Donald Trump proclaimed he has the "absolute right to PARDON [sic]" himself, even though no President has ever tried to pardon themselves and there is no Supreme Court precedent concerning the issue. Legal scholars from across the spectrum have been debating whether a President can pardon themselves, so declaring that he has the "absolute right" to pardon himself is simply unknowable.
