The Inside Story of Trump’s Pardon of Angela Stanton-King

Written by Wes Walker on February 20, 2020

Trump has taken some serious heat over his recent pardons from some quarters. But strangely, none of his critics mention this one.

Alveda King — no relation — considers Stanton-King her godchild in the sense that “God sent her to me, to guide and to help and to mentor.”

President Trump asked Alveda, ‘Is she a good person?”

The evangelist and pro-life warrior immediately replied, “Yes sir, really she is.”

“Good,” said Trump, “because I’m signing this pardon right now.”

She then heard the president telling an assistant to get a copy of the signed presidential pardon to Alveda King and Angela Stanton-King right away.

When he got back on the phone, Alveda King expressed her heartfelt gratitude.

“I said, ‘Wow, you really make promises, then you keep them.’”

“You get that,” Trump answered. “Everybody doesn’t, but you get it.”NewsMax

He spoke with Alveda King because she has been a mentor for Angela. There is no family relationship between them, despite their shared last name. Stanton-King has since become a criminal justice reform advocate.

Her story gives some clues about why she would be so very passionate about that issue.

For Stanton-King, the pardon represented another amazing chapter in her life’s extraordinary journey. After surviving a troubled childhood involving abuse, she got caught up in a stolen vehicle ring, and received a prison sentence. She was released in 2005.

“When I was released from prison 15 years ago,” she told Newsmax in an exclusive interview, “I was given a $25 check and a bus ticket and told to start my life over.

“I came home to four children, and I came home to two tombstones,” she said. “My mother was in one and my grandmother was in the other.

“They’d both passed away while I was in prison.NewsMax

That was rough, obviously. But it got worse when she came out. She was handed $25 and was told to move on with her life.

Angela Stanton-King went on bounce around from one shelter to shelter with her four children, until she was turned away from the last one. As a felon, she found it almost impossible to find work to provide for her children — until Alveda King gave her a lifeline.

Since then, she has gone on to write a best-selling book about her experience and has become an advocate for criminal justice reform.

She is the break in the narrative the Left is desperate to keep us from seeing.

What’s the matter Chelsea — is Angela invisible to a white Hollywood elite chick? Do you not KNOW about her story, or are you deliberately suppressing it as an attack on the (Republican) President?

She has something to say about that narrative:

Not that we’re surprised at all.

The media’s first allegiance is to their Democrat base… not to anything resembling professional journalist integrity.
