Reality super star Kim Kardashian West praised Donald Trump after meeting with the president on Wednesday afternoon at the White House to discuss prison reform.
Accompanied by her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, Kardashian asked Trump to grant clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who has been imprisoned for over 21 years and is serving a life sentence in federal prison in Aliceville, Alabama for a drug-trafficking charge.
“I think that he really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star told Mic in after the meeting. “He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively.”
“I went in, me and Shawn, to really talk to the president about Alice Johnson and really explain to him why she would be such a good person to grant clemency to,” Kardashian West said. “The president seems to have a passion for what everything that Jared has been trying to do, and that just makes me happy that that conversation is just moving forward.”
Kardashian also reportedly spent time at First Daughter Ivanka Trump’s and Jared Kushner‘s home on Thursday.
