President Trump Uses Executive Power, Issues 2 Pardons

November 20, 2017Nov 20, 2017

Since taking the Oval Office, President Trump has yet to issue any presidential pardons. The power to pardon individuals is a sacred right reserved for the President of the United States.

However, as Thanksgiving approaches, President Trump is doing just that. He is going to pardon two turkeys! (No, we don’t mean Hillary and Barack.)

Two turkeys arrived in D.C. today ahead of the 70th annual turkey pardon. According to the White House, the two turkeys were raised in Western Minnesota, and after the pardon will join turkeys pardoned by Obama at Virginia Tech's "Gobblers Rest" exhibit. They will be staying in style at the Willard Hotel, as is tradition, according to reports.

Many other sitting Presidents have participated in the fun tradition. Take a look at some of them in our photos below. Be sure to read our other breaking news article about the “Touched by An Angel” actress who just died.
