Kim Kardashian meets Donald Trump to discuss prison reform

Reportedly, Kim asked the president to pardon a woman named Alice Marie Johnson, who supposedly is facing a life sentence for a non-violent drug offense.

Taking action! Kim Kardashian posed for a photo with President Donald Trump following their meeting at The White House on Wednesday, May 30.

The Daily Show host went on to say that Kim Kardashian can probably teach Trump a thing or two about diplomacy and how he should treat China like Blac Chyna. "And so far, the White House has been really receptive to my calls, and I'm grateful for that", she said.

The celebrity was on a mission to encourage Donald Trump to pardon Alice Marie Johnson, who has spent over 20 years in prison and isn't eligible for parole.

Kardashian West took interest in Johnson's case after her story went viral past year.

Ahead of the meeting with the guy who insists the Central Park Five are guilty despite DNA evidence, Kardashian and her attorney will join Kushner in the West Wing for a prison reform discussion.

Before sitting down with the president, Kardashian West sent out a tweet to mark Johnson's birthday. "I was drowning and you have thrown me a life jacket and given me hope that this Life jacket I'm serving may one day be taken off".

During the bitter 2016 election, Kardashian backed Trump's arch-rival Hillary Clinton.

Some have questioned her credentials to speak on the subject, suggesting there are more qualified people who should have met Mr Trump.

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. "Today is for you", adding the prayer hands emoji. Trump has the power to decide whether or not to pardon Johnson, but there has been no indicated yet as to what he will do.

Mr Kushner's First Step Act, which allots $50m (£38m) for rehabilitative programmes for inmates, passed in the US House of Representatives last week.

"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".

Kardashian's visit came after her husband, rapper Kanye West, publicly embraced Trump in a series of tweets late last month.
