US President Donald Trump granted clemency to 143 individuals on January 20, 2021, ahead of the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. The White House statement listed 73 people who had received pardons and 70 others who had their sentences commuted. Among them was Trump’s former adviser Steve Bannon, who was charged with fraud in 2020 over a crowdfunding project to build a wall on the US-Mexico border. Trump also granted clemency to rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, as well as former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. However, Trump did not pardon himself or his family members.
