Not a Joke: Jared Kushner Was Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize

Donald Trump spent his four years obsessing about the Nobel prize. He essentially demanded to be given the award, which he frequently misspelled as noble. Barack Obama received the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2009. This was likely the reason for Trump’s passion.

When he first took office, Trump tasked his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, with making peace in the Middle East. Kushner, obviously, did not achieve that goal, but Alan Dershowitz still feels he is due for some recognition. The Trump lawyer recently nominated Kushner for the Nobel Prize.

Dershowitz also nominated Avi Berkowitz for the honor. The Guardian reports, “Kushner and Berkowitz, who was the Middle East envoy, were key figures in negotiating deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.”

The report continues:

“The two former deputies to then-President Donald Trump were nominated by American attorney Alan Dershowitz, who was eligible to do so in his capacity as a professor emeritus of Harvard Law School. Dershowitz defended Trump in his first impeachment trial last year and told the Wall Street Journal on 20 January that the Senate should dismiss the article of impeachment against the former president, as he was no longer in office.”

Kushner and Berkowitz’s nominations do not mean that they will actually win the award. Trump was nominated on multiple occasions during his time in the White House.
