President Donald J. Trump has devoted his life to bringing people together and encouraging them to set their grievances aside for the good of the country, and the good of all mankind.
His final acts as president should reflect this noble and selfless commitment, which is why Trump should consider issuing preemptive pardons to the following Democratic criminals.

Because Trump cares about what's best for the country above all else, he will want to ensure his successor won't be bogged down by criminal investigations into his delinquent son's inevitable attempts to cash in (again) on his father's job title.
The Butcher of Albany would welcome Trump's clemency now, when he is still adored by the obsequious press and winning Emmy awards for holding press conferences. History won't be so kind.
Bill & Hillary Clinton
Bill for his decades-long spree of sexual deviancy; Hillary for her lust for corruption, as well as her role in the untimely murder of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, a longtime Democratic donor. It's the least Trump could do after crushing her lifelong dream.
The Army Reserve is investigating the failed Senate candidate for committing adultery with the wife of an enlisted officer, a potential violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The Democratic mayor of Massena, N.Y., was arrested earlier this month after throwing a bag of crack cocaine out of his vehicle during a police pursuit. Seems like a nice enough guy, though.
The #MeToo Democrats
A somewhat controversial move, given Trump's commitment to family values and his love for the women in his life, but one that could potentially rectify a perceived injustice. Just as minorities are statistically more likely than whites to be arrested for certain crimes, prominent Democrats, their financial backers, and other like-minded allies have been disproportionately singled out for sexual deviancy.
