    Sky News US contributor Michael Ware says journalists at the White House pressed President Donald Trump on whether he was going to try and pardon himself “for any potential crimes”. Mr Trump continued the annual tradition of pardoning a Thanksgiving turkey from the Rose Garden, this year choosing to give clemency to one of two turkeys, “Corn” and “Cob”. “As the president was leaving, journalists were yelling out questions about ‘would the president try to pardon himself’ for any potential crimes,” Mr Ware told Sky News. “And that’s certainly a live issue because on January 20, this president becomes a normal citizen again. “And as we know there is multiple investigations across the country, particularly into his financial affairs that are underway.”

  • In This Story: Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is best known as a holiday celebrated in the United States on the fourth Thursday of November every year, usually through feasting, parades and travel to see family and friends, though celebrations have been scaled back during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.

    The roots of the modern celebration lie in settlers celebrating their arrival in the Americas in the early 1600’s. It has been a public holiday since 1941 due to federal legislation, an annual tradition in the United States by presidential proclamation since 1863 and by state legislation since the Founding Fathers of the United States.

    Traditionally, Thanksgiving has been a celebration of the blessings of the year, including the harvest. What Americans call the “Holiday Season” generally begins with Thanksgiving. The first day after Thanksgiving Day—Black Friday—marks the start of the Christmas shopping season.
