Muhammad Ali’s ex-wife says Donald Trump is wasting his time if he’s considering pardoning the legendary boxer … telling TMZ Sports he should focus his energy on the LIVING!
We spoke with Khalilah Ali — who was married to Muhammad from ’67 to ’76 — and she was shocked when she watched Trump tell the media he was considering pardoning Ali … presumably for his conviction for resisting the draft in 1971.
That conviction was overturned by the Supreme Court … so, as Khalilah pointed out, “There’s no necessary need for a pardon.”
TMZ reported that Khalilah Ali drew a comparison between her former husband and the NFL players who kneel during the anthem, and suggested Trump should “pardon” them. The article goes on to state the following:
“If you’re willing to say its okay for Muhammad Ali to be pardoned for his freedom and standing up his rights and standing up for not going to the army … then you’re telling me that you’re ready to pardon everybody that has done that in the same manner as Muhammad Ali has.”
