I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump himself was behind this forgery:
Someone in the United States really wanted to Donald Trump to win the Nobel Peace Prize, and reportedly submitted a forged nomination for him to receive the prize – two forged nominations, in fact.
As The New York Times reported, police in Oslo, Norway, have launched an investigation after receiving a pair of nominations from someone in the United States for Trump to win the esteemed honor. The nomination committee announced the apparent forgery this week, which has now attracted the attention of both the Oslo police and the FBI.
We already know that Trump asked the Japanese government to promote his claim on the peace prize:
Just as President Donald Trump claimed last week, Japan’s prime minister has, indeed, nominated Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize — at the request of the White House — one of Japan’s largest newspapers reported Sunday.
Trump boasted at a news conference on Friday that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had given him a copy of a five-page letter he’d sent to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, which selects the annual Peace Prize laureates.
Referring to Abe, Trump said: “He said: ‘I have nominated you, respectfully, on behalf of Japan. I am asking them to give you the Nobel Peace Prize.’ I said, ‘Thank you.'”
The national newspaper Asahi Shimbun, citing multiple Japanese government sources, reported Sunday that the U.S. government “informally” asked Japan to nominate Trump after he met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last year.
