The Nobel Peace Prize nomination comes from a foreign Australia legal team focusing on the President’s “Trump Doctrine” against “endless wars”.
A team of Australian legal scholars, led by David Flint, have nominated President Donald Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize. The foreign nomination comes as his third for the prize. Flint gave his reasoning behind the nomination Sunday. Speaking to Sky News Australia, the legal scholar states:
“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. He’s reducing America’s tendency to get involved in any and every war.” David Flint

Within his nominating statement, Flint also praises the U.S. President’s role in “brokering a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
“What Trump did is he went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense,” Flint tells Australian news of his opinion. “He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together. He’s also been the first American president to work out how to make America energy independent of the Middle East.”
Trump’s previous foreign Nobel Nominations
Trump was first nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by another foreign advocate, a Norwegian Parliament member. This nomination, too, comes from the president’s role in the UAE peace deal.
A matter of days later, another Swedish Parliament member nominated Trump. This time, it was for helping “secure a deal for normalized economic relations between Serbia and Kosovo.”
Fox News carries a statement from the president on his nominations. “It’s a great honor to be nominated, and I know it has tremendous significance,” Trump tells Fox News correspondent Jon Decker. “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.”
