Donald Trump announces he will posthumously pardon Susan B. Anthony

President Trump announced on Tuesday that he will officially pardon Susan B. Anthony, leader of the women’s suffrage movement, 100 years after the 19th amendment was ratified.

Anthony was arrested in 1872 for illegally voting in protest of male-only voting rules, and was never officially pardoned.

President Trump announced on Tuesday morning that he will sign the pardon at the White House during an event celebrating 100 years to the day that the women’s voting rights rule was approved.

“She was never pardoned,” Trump said. “She was guilty of voting.” Anthony was arrested, indicted, tried, and convicted of illegally voting for President Ullyses S. Grant in the 1872 election.

“Well I have been & gone & done it!!—positively voted the Republican ticket—strait this a.m. at 7 O’clock,” Anthony wrote afterwards in a letter. “If only now—all the women suffrage women would work to this end of enforcing the existing constitution—supremacy of national law over state law—what strides we might make this winter.”

Anthony died in 1906 after dedicating her life to women’s rights and antislavery causes.

President Trump wrote on Twitter last week: “As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of women’s voting rights, we should build a BEAUTIFUL STATUE in Washington D.C. to honor the many brave women who made this possible for our GREAT COUNTRY.”

I still have my uncirculated Susan B. Anthony coin given to me when I opened my bank account in Wash. DC at Women’s Bank

Why we have rampant divorce, why we no more head of the household, why we have maybe only one parent to give examples to the children, why we have more killed by abortion than in WWII casualties, why we have a new generation of misguided youth. Yes Susie, you really started something. Welcome to man’s world.

No problem with statue of Susan B. Anthony however it would need constant guards for protection against BLM people tearing it down unless you made her Black sorry to say. Not racist just realist seeing what is going on in our world today.

Make the statue out of steel. Electrifying it so who ever touches it gets 30 thousand volts instantly.

Good idea! The demonrats won’t like it, but oh well! She was giving women a voice, and she voted REPUBLICAN!

Vote Straight Republican this November. God bless U.S.A.

It is sad she did not live to enjoy the pardon. She needs some dedication to her. We need harsh penalties for destroying any statue. Why are we allowing terrorist to dictate what they want regardless of the law. It is time for law and order.
