President Trump says he may pardon deceased boxing great Muhammad Ali

Noah Ferguson | 08 June, 2018, 17:49

Mr Trump also recently said he has the "absolute right" to pardon himself in the Russian Federation inquiry, although he insists he has done nothing wrong.

Trump floated an appeal for Ali on Friday morning when asked by reporters whether he was considering pardoning former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and longtime attorney Michael Cohen.

President Donald trump told reporter Friday that he is considering "thousands of names" of people who were may pardon and among those are boxing legend Muhammad Ali. The Supreme Court would overturn his conviction in 1971. "There is no conviction from which a pardon is needed". "And some others and some folks whose have sentences that aren't fair". I thought Alice yesterday was lovely.

Trump has ramped up the use of his executive clemency power in recent weeks, granting pardons to the late heavyweight boxing champion Jack Johnson and the conservative pundit Dinesh D'Souza, then commuting the sentence of 63-year-old Alice Johnson, who was serving a life sentence for drug offenses. His decision resulted in a draft-evasion conviction, and he was stripped of his heavyweight boxing crown.

Media captionAre presidential pardons Trump's secret weapon? "I'm thinking about Muhammad Ali, I'm thinking about that very seriously".

Johnson's pardon followed a lobbying effort by reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who met with Trump at the White House late last month.
