President Trump may pardon late boxing champion Muhammad Ali.

He told reporters outside the White House Friday, that he is considering granting clemency to at least 3,000 more people — including Ali.

The president has issued a number of pardons recently, including for first time drug offender Alice Marie Johnson whose case was championed by Kim Kardashian West.

He told reporters there are many cases similar to Johnson’s where individuals have been treated unfairly by the justice system.

“I am going to take a look at those applications, and if I find — and my committee finds — that they’re unfairly treated, we will pardon them or at least let them out.,” said President Trump.

Ali’s lawyer responded to the president’s idea, saying although they appreciate the sentiment, however, the boxer’s conviction has already been vacated by the Supreme Court and a pardon is not necessary.

The president recently granted a posthumous pardon to boxing’s first black heavyweight champion Jack Johnson.
