President Donald Trump at Improved Odds to Win 2021 Nobel Peace Prize Following Nomination.
Donald Trump has defied the odds to return to the running for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize after the President of the United States was nominated for the award by Norwegian far-right politician, Christian Tybring-Gjedde.
Trump, 74, is largely considered to be a divisive figure rather than one focused on unification, but his contribution to brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates has earned him a second Nobel nomination.
Last time, Trump's odds were 75 (or +1400), three positions ahead of Russian president Vladimir Putin at the time. On this occasion, AmericanGambler suggests odds of 12 (+400), putting him among the top three candidates for the prize.

Other foreign policy point-winners for Trump include having a hand in the peace agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, as well as opening a dialogue with North Korea, the feat that saw him added to the 2019 ballot.
Tybring-Gjedde—who, along with another Norwegian politician, was also responsible for Trump’s previous Nobel nomination—said in his letter to the Nobel Committee (via Fox News): “Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter.”
Four U.S. Presidents have been given the Nobel Peace Prize in the past. Those are Theodore Roosevelt (1906), Woodrow Wilson (1919), Jimmy Carter (2002, post-presidency) and most recently Barack Obama (2009), just nine months after he took up office at the White House.
Trump’s odds may have fallen due to his extended exploits in foreign policy, though many will consider his contributions in furthering other social divides will prevent him from collecting.
Donald Trump nominated for 2021 Nobel Peace Prize. Last year his chances were low, he was just 3 positions ahead of Vladimir Putin with odds +1400 (75). Trump's chances to win Nobel Peace Prize are looking good for 2021. Why: 1) Kosovo-Serbia Deal, 2) Trump was the first US president to start a dialog with the North Korean leader, 3) Historical United Arab Emirates-Israel deal-signed in the White House.
