A group of Australian legal scholars has handed U.S. President Trump his third nomination for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, citing his "Trump Doctrine" that aims to sharply cut American involvement in foreign wars.

"What he has done with the Trump Doctrine is that he has decided that he would no longer have America involved in endless wars," explained David Flint, one of the scholars, "wars which achieve nothing but the killing of thousands of young Americans."

Flint praised Trump's recent Middle East peace deal, formally called the Abraham Accords, saying the president negotiated it "with common sense" and said nations "are lining up" to join the deal, which he called "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, and he fully deserves the Nobel Peace Prize," Flint said.

A member of the Norwegian Parliament nominated Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize on the basis of the Abraham Accords, and a member of the Swedish parliament nominated him for normalizing relations between Kosovo and Serbia.
