Kim Kardashian Meeting With Trump to Discuss Pardoning Alice Marie Johnson

Kardashian West was first drawn to the woman's story after seeing a video profile on Johnson produced by the outlet in 2017.

President Trump, for his part, tweeted back a photo from his get-together with Kardashian, calling it a "great meeting".

While Donald wrote: 'Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing'. Johnson is a 63-year-old grandmother who is serving a life sentence for a first-time non-violent drug offence.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Kardashian was visiting the White House but would not confirm the people with whom she was meeting.

Speaking after the meeting, Kardashian said: 'I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. "I believe that history will record that Kim Kardashian had the courage to take a stand against human warehousing and was a key figure in meaningful criminal justice reform becoming a reality".

Johnson's case became worldwide news a year ago when Kardashian West tweeted about it which, in turn, led to her penning the star a heartfelt thank you letter. She arrived solo, and reportedly didn't need to be escorted by a publicist nor any close member of her inner circle. It was revealed earlier this month that Kardashian West had spoken on the phone with Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, to discuss potentially granting Johnson clemency.

"She's always stood out to me as being exceptional", says Ms Povah. "Today is for you", adding the prayer hands emoji. Perhaps. Considering Trump's friendly relationship with her husband, West, and his affinity for celebrities who treat him well, it's likely. "More time in prison can not accomplish more justice".

The president recently mused that some drug dealers could be prime candidates for the death penalty.

"We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second chance at life", the statement said. The 1997 charges were Johnson's first.

"This is the last time I'll put my family through the heartache of expectations", Johnson told the BBC at the time.

Her petition for clemency was denied by President Barack Obama in 2016, despite supportive letters from her warden and other prison officials.
