Yang Says He Would Pardon Trump

Picture this: President Andrew Yang declaring the “long, national nightmare over” and pardoning Donald Trump.

On ABC News’ “This Week” Sunday, the Venture for America founder said that he would consider following in the footsteps of Gerald Ford and pardon his predecessor.

“It’s a very, very nasty pattern that developing countries have fallen into where a new president ends up throwing the president before them in jail, and that pattern, unfortunately, makes it very hard for any party to govern sustainably moving forward with a sense of unity among their people,” Yang said.

Ford’s pardon was very unpopular and may have contributed to his loss to Jimmy Carter in 1976.

Of course, Yang might not need to do it. Trump infamously tweeted in 2018 that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself. And Trump’s lawyers even seemed to back up that idea in a confidential letter to Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
