I almost couldn’t believe the news today when I saw it. This is a real victory for the average American. There’s no reason why we should so badly punish a junk bond dealer who destroyed the financial lives of millions of Americans.
America won even more bigly today when Trump followed his pardon of Milken with clemency granted to a disgraced governor, police commissioner, and sportsball team owner. SO MUCH WINNING!
This is what making America great again and keeping it great is all about.
President Donald Trump pardoned Michael Milken, the former junk bond king who was a face of the insider trading scandals of the 1980s.
Trump cited the “incredible job” that Milken has done supporting cancer research in the pardon, which was supported by Rudy Giuliani, Rupert Murdoch, Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Sheldon Adelson, Elaine Chao and others.
Trump also granted executive clemency Tuesday to former NYPD commissioner Bernard Kerik, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and ex-San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr.
