Trump floats possibility of pardoning Muhammad Ali

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

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

This led to Ali's arrest and conviction, which was later overturned on appeal by the US Supreme Court. There's a slight problem with pardoning Ali though: His conviction was already thrown out.

Ali's pardon would be for a draft-evasion conviction, that results from his refusal to enter the military during the Vietnam War.

In 1971 his case made its way to the Supreme Court. Johnson was convicted in 1913 by an all-white jury of violating the Mann Act for traveling with his white girlfriend. According to the Chicago Tribune, Trump said that "instead of talk", he will ask protesting players to suggest "people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system".

Ali regained the boxing title in 1974.

The discussion reportedly came up on Friday as Trump spoke with reporters at the White House prior to his trip to Canada for the G-7 summit.

The former Cassius Clay died in 2016 at the age of 74 due to septic shock brought on by a respiratory illness.

"The power to pardon", said Trump, "is a handsome thing".

He did not offer any other names, but said in response to a reporter's question that O.J. Simpson wasn't on the list.

And Trump recently pardoned conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted of a campaign finance violation.

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.
