Trump nominated a third time for Nobel Peace Prize
President Trump has received a third nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
According to Sky News Australia, four Australian law professors recently nominated the president for the high honor, with one of them, David Flint, citing his recent role in helping broker relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"He went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense. He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together," Flint said.
The law professor also pointed to an idea he referred to as the "Trump Doctrine" in his comments explaining the recent nomination to the news agency on Sunday.
"What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided he would no longer have America in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans," Flint said.
"So, he's reducing America's tendency to get involved in any and every war," he continued adding: "The states are lining up, Arab and Middle-Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle-East."
"He is really producing peace in the world in a way in a which none of his predecessors did, and he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize," he said.
According to an official website detailing the process behind nominations for the award, university professors, professors emeriti and associate professors of subjects spanning history, social sciences, law and others are able to submit nominations, in addition to members of national governments and assemblies.
Trump also received a nomination for the award from a member of the Swedish Parliament and a member of the Norwegian Parliament earlier this month.
Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member the conservative-leaning Progress Party in Norway who also serves chairman of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly and was the first to nominate Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize this month, also cited his efforts in helping broker relations between Israel and UAE in recent weeks as reason behind the nomination.
"For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," he said in reference to Trump in an interview with Fox News then.
Tybring-Gjedde, who nominated the president for the award last year, also heaped praised on this president in his nomination letter earlier this month for his decision to withdraw troops from the Middle East.
"Indeed, Trump has broken a 39-year-old streak of American Presidents either starting a war or bringing the United States into an international armed conflict. The last president to avoid doing so was Peace Prize laureate Jimmy Carter," he said in the letter.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden also recently received a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize from a member of the British Parliament.
