President Trump has received a third nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for reducing US involvement in wars, one of his nominators said, The Hill reports.
According to Sky News Australia, four Australian law professors recently nominated the president for the Nobel Peace Prize, this time for the president’s foreign policy philosophy, dubbed the “Trump Doctrine.”
To explain the recent nomination, Australian law professor David Flint, cited the president’s 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 told Sky News Australia 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 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.
The winner of the 2020 peace prize is expected to be announced on October 9.
