Trump considering posthumous pardon for Muhammad Ali

President Trump's reported obsession with his pardoning power shows no sign of letting up.

Speaking to reporters outside the White House as he prepared to leave for the Group of Seven Summit in Quebec, Trump said he was thinking about pardoning someone who was "not very popular".

President Donald Trump says he may pardon deceased boxing great Muhammad Ali.

Although Ali's conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court in 1971, it had a massive impact on his boxing career, as he didn't fight for more than three years, from March 1967 until October 1970, as no state would license him to box. "There is no conviction from which a pardon is needed".

Ali is one name on this list. "And some others and some folks whose have sentences that aren't fair".
