The New York Post reports:
Former White House adviser and Donald Trump son-in-law Jared Kusher has been nominated for the Nobel Prize for his work as a leading negotiator of the Abraham Accords. The nomination was submitted by Long Island GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin — who also nominated Kushner’s deputy Avi Berkowitz.
Kushner and Berkowitz were also nominated for the prize last year by former Trump attorney Alan Dershowitz. “The Abraham Accords, signed in 2020, represent the most significant diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and Arab nations in decades,” Zeldin wrote in his nomination, a copy of which was obtained by The Post.

Last week Zeldin held a black tie $25,000 per person fundraiser at Mar-A-Lago in support of his bid for New York governor.
Rudy Giuliani’s son Andrew Giuliani is also running and Trump has not yet made an endorsement.
Zeldin’s Nobel Prize ploy is doubtlessly meant to sway Trump in his direction.
