Donald Trump Has Been Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize



Monday may not have been a great day for Donald Trump following the Iowa caucus results, but news emerging Tuesday may bring him cheer.

Somebody out there nominated him for the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize.

Kristian Berg Harpviken, director of the Peace Research Institute in Oslo and watcher of such award activity told news outlets that Trump was among those suggested for consideration.

Each year, the Norwegian Nobel Peace Prize panel accepts letters of recommendation and usually receives over 200 endorsements.

A proposal that Trump become this year's recipient is said to cite the candidate's, "...vigorous peace through strength ideology, used as a threat weapon of deterrence against radical Islam, Isis, nuclear Iran and Communist China."

The person behind the nomination hails from the U.S., but his or her name is unknown.
