He's a controversial character, to say the least - but now Trump has been nominated for one of the world's most prestigious awards.
President Trump has had a busy 4 years.
via: GettyLove him or hate him, it's hard to deny he's made an impact.
But the latest news may be the most controversial yet.
via: GettyAs Trump has just been nominated for a very prestigious award.
This is some of the first good news Trump has had in a while.
via: GettySince winning his place in the White House back in 2017, President Trump has consistently been embroiled in controversy and scandal.
It's been a strange couple of years...
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, remarkable, it wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And when it came round to election day...The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had its new leader - President Donald Trump.
It's been an eventful few years, to say the least.
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country was at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
The President is no stranger to criticism and controversy...
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, earlier this year...Many prayers were answered when the president was actually impeached.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
But despite his impeachment...
via: GettyTrump continues to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base is still going strong... Which isn't necessarily a good thing considering the majority of Trump supporters hold far-right and very conservative ideologies.
But, despite his overwhelmingly loyal fan base...
via: GettyTimes are now harder than ever for the president. Since the coronavirus pandemic took over the world back in March, there's no denying that Trump has handled it awfully.
Our country is now the worst affected in the world...
via: GettyAnd Trump seems to remain completely oblivious to how catastrophic the coronavirus has been for millions of people.
Latst month, things got even worse for the president on a personal level.
via: Getty ImagesHis younger brother and best friend, Robert Trump, sadly passed away.
The White House issued a statement reading:
Very sad to hear of the passing of Robert Trump. He was a successful businessman and philanthropist who led a co… https://t.co/23VRBr3LMs— Lindsey Graham (@Lindsey Graham)1597609740.0
"He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again."

It had already been reported that Robert Trump was seriously ill...
via: Getty ImagesDetails of his illness are yet to be confirmed, but it is known that he passed away at a New York hospital.
Robert's funeral took place at the White House...
via: GettyAnd the President and First Lady could be seen accompanying the casket as it made its way down the front steps of the North Portico and was loaded into the hearse.
However, following his brother's funeral...
via: GettyTrump has been hit with some amazing (and quite surprising) news.
He's been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
via: GettyAnd if you're asking why, they've offered a pretty extensive explanation.
The nomination is for his work in brokering a deal between Israel and the UAE.
via: GettyTrump was nominated by Christian Tybring-Gjedde - a right-wing Norwegian politician.
Tybring-Gjedde spoke to Fox News explaining why he chose Trump.
via: Getty"For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," he explained.
"The committee should look at the facts and judge him on the facts - not on the way he behaves sometimes."
via: Getty"The people who have received the Peace Prize in recent years have done much less than Donald Trump."
Could he win?
via: GettyWe'll have to wait until December to see.
And before then, he's got another big date to wait for.
