Trump to pardon US women's suffrage hero Susan B. Anthony

WASHINGTON, Aug 18 -US President Donald Trump said today that he will posthumously pardon American social reformer and women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony. Anthony refused to post bail, hoping to use her incarceration as the basis for a habeas corpus petition to more quickly move the fight to the Supreme Court. It turns out, though, Mr. Trump has previously spoken of Susan B. Anthony a number of times during his presidency, a fact turned up by the Web site Smartertimes.com. "NY will continue to lead the nation in creating greater equality for all and we are proud to preserve and enhance this important part of American history for future generations". Betty Little, R-Queensbury. But after Denmark's Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said that Greenland was not for sale, calling it an "absurd discussion", Trump lashed out, canceling a planned trip to the country and describing her comment as "nasty". She was eventually arrested and convicted for casting her vote. The worst part was that your pay went to your husband or father, that is the ultimate offense. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests.

The drama took another turn when the U.S. president described Mette Frederiksen as "nasty" after the Danish PM laughed off the notion.

Anthony eventually persuaded Jones and his two young colleagues to accept her registration.

"She was guilty for voting", he said, "and we're going to be signing a full and complete pardon".

"He actually said. could we swap Puerto Rico for Greenland because, in his words, Puerto Rico was "dirty" and 'the people were poor, '" former DHS chief of staff Miles Taylor told MSNBC's Hallie Jackson.

But the day was not without its own controversy.

Anthony was arrested in 1872 for illegally voting due to NY state laws at the time only allowing men to vote.

But, drumroll please... Susan B. Anthony, the 19th century women's suffragette, was the lucky pardon recipient, to mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment codifying women's right to vote.

"She was never pardoned!" he exclaimed in a White House ceremony. "Let her Rest In Peace, @realDonaldTrump". Besides, she could have asked when she had the chance. The 19th Amendment was ratified 100 years ago in 1920, 14 years after Anthony's death. Several years later, in 1878, the amendment giving women the right to vote was presented to Congress thanks to Anthony's efforts. "Did you know that she was never pardoned?" Both Anthony and Stanton died in the early 1900s, more than a decade before their dream come to fruition. "It shall be my work this evening to prove to you that in thus voting, I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my citizen's right, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution, beyond the power of any State to deny".

No timeline was announced for when the home would be open to the public.
