WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he may pardon another late heavyweight boxing champion — this time, Muhammad Ali.
Trump tells reporters he’s looking at “thousands of names” of people who could be granted clemency.
The article goes on to state the following:
Ali refused to enter the military during the Vietnam War, declaring himself a conscientious objector. His decision resulted in a draft-evasion conviction, and he was stripped of his heavyweight boxing crown. Ali’s legal fight ended in 1971, when the Supreme Court ruled in his favor.
