Who would have thought the Nobel Peace Prize could be scammed.
In yet another questionable move coming by way of the President, new reports suggest that his Nobel Peace Prize nomination is a little suspicious, for the second year in a row, because no one knows who nominated Mr. Donald Trump.
BBC News reports that an anonymous American nominated Donald for his "ideology of peace by force." The director of the prize raised concerns over the nomination claiming that it could be falsified, leading the committee to file a police report.
"I can say that we have good reason to believe that [the nomination of Mr Trump] is a fake," Nobel Institute Director Olav Njølstad said. "The same 'fake' nomination probably took place last year too." Nominations for the prestigious award must be handed in by January 31st and the winners are announced in October. Those who can nominate a prospect include professors, members of parliament and government and former laureates.
In 2009 former president Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples."
The prize doesn't have to be awarded to a particular person, in 2012 the European Union received the prize for transforming Europe "from a continent of war to a continent of peace".
