In another news report, reactions are trailing President Trump's announcement of its reported third Nobel Peace Prize nomination.
The president of the United States made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday, September 29.
Trump's first nomination was in 2018 by Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a Norwegian politician for his efforts to bring reconciliation to North and South Korea.
The US president's second nomination for the 2021 prize was also by Tybring-Gjedde, citing the president's role in the recent peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Meanwhile, ahead of the November 2020 presidential election in the US, President Trump and his siblings are facing a lawsuit courtesy of his niece, Mary Trump.
