President Donald Trump has received another nomination for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize after his administration has helped broke peace and economic deals between Israel and some of its regional rivals.
The new nominators are four Australian law professors who praised the “Trump Doctrine” of foreign policy is “something extraordinary.”
“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 and enormous debts imposed on America, and nothing solved in the countries in which it is carried on. So he’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war,” David Flint, one of the law professors, said on Britain’s SkyNews on Sunday, Sept. 27.
“He has, firstly, common sense, and he is only guided by national interest … and therefore an interest in the Western alliance,” the Flint continued.
With the brokering role of the Trump administration, Israel and United Arab Emirates (UAE) finalized their peace agreement in August. This unprecedented deal was closely followed by a similar agreement to normalize diplomatic ties between Bahrain and Israel earlier in September.
“What Trump did is 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.
Flint added that Arab and Middle-Eastern countries are lining up to join that network of peace.
“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,” Flint said.
President Trump has two prior Nobel Prize nominations, with the first from a Norwegian Parliament member for his role in the historic Middle East peace deal, and the second from a Swedish Parliament member for his help to normalize economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner will be announced on Oct. 9.
