Why Was Jared Kushner Nominated for a 2021 Nobel Peace Prize & Who Nominated Him?

Jared Kushner‘s name is trending on Twitter and it’s because he is nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and you may be wondering why.

Well, the apparent explanation is that he helped negotiate four deals between Israel and Arab nations known as the “Abraham Accords.” He was nominated by Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz, The Guardian reports. Reuters adds that the deals were the “most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years as the region girds for a prolonged confrontation with Iran.”

Kushner is married to Ivanka Trump and was a White House adviser for her father.

Other nominees this year include Donald Trump, Democratic Party politician and voting activist, Stacey Abrams, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, the World Health Organization, climate campaigner Greta Thunberg, the Black Lives Matter movement, Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the “Pentagon Papers,” U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Lee, and WikiLeaks.
