Trump Says Will Consider Pardons For U.S. Soldiers Accused of War Crimes

According to Reuters, U.S. President Donald Trump said that he is considering pardons for “two or three” U.S. soldiers charged with war crimes, a move he said would be controversial but justified because he said they had been treated “unfairly.” Trump told reporters at the White House that he has not decided yet on the cases, and said he may wait until after the men accused of the war crimes go through trials before determining whether to pardon them.
