South China Morning Post said on August 16 that President trump said on Tuesday that he was “strongly considering” whether to pardon former CIA employee Snowden. Trump said at the press conference that he did not know the case very well, but he acknowledged that the party who supported and opposed amnesty had strong and strong arguments, and he would start to consider the relevant issues. “There are many people who think he is not treated fairly by the law enforcement department of the United States,” trump said in an interview with the New York Post. For years, the U.S. authorities have been hoping Snowden will return to the United States for criminal trial of espionage charges filed in 2013. In 2013, Snowden disclosed a lot to news agencies, disclosed the large-scale monitoring activities of the national security agency at home and abroad, and then he fled the United States and obtained asylum in Russia. Before, shortly after the leak, trump had expressed hostility to Snowden on twitter, calling him “a spy to be executed.”.
