Trump Prepares Pardon for Legendary Boxer Muhammad Ali

Trump considering pardon for boxing legend Muhammad Ali

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he is considering pardoning some 3,000 people "who may have been treated unfairly", including late heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

Speaking as he left the White House for a world leaders' summit in Canada, Trump also that he's considering thousands of additional pardons, including one for the boxing great.

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.

"We appreciate President Trump's sentiment, but a pardon is unnecessary".

This led to Ali's arrest and conviction, which was later overturned on appeal by the US Supreme Court.

"The power to pardon is a attractive thing", Trump said Friday on his way out the door at the White House.

"I'm thinking about Muhammad Ali".

Ali was stripped of his heavyweight crown in 1967. Earlier this week, Trump commuted the sentence of 63-year-old grandmother Alice Marie Jones, who was serving a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense.

At the time, Ali had told reporters that he "ain't got no quarrel with them Vietcong". Since taking office, Trump has pardoned or issued commutations for Johnson; conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza; boxing champion Jack Johnson; former Bush administration official Scooter Libby; former Navy sailor Kristian Saucier; meat-packing executive Sholom Rubashkin; and former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

"President Trump has spent much of his first 18 months in office degrading National Football League players who protest police brutality and racial injustice". The Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 1971. His license to fight was also reinstated and Ali spent the next 10 years fighting professionally, cementing his reputation as one of the country's most prominent athletes.

Last week, Trump told reporters he is considering pardoning lifestyle maven Martha Stewart, who was convicted in 2004 of obstructing justice and lying to investigators about a well-timed stock sale, and commuting the sentence of former IL governor Rod Blagojevich, D, who was convicted in 2010 of trying to sell the Senate seat vacated by President Barack Obama, among other campaign finance violations. "I think you see the way I m using them", Trump told reporters. "We're looking at them", Trump said. "I have an absolute right to pardon myself", he said, but doesn't need to do that because he did nothing wrong. "If he accepts Muhammad Ali being right for what he did, and want to give him a pardon, then that pardon should be going out to all those people who kneel". He called pardoning power "a lovely thing", and may be considering as many as 3,000 pardons, Fox News reports.
