President Trump floats pardoning boxing great Muhammad Ali

US President Donald Trump has said he is considering a pardon for the late boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Ali's legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor, reversing his conviction on a technicality.

Trump floated the possibility of a pardon while speaking to reporters at the White House before departing for the Group of 7 summit. I thought Alice yesterday was lovely.

Trump already has granted a posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, Jack Johnson, more than 100 years after many saw as his racially charged conviction. Those under consideration include "folks that have sentences that aren't very fair", Trump said.

Trump said that "instead of talk", he is going to ask protesting players to suggest "people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system".




Earlier this week, Trump issued a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, a Tennessee grandmother convicted on charges of conspiracy to possess cocaine and attempted possession of cocaine. Ali remained free while he appealed the conviction, but he was stripped of his world heavyweight title and his boxing license.

The president has recently mooted pardons for lifestyle personality Martha Stewart and former governor of Illinois Rod Blagojevich.

In response to one reporter's question, Trump also confirmed that one name not on his list for potential pardons was O.J. Simpson, the former football star who was released on parole last year after serving nine years in prison.
