President Donald Trump received his third Nobel Peace Prize nomination by a group of Australian law professors on the basis of the “Trump Doctrine” on foreign policy, Newsweek reported.

"The Trump Doctrine is something extraordinary, as so many things that Donald Trump does. He is 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," law professor David Flint told Sky News in explaining why he decided to nominate Trump.

"What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that 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."

Trump was first nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in early September for facilitating the peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"For his merit, I think he has done more trying to create peace between nations than most other Peace Prize nominees," said Christian Tybring-Gjedde, leader of Norway’s NATO delegation, who nominated Trump for the first time.

The president was nominated a second time a few days later for brokering a peace deal between Serbia and Kosovo by Magnus Jacobsson, a member of the Swedish parliament.

"I have nominated the US Gov. and the governments of Kosovo and Serbia for the Nobel Peace Prize for their joint work for peace and economic development, through the cooperation agreement signed in the White House. Trade and communications are important building blocks for peace," Jacobsson tweeted.

Flint spoke to Sky News about Trump’s involvement in the peace deal between Israel and the UAE, which made it the third Arab country to make peace with Israel.

"What Trump did was he went ahead and negotiated against all advice, but he did it with common sense," he said.

"He negotiated directly with the Arab states concerned and Israel and brought them together and these states are lining up," Flint said. "He's also been the first American president to work out how to make America energy independent of the Middle East.

Flint added that Trump "is really producing peace in the world in a way which none of his predecessors did. He fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize."
