Trump gets third Nobel Peace Prize nomination for Abraham Accords

President Donald Trump has received yet another nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. This marks the third time in recent weeks that the president has received such a nomination.

This most recent nomination was made by a group of Australian professors. They based their nomination on the recent peace deals that Trump helped to bring about. Called the “Abraham Accords,” they have normalized relations between Israel, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Earlier this month, the world watched as leaders from these three nations joined President Trump at the White House to sign off on the deal.

The “Trump Doctrine”

David Flint, one of the Australian professors, explained the nomination in a recent interview with Sky News Australia.

“[Trump] went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense,” Flint said. “He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together.”

In addition, Flint said that part of the nomination is based on Trump’s decision to “no longer have America involved in endless wars, wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans.”

“So he’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war,” Flint continued. “The states are lining up, Arab and Middle Eastern, to join that network of peace which will dominate the Middle East.”

Flint added: “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.”

Support is mounting

Previously, the president had received a nomination from Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament. This was specifically for the Middle East peace deal that Trump brokered between Israel and the UAE. Tybring-Gjedde had previously nominated Trump for his summit with North Korea.

The second nomination came from Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish parliament, for the peace deal that Trump facilitated between Serbia and Kosovo.

As these nominations go to show, there is a pretty darn good case for Trump to actually get the award. We’ll have to see if the committee agrees.
