A group of Australian law professors have nominated Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize, marking the third such nomination for the U.S. President.
Eminent law professor David Flint is among the group of law professors making the case. Flint told Sky News the nomination is for the "Trump Doctrine" and steering the historic peace deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel along with the similar deal between Bahrain and Israel.
“The ‘Trump Doctrine’ is something extraordinary, as so many things that Donald Trump does,” Flint says.
“He’s guided by two things which seem to be absent from so many politicians: He has firstly common sense, and he is only guided by a national interest, and therefore, in our circumstances, an interest in the Western alliance."
"What Trump did, 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," Professor Flint added.
"These 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 - he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize," Flint said.
