President Trump says he may pardon deceased boxing great Muhammad Ali

08 June 2018

President Donald Trump said Friday that he is considering a pardon for late boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House as he prepared to leave for the Group of Seven Summit in Quebec, Trump said he was thinking about pardoning someone who was "not very popular". I thought Alice yesterday was lovely.

"I'm thinking about Muhammad Ali".

Ali's attorney Ron Tweel said in a statement Friday morning that Trump's pardon wasn't needed, due to the Supreme Court's reversal of Ali's conviction. Those under consideration include "folks that have sentences that aren't very fair", Trump said.

Somerville Public Schools did not reveal to HuffPost which school had the poster, but a statement to HuffPost from Mayor Joseph A. Cohen told the Boston Globe that the "jarring" sign was a far cry from the fire drills she had as a young student.

Last week, Trump pardoned conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza.

For Trump, Kardashian's support of Johnson was key, given the President's penchant for considering the pardoning of celebrities like Martha Stewart and former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, also a former TV personality.

He told reporters in Washington he was looking at "thousands of names" of people who could be granted clemency. As a result, he was stripped of his heavyweight title, charged with draft evasion and sentenced to five years in prison.

Trump already has granted a posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson, more than 100 years after many saw as his racially charged conviction.
