Ali, who was known as Cassius Clay before converting to Islam, was sentenced to five years in jail and fined $10,000 for refusing to enter the US military when he was drafted during the Vietnam War.
Ali's attorney Ron Tweel said in a statement Friday morning that Trump's pardon wasn't needed, due to the Supreme Court's reversal of Ali's conviction.

Trump said he was not considering pardoning O.J. Simpson.
