Trump Reviewing 3000 Pardons, Including Muhammad Ali But Not O.J. Simpson

Shannon Reynolds | 08 June, 2018, 17:11

The latest potential recipient of his largesse is the late boxing icon Muhammad Ali, Trump said Friday.

"We appreciate President Trump's sentiment, but a pardon is unnecessary", Tweel said. The Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971.

Trump floated the possibility while speaking to reporters at the White House before departing for the Group of Seven summit.

Ali is one name on this list.

He refused to serve in the Vietnam War because of his religious beliefs, declaring himself a conscientious objector, and saying, "I ain't got no quarrel with the Viet Cong".

In May, Trump granted a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion, after being urged to do so by "Rocky" star Sylvester Stallone. The conviction came with a five-year prison sentence and $10,000 fine.

Ali was immediately stripped of his heavyweight title and convicted of draft evasion.

He told reporters in Washington he was looking at "thousands of names" of people who could be granted clemency.

So when Trump says he may pardon Ali, it's unclear what he's talking about.

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.

"There will be more pardons", Trump said.
