Kim Kardashian Thanks President Donald Trump After White House Meeting

Kim Kardashian Thanks President Donald Trump After White House Meeting

Johnson is a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was imprisoned in 1996 and is serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.

Johnson is a first-time non-violent drug offender sentenced to life in prison.

Trump and members of his administration have spoken passionately in favor of prison and sentencing reform, but that has sometimes clashed with Trump's law-and-order approach, especially at the Justice Department.

The news, originally reported by Vanity Fair, states Kardashian-West first became aware of Alice Marie Johnson's story after watching a Mic video.

President Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian met at the White House to discuss prison reform.

During the White House press briefing Wednesday afternoon, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders wouldn't provide further details on who Kardashian West was meeting, only saying, "She is expected to be here at the White House".

Kim Kardashian West is making headlines today - and it's not because of an Instagram photo, an episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" or her multiple business ventures.

French Open organizers won’t give Serena Williams a seeding
Williams returned to the professional Women's Tennis Association (WTA) tour in March at Indian Wells in Southern California. The bubbly 20-year-old, seeded 21 for the French Open which starts on Sunday, has enjoyed a breakthrough season.

Many on social media have been critical of Mrs Kardashian West's unlikely role as prison reform advocate and say there are thousands of cases that deserve closer examination, but Johnson's daughters remain hopeful that - at least for their family - the long wait may soon be over.

Dressed in an all black suit and bright yellow stilettos, Kim clearly meant business as she was escorted into the president's abode by security staff.

Kardashian West's meeting with Trump comes on the heels of her husband, Kanye West, expressing his support for the president on Twitter.

Before sitting down with the president, Kardashian West sent out a tweet to mark Johnson's birthday.

Brittany Barnett, Johnson's lawyer, told CBS News' Jacqueline Alemany they are grateful the Kardashian sister is using her platform to help Johnson acquire her freedom. West has said he didn't vote in the presidential election, but if he had, he would have cast a ballot for Trump. "When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on that bus (the same year that I was born - 1955). that was a defining moment".

She was accompanied by her personal attorney, Shawn Holley, who is helping Johnson. But prison reform is something that she's been vocal about in the past; on Monday, she tweeted her support for Matthew Charles, a former inmate who turned his life around after 21 years of incarceration. "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out".
