President Donald trump told reporter Friday that he is considering "thousands of names" of people who were may pardon and among those are boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

Ali refused to be inducted into the US military in 1967 during the Vietnam War, citing religious objections.

Ali was stripped of his heavyweight crown in 1967. He avoided prison while his case was appealed.

Ali died just over two years ago at the age of 74.

President Trump's reported obsession with his pardoning power shows no sign of letting up. "His memory is very popular now, I'm thinking about Muhammad Ali".

Ali cited his religious beliefs as the reason behind his decision to not take part in the draft for the Vietnam War.

The U.S. Supreme Court threw out that conviction four years later, so it's unclear why Trump would offer a pardon to the former heavyweight and Olympic champ.

Last week, Trump pardoned conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza.

Trump later told reporters that he wants to try to amend his feud with athletes who kneel during the National Anthem by meeting them half-way.

Earlier this week, Trump commuted the life sentence of a woman whose cause was championed by Kim Kardashian West.

Trump has reportedly become increasingly "obsessed" with pardons and enjoys talking about potential pardons with aides, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
