The BBC reports:
A nomination made for US President Donald Trump to receive the Nobel Peace Prize was potentially fraudulent, according to the awarding committee. The Norwegian committee has filed a report with police over its concerns.
Mr Trump was reportedly nominated for his “ideology of peace by force” by an anonymous American. The director of the Nobel Institute said there were concerns that Mr Trump’s nomination may have been falsified.
“I can say that we have good reason to believe that [the nomination of Mr Trump] is a fake,” Nobel Institute Director Olav Njølstad told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “The same ‘fake’ nomination probably took place last year too,” Mr Njølstad said.
