Donald Trump pardons rappers Lil’ Wayne, Kodak Black. Ignores his family

President Donald Trump offered a final wave of pardons and commutations to 143 people early Wednesday morning.

Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, both with federal weapons offenses, received presidential pardons as well as former White House aide, Steve Bannon, and former Detroit Mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, who was serving a 28-year prison term on corruption charges.

Forbes reports that Trump refused to pardon his adult children or his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

The president also did not attempt to pardon himself. And despite some scattered pleas, none of the Trump supporters who broke into the U.S. Capitol building almost two weeks ago were pardoned.
