President Donald Trump will reportedly spend his final day in office, issuing nearly 100 pardons and commutations a list that supposedly excludes the president himself at the moment â ???? in a move that could once again underscore Trump’s willingness to use his grace to reward his most loyal friends and political allies

US. President Donald Trump plans to issue around 100 pardons on his last day in office

Trump is preparing a list of around 100 pardons and commutations, which include white collar criminals and rap musicians, CNN and Reuters reported on Monday, citing sources

According to Reuters, Trump has privately debated the issue of self-forgiveness but has been warned about it by advisors who believe such a move would make him look guilty

Nor does the outgoing president plan to issue preventive pardons to members of his family, which he had previously considered

Several Trump supporters who perpetrated violence at the Capitol earlier this month have asked the president for mercy, but CNN says he is unlikely to pardon any of the rioters who are under pressure from close political allies like Lindsey Graham who have discouraged such a move

According to a poll published by ABC News / Washington Post on Sunday, 68% of Americans oppose President Trump pardoning himself for federal crimes of which he may be charged

70 This is the total number of presidential pardons Trump has issued to date, the lowest of any presidents since 1901, according to the Pew Research Center in relation to all clemencies ???? which also contain commutations? Trump is slightly ahead of George HW. Bush, who issued a total of only 77 clemencies during his tenure

Though he has issued far fewer pardons than his predecessors, many of Trump’s high profile clemencies have sparked controversy.The president’s most recent pardons included former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty twice to the FBI over his meeting Lying to a Russian diplomat Other controversial recipients include ex-Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was involved in racial profiling to detain suspected undocumented migrants, and four private military contractors charged with war crimes
