WASHINGTON (AA) - President Donald Trump said Friday he is weighing a possible posthumous pardon for boxing great and humanitarian icon Muhammad Ali.
"I'm thinking about Muhammad Ali. I'm thinking about that very seriously and some others," Trump told reporters at the White House before departing for Canada where he will participate in a Group of Seven meeting.
Ali died in 2016 after battling Parkinson's disease for over three decades.
It is unclear what Trump would be pardoning Ali for. He was convicted in the 1960s of refusing compulsory military service, but the conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court in 1971.
He said Ali's potential pardon is one of several he is considering.
