The President of the United States, Donald Trump, announced this Tuesday that he would posthumously pardon activist Susan B. Anthony, an icon of the suffrage movement, and was arrested for voting in 1872, when women were still banned from having that right in North America Exercise land.
Trump had already announced that he would be forgiving a “very important” person this Tuesday and, after much speculation, unveiled the name in a ceremony marking the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment to the constitution, which guarantees the right to vote for women.
The president has confirmed that he will use his leadership capacity to “completely” cleanse the files of suffragette Susan B. Anthony. “He was never pardoned,” he insisted, recalling that this woman was simply “guilty of choice”.
Trump faces his biggest challenges in the November election to increase support from women who would generally turn primarily to Democrat Joe Biden. The latter is accompanied by Senator Kamala Harris, who wants to be the first woman to hold the vice presidency of the United States.
