Now, ever since he secured his place in the White House back in 2017...

No one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.

And, much to our shock, it turned out to not be a publicity stunt.

Donald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."

And when it came round to election day...

The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had its new leader - President Donald Trump.

It's been an eventful few years, to say the least.

It's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for a couple of examples. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country is at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.

The President is no stranger to criticism and controversy...

Much of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.

And, earlier this year...

Many prayers were answered when the President was actually impeached.

Trump was charged with 2 offenses.

The first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.

But despite his impeachment...

Trump continues to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base is still going strong... which isn't necessarily a good thing considering the majority of Trump supporters hold far-right and very conservative ideologies.

Times are now harder than ever for the President...

Since the coronavirus pandemic took over the world back in March, there's no denying that Trump has handled it awfully.

Our country is now the worst affected in the world...

And Trump just seems to be completely oblivious to how catastrophic the coronavirus has been for millions of people.

And not to mention the Black Lives Matter movement...

via: Getty

President Trump has shown no real support for the historic movement, and he clearly isn't interested in seeing any change for the black community.

But this week, there has been a temporary distraction.

Last night, the president made a mysterious comment at one of his press conferences.

Now, as we all know, Trump is well known for saying things he doesn't mean in the heat of the moment.

Who remembers when he pondered injecting disinfectant to combat coronavirus?

But, last night, people were genuinely intrigued.

"Doing a pardon tomorrow on someone who is very, very important," Trump casually told reporters on Air Force One.

Speculation as to who the "very, very important" person could be has been rife...

And Trump declined to elaborate further, only adding that it will not be Michael Flynn or Edward Snowden, who have both been publicly charged with leaking secret government information.

On Saturday, Trump had said that he was considering a pardon for Snowden...

Who gave a trove of secret files in 2013 to news organizations that disclosed vast domestic and international surveillance operations carried out by the NSA.

But, evidently, he has had a change of heart.

Because he has now announced that he has issued the long-awaited pardon for Susan B. Anthony, the woman who voted in 1872 before women had the right to vote.

The White House revealed the news on Twitter not too long ago...

By sharing a video of Trump's speech alongside the caption: "America will always honor its heroes! President @realDonaldTrump will sign a full and complete pardon for Susan B. Anthony, who voted in 1872 before women had the right to vote."

Many rushed to offer their congratulations...

And applauded the president for his long-awaited move.

However, others weren't too impressed...

And have argued that, by issuing a pardon, he is actually criminalizing the whole suffragette movement.

But whatever you will say about him...

It's fantastic that the president is finally addressing the suffragette movement.
