about our country or our politics but somehow Donald Trump has been nominated by an anonymous U.S. politician for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Once you pick your jaw up off the floor, or stop shouting at your computer, we want to reassure you that this ACTUALLY happened and is NOT a joke.
Kristian Berg Harpviken, the director of the Peace Research Institute, confirmed the nomination to Telegraph, saying:
“I have committed not to reveal the identity of the nominator, but what I can say is that the nominator has shared a copy of his nomination letter directly with me, that the nominator has a position which gives him the right to nominate, and that I consider it valid.”
Apparently the letter that Harpviken received praises Trump’s approach to foreign policy calling it:
“… a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ Isil], nuclear Iran and Communist China.”
While we don’t have any more information on
what lunatic who nominated the 69-year-old, at least we have the answer to the question, “Is there anyone crazier than Donald?”
Kristian also revealed two other nominees on the list — U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. They received nominations for their roles in making the nuclear deal with Iran.
What do you think of Trump’s nomination??
