President Trump received his third nomination for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize in September, this time from a group of Australian law professors.
“What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he would no longer leave America involved in endless wars, wars that accomplish nothing more than the murder of thousands of young Americans and the huge debts imposed on America,” he said Australian jurist David Flint. told Sky News Australia on Sunday. “It is reducing the tendency of the United States to get involved in each and every war.”
Flint praised the president’s role in brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“What Trump did was go ahead and negotiate against all advice, but he did it with common sense,” Flint told the outlet. “He negotiated directly with the concerned Arab states and Israel and brought them together.”
“He has also been the first American president to figure out how to make America’s energy independent of the Middle East,” Flint added.
President Trump was first nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by a member of the Norwegian Parliament for his role in the peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. Days later, a member of the Swedish parliament nominated Trump again after he helped secure a deal to normalize economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
“It’s a great honor to be nominated, and I know it has tremendous significance,” Trump told Fox News Radio White House correspondent Jon Decker on September 10. “I think it’s a great thing for our country. It shows that ‘we are trying to make peace, not war all the time.”
The winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced on October 9.
