President Trump has received his third nomination to the Nobel Peace Prize in as many weeks, this time from a group of Australian law professors. Distinguished law professor David Flint is among four.
“What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided he would no longer have America involved in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans and enormous debts imposed on America,” Flint told Sky News Australia. “He’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war.”
President Trump has successfully brokered a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and a deal for normalized economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
“It’s a great honor to be nominated, and I know it has tremendous significance,” Trump said in a radio interview on September 10th, 2020. “I just think it’s a great thing for our country. It shows that we’re trying to make peace, not war all the time.”
In discussing his nomination of President Trump, Flint noted that the President defied all advice against the move and “did it with common sense,” pointing out that he negotiated directly with the Arab states bringing them together with Israel.
“The states are lining up, Arab and Middle-Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle-East,” Flint said. “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.”
President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 at the very beginning of his administration, before he had any accomplishments on the world stage to his name, and after a lengthy international victory lap tour.
