    Have they separate categories for fiction and non-fiction?

    I think you are right. Trump is quite smart, and uses his IQ well, to make money flow his way

    Loads of money of the American tax payers. He got richer and richer, being on the golf course

    If there were a Nobel Prize who scores highest on this list, D.Trump would make a great candidate

    According to Nobel's will, the Peace Prize shall be awarded to the person who in the preceding year "shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses".

    Trump has done a lot for fraternity between nations as well as holding and promoting peace congresses.... however...
    Trump has advocated a policy of US first and rebuilt the US military to be effective and strong.

    As opposed to Obama, under whom the US military was reduced for many years... and he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. Consider Ukraine, where Obama did very little to provide military assistance but Trump provided javelins. That contributes to a military build up in Ukraine. Arguably, Trump did more to actually deter Russian aggression in Ukraine than Obama ever did, but not because of peace talks between Ukraine and Russia, rather because of strengthening Ukraine's military. And that's a reason they might give the Nobel Peace Prize to Obama, but not to Trump.

    The reason many heads of state around the world also haven't been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize the past few years might be because of military build up. Even peaceful countries such as Norway have found a need to strengthen their military in recent years. And while North Korea has been brought to the negotiating table for peace talks, North Korea has not engaged in any sort of actual military reduction.

    It's actually difficult to find heads of state to give the Nobel Peace Prize to even though they are moving closer to peace because the Nobel Peace Prize specifically requires "the abolition or reduction of standing armies".

    But it's clearly easily bruised if he's so openly butthurt over Abiy Ahmed being awarded (who was clearly far more worthy than Trump).
