Trump Weighing Pardon Of Muhammad Ali

President Donald Trump says he may pardon the late heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali, who doesn’t seem to need one. On top of the former Berrien Springs resident having died two years ago, his conviction was overturned in 1971 by the U.S. Supreme Court. And when it comes to future acts of clemency, Trump may ask for recommendations from pro football players and other athletes who have protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. The President says he’s going to ask protesting players to suggest “people that they think were unfairly treated by the justice system.”

Ali’s former estate in Berrien Springs has recently been put on the market. The property along the St. Joseph River includes a private gym with a boxing ring and is listed for nearly $2.9 million.
