The incumbent U.S. president, Republican Donald Trump, intends to announce a pardon for about 100 people on January 19. According to CNN, the president is not planning a pardon for himself, as previously pointed out by the U.S. media.
According to the network, Trump had planned to announce a presidential pardon for two groups of people late last week and on Jan. 19.
But amid the turmoil in Washington, D.C., Trump was forced to reconsider his plans. Now Trump is expected to announce pardons for about 100 people at once on the eve of Democrat Joseph Biden’s inauguration, which is scheduled for Jan. 20.
