Trump’s son-in-law Kushner nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Former White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and his deputy have been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.

The son-in-law of Donald Trump and his deputy Avi Berkowitz were nominated by one of the former US president’s lawyers for their role in negotiating four normalisation deals between Israel and Arab nations known as the “Abraham Accords”.

The deals are regarded as the most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years and were announced in a four-month span between August and December last year.

The American lawyer who nominated them, Alan Dershowitz, previously defended Mr Trump in his first impeachment trial.
