President Donald Trump issued a pardon on Tuesday to Susan B. Anthony, who was convicted in 1872 of voting illegally because she was a woman.
Trump decided to pardon Anthony on the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote.
Trump also tweeted in support of HR 473, a bill that would create a monument to women’s suffrage in the Capitol.
“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,” he tweeted last week.
Democrats were, of course, offended that he co-opted a liberal hero with his pardon.
