The Trump campaign released an ad this week touting President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize, but Nobel was misspelled as "Noble."

The Facebook ad shows a smiling Trump with the text overlay: "President Donald Trump was nominated for the Noble Peace Prize." And a caption reads: "President Trump achieved PEACE in the MIDDLE EAST!"

The 2021 nomination came earlier this week from a far-right Norwegian lawmaker who praised Trump's role in fostering negotiations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates last month.

Christian Tybring-Gjedde told Fox News, "All efforts that lead to peace in that region should be awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize and also for Donald J. Trump."

Tybring-Gjedde previously threw Trump's name in the running in 2019 for his diplomatic efforts with North Korea.

To be sure, Trump has not secured widespread peace in the region. The Trump administration's much-touted plan to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict was immediately rejected by Palestinian leaders early this year, and US troops are still deployed to Iraq and Syria.

Any head of state or member of a national government can submit a candidate, and hundreds are put forth for the prestigious accolade every year. The rules also allow university professors and directors of foreign-policy institutes to submit nominees, BBC reported.

Trump celebrated the recognition on Twitter by reposting a slate of congratulatory messages from conservatives on Wednesday morning.

The president has long wanted the prize and previously blasted the choosing committee for not already awarding him the honor.

His reelection team swiftly moved to celebrate the nomination news through ads, as well as campaign emails and texts to supporters asking for donations.

Four US presidents have won the Nobel Peace Prize, with the most recent being former President Barack Obama in 2009. Trump has criticized that choice.

They gave it to obama and he did absolutely nothing to deserve it even in the right years he spent in the white House after he was "award" it. At least Trump had a ligitimate act that he can claim

That, at least, is a legitimate reason.
