Snoop Dogg had been secretly lobbying the White House on behalf of Harris despite being openly critical of Trump. The rapper even made a video in which he pretended to shoot a clown dressed as the president, and Trump clapped back at him on social media. Rumors swirled that Trump granted a lengthy list of pardons to upset the upcoming administration.
He reportedly did not rally for Death Row founder Suge Knight to be free from prison.
Trump has not finished pardoning felons. It is expected that he will announce yet more pardons ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, which takes place at midday today.
