Trump floats possibility of pardoning Muhammad Ali

US President Donald Trump is considering pardoning boxing legend Muhammad Ali for his draft dodging conviction.

Trump said he was considering a number of other pardons too and said that the pardoning power was "a attractive thing" for presidents.

Trump said that he wasn't thinking about pardoning either man, as neither has yet been convicted of a crime.

Ali's legal fight ended in 1971, however, when the Supreme Court reversed the conviction 8-0, so a presidential pardon might be superfluous.

Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a meeting with in Canada with USA allies that his team was "looking at literally thousands of names" of people for potential pardons because they were treated unfairly or their sentences are too long.

In May, Trump granted a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing's first black heavyweight champion, after being urged to do so by "Rocky" star Sylvester Stallone.
