Controversial US president, Donald Trump has surprisingly been nominated for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize award.

Reports say Trump was nominated by an unidentified American who wants the controversial leader recognised for “his peace through strength ideology”.

The names of the nominees are usually kept secret but those entitled to nominate candidates are free to reveal the name of the person or group they have nominated.

Announcing his nomination and that of others, the Nobel Institute said on Thursday, that Trump and Pope Francis will vie for the award alongside 316 other people and organisations that are in the race for this year’s award.

Last year, the prize went to Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos for his efforts to bring peace to his country ravaged by a half-century of conflict.

      You are foolish. So you want Trump to tolerate injurious people like you who believe in erroneous Islam of killing people. I even want Trump to get rid of Moslems all over the world if possible.
