President Trump Says He May Pardon Late Boxing Champion Muhammad Ali

Latest news

    President Donald Trump says he may pardon another late heavyweight boxing champion — this time, Muhammad Ali.

    Trump tells reporters he’s looking at “thousands of names” of people who could be granted clemency.

    Trump’s already granted a posthumous pardon to boxing’s first black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson — convicted of violating a law that made it illegal to transport women across state lines for “immoral” purposes.

    Ali refused to enter the military during the Vietnam War, declaring himself a conscientious objector. His decision resulted in a draft-evasion conviction, and he was stripped of his heavyweight boxing crown. Ali’s legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor.
