US President Donald Trump said he would seriously consider pardoning ex-National Security Agency employee Edward Snowden. He stated this during his press conference, which was broadcast on the website of the White House.

"I will study this. I am not very familiar with the Snowden situation. But I will start to study this ... I will study it very carefully," Trump said, when asked if he was ready to pardon Snowden if he returned to the country.

According to Trump, opinions are divided on this issue: many think that Snowden should be treated differently, while others think that he "did bad things."

On Thursday, Trump said in an interview with the New York Post that "many people feel that he (Snowden - 112 International) is being treated unfairly."

As we reported earlier, US President Donald Trump said he would not participate in the online summit on Iran, which was previously proposed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
